Dear colleagues:
We are seeking nominations for members of the National Research Council’s Committee on Seismology and Geodynamics (COSG).  The COSG focuses on scientific and policy issues related to the structure, dynamics, and evolution of the Earth (see the list of recent reports below).  Committee members are chosen to cover the principal fields of solid earth science and associated measurement, modeling, and computational methods.  Given the current activities of the committee, we are particularly interested in nominations for individuals with expertise in the following fields:
* earthquake seismology
* geodynamics
* geodesy
* volcanology
* structural geology
* mineral physics
* hazards (e.g., earthquake, volcano, landslide)
* nuclear monitoring
* computational methods
Please send your suggestions (e.g., name, affiliation, email address, expertise) by January 31.  Thank you.
