Bromley discusses policy with scientific societies


  • Stephen Cole


D. Allan Bromley, President Bush's science advisor, met with presidents and executive officers of two dozen physical science and mathematics societies on January 22 to discuss major issues affecting the scientific community and federal science policy. AGU President G. Brent Dalrymple presented one of four talks given at the meeting on the issue of support for small science.

Bromley invited the society leaders to meet with his staff on the Office of Science and Technology Policy in an effort to tap the expertise of scientific societies in formulating science policy. AGU Executive Director Fred Spilhaus remarked that he was impressed by the openness of the meeting and the obvious value Bromley placed on the societies' input.
