SESSION DESCRIPTION

The National Research Council has undertaken a study entitled Strategic Directions for the Geographical Sciences in the Next Decade that will formulate a short list of high-priority research questions in the geographical sciences that are relevant to societal needs. An ad hoc committee has been appointed to carry out this study, and as part of its information-gathering efforts, the committee has invited a group of speakers to present their ideas on the committee’s charge. Presenters will be speaking for approximately 10 minutes each, with time at the end for questions and comments.

PRESENTERS

QUESTIONNAIRE

The committee has also developed a questionnaire1 to allow members of the community to provide input on the committee’s task of identifying strategic research questions. The committee will review and consider this input as it deliberates on research questions at subsequent meetings.

Comments received by April 30, 2008, will be considered at the committee’s next meeting (May 21-23, 2008). However, the committee welcomes any ideas until August 2008.
