A letter from the President


  • Subir K. Banerjee


This is the first issue of The GP Compass, a quarterly newsletter for the Geomagnetism and Paleomagnetism (GP) Section, as promised in my statement prior to my election as President. As I have stated, the newsletter should provide a focus for our members and bring a greater visibility to the activities of our section for the benefit of AGU members as a whole. Compared to some other section members, GP members tend to do their research individually rather than as large groups. Therefore a newsletter such as this ought to help inform us about the progress being achieved in the different areas within geomagnetism.
