Tight budgetary times seem to be putting the squeeze on funding for geophysical science from many directions. In addition to potential heavy cuts in Defense Department support of academic research that may impact Earth and space science, the military's own mecca for geophysical research is in jeopardy.
Phillips Laboratory's Geophysics Directorate at Hanscom Air Force Base, Bedford, Mass., may not be funded for fiscal year 1996, according to the Air Force's budget projection released in June. The news falls on the eve of the Geophysics Laboratory's 50th Anniversary, September 20, 1995.
