“Our Ever-Changing Earth” is the theme of Earth Science Week 2011, which is an annual event that promotes scientific understanding of our planet.
Among the events are three national contests, including:
The ESW program, launched by the American Geological Institute in 1998, encourages a “grass roots” effort for the geosciences community to publicize the event, distribute teaching materials and provide guidance for those interested in participating in ESW.
Earth Science Week is organized annually by AGI with support from the AAPG Foundation, the U.S. Geological Survey, NASA, the U.S. National Park Service, ExxonMobil, ESRI and others.
A poster promoting activities being held Oct. 9-15 is inserted in U.S. addresses of this issue of the EXPLORER at pages 10-11.
