In April 2007, the Geology Discipline Science Strategy Team was formed to update the Geology Discipline’s science strategy, Geology for a Changing World (http://pubs.usgs.gov/circ/c1172/). This document has served us well and has guided the science directions of Geology’s programs for the last eight years. Our new strategy will guide Geology’s science for the next decade and will build upon Geology for a Changing World and the new bureau science strategy, Facing Tomorrow’s Challenges (http://pubs.usgs.gov/circ/2007/1309/). The Geology Science Strategy Team is seeking advice from our scientists as well as the external community and invites you to take our survey. Our goal is to complete the new Geology Science Strategy by February 2008.

Geology Science Strategy Kick-Off
Future of Geology Meeting, April 16-19, 2007
Geology Discipline Managers met with the Geology Science Strategy Team in Shepherdstown, West Virginia in April 2007 to discuss how Geology’s work could tie into the new bureau strategy. One of the exercises was to write descriptions of new projects that Geology might begin to address the new bureau strategy.
Let us know with whom the Geology Science Strategy Team should be talking.
