International geoscience



A special committee of the National Research Council (NRC) held a congressional briefing in late June 1987 about the international role of U.S. geoscience. The Board on Earth Sciences (BES) organized the presentation, and participants included scientists, representatives of government agencies, and Congressional staff members. A report issued by the Committee on Global and International Geology of the NRC was also made available. Perspectives on the past, present, and recommended future of U.S. participation in international geoscience were given by participant scientists.
