Recent pressures to reduce federal agency support in several scientific areas of national interest have motivated the AGU GP Section to review the present status of geomagnetism in federal agencies. Federal GP activities are currently spread over four agencies (the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), and Naval Oceanographic Office), two of which have in-house research efforts. Partly because of recent budget reductions, the support and encouragement that each of these groups receives for scientific research has waned severely.
