Abstract

President Don L. Anderson has set up a panel to review the federal budget as it applies to geophysics. The panel will propose a Union position on the federal budget, for Council approval.

In addition to reviewing individual budget items, the panel will consider student and educational support, items absent from the budget, and the balance among funded programs, for example, large versus small projects, or how much support is given to different disciplines. The panel was specifically charged with soliciting the views of other societies in formulating their recommendation.
