*Call for Nominations:* Committee on Seismology and Geodynamics

The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine’s Committee
on Seismology and Geodynamics (COSG) is searching for new members. COSG was
established in 2000 and serves as the focal point for community discussion
and community-agency interaction on issues related to the structure,
dynamics, and evolution of the Earth. The mission of the committee is to
organize and oversee studies, workshops, and forums that will:

   - foster and encourage understanding of the structure, dynamics and
   evolution of the Earth;
   - review and define basic and applied research activities in seismology,
   geodesy and geodynamics that contribute to federal agency missions;
   - address the transfer of seismological and geodynamics knowledge to
   areas of public welfare and national need including topics such as
   earthquake science; geological hazards; energy, mineral, and water
   resources; national security; global climate change; land-use planning; and
   public education;
   - foster long-term national efforts to collect, store and openly
   disseminate seismological, geodetic, and geodynamical data of all types; and
   - foster long-term national efforts to monitor geodynamical events as
   well as nuclear testing treaties using geophysical technologies.

The committee also serves as the U.S. member of the International
Lithosphere Program. More information on COSG can be found here:

We welcome the nominations of volunteers with expertise in all aspects of
geophysics, but are particularly interested in seismology, mineral
physics/rock mechanics, magnetotelluric/electromagnetic methods, sea
level/cryosphere-solid Earth interactions, and/or industry. The current
membership is here:
