Re-organization of NSF's Earth sciences



The U.S. National Science Foundation announced 16 July that its Division of Earth Sciences would be re-organized into two new sections.

The Surface Earth Processes Section (SEP) will consist of the programs in hydrology (HS), education and human resources (EHR), sedimentary geology and paleobiology (SGP), geobiology and environmental geochemistry (GEG), and geomorphology and land use dynamics (GLD). The current budget for the new section is approximately $50 million per year.
