The 1979 Spring Meeting of the AGU (May 28–June 1) will have an exciting array of all-Union sessions. Louis Pakiser of the U.S. Geological Survey will present a lunchtime talk on the history of geophysical research at USGS. This talk helps mark the 100th anniversary of the founding of the USGS in March 1879.
The 10th anniversary of the first return to earth of lunar samples will be marked by a series of review talks on the results of an intensive decade of research on these samples. These talks will place this work in the context of a contemporary understanding of the earth and solar system.
