The President's Page: Communication of geophysics


  • Philip H. Abelson


Geophysics is in process of improving its modes of communication internally and to the public and policy makers. In the coming years new or updated methods will be employed that could serve as a model for other disciplines. The pattern that is emerging results from discussions involving the Geophysics Research Board of the National Academy of Sciences, the U.S. National Committee for Geophysics, and the Council of the AGU.
