Exchange of ideas for global studies



An all-day Union session at the upcoming AGU Spring Meeting will provide a forum for discussing the present-day advances and the new syntheses that may soon be possible through study of the earth as a system. According to session chairman Raymond A. Price of the Geological Survey of Canada (Ottawa), the goal of the session is to bring together speakers from a wide range of disciplines “to share some of the excitement that is being generated [through global studies] and to stimulate some synergism.” The “Earth as a System” session will be held on Tuesday, May 19, at the Baltimore, Md., meeting.
