Dear colleagues,

We are seeking nominations for 1-2 new committee members for the National
Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine’s Committee on Seismology
and Geodynamics. COSG 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

· 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 Inter-Union Commission
on the Lithosphere.

We are specifically looking for nominees with expertise in geodesy,
geodynamics, tsunami hazards, and/or sea level rise. Please submit your
nominations by April 14, 2017 to Courtney Gibbs (cgibbs<at><mailto:
cgibbs<at>>) or contact Deborah Glickson (dglickson<at><mailto:dgli
ckson<at>>) for more information.
