As you may have heard, Dr. Herman Zimmerman, Director, Division of
Earth Sciences will retire from NSF in February 2006. The Division
of Earth Sciences (EAR) supports research and education activities
that improve our understanding of processes that govern the behavior
and characteristics of the Earth's surface environment and determine
its internal structure, composition and dynamics.
Through its disciplinary research programs, its support for
facilities and instrumentation, its education programs, and its
technical and administrative staff the Division enables research and
support for the ideas, tools and people to understand our earth.
The Division also supports the construction and operation of a
multi-purpose geophysical instrument array (EARTHSCOPE) that will
make major advances in our knowledge and understanding of the
structure and dynamics of the North American continent. This project
is funded from the Major Research Equipment and Facilities
Construction (MREFC) account. Information about the Division's
mission and programs is provided on its Home Page at
