Science role in countering terrorism

Authors


Abstract

Geoscience expertise figures as a component of a new report on harnessing the U.S. science and technology community in the fight against terrorism.

The National Research Council report, “Making the Nation Safer: The Role of Science and Technology in Countering Terrorism,” proposes research agendas in a number of areas perceived to be vulnerable to terrorism. These areas include nuclear and radiological threats, toxic chemicals and explosive materials, information technology, energy systems, and cities and fixed infrastructure.
