Revision of the AGU index set

Authors


Abstract

The AGU Index Set (or “GAP” terms for “Geophysical Abstracts in Press” terms) is used for classification of subjects covered by AGU. This index set has not been revised or altered since 1982.

The science itself of course has changed significantly in that period. Some areas of specializations have been less active than before, while others have increased in relative importance. New areas of research have also arisen.
