It's your history



The AGU Committee on the History of Geophysics (CHG) has been active since 1982. You have probably noticed our activities: Eos history articles edited by Bill Glen and talks and sessions dealing with history at AGU meetings. Perhaps you have also seen the CHG newsletter produced by Sam Silverman, or the recent volume The History of Hydrology edited by Ed Landa, third in the series History of Geophysics, coordinated and edited by C. Stewart Gillmor. Or you might have attended, in San Francisco (Calif.), the VGP session “Development of the Blueschist Fascies Concept,” chaired by Charles Gilbert, the first history session to be videotaped by AGU.
