The Committee on Seismology and Geodynamics (COSG) is a standing committee
within the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine’s
Board on Earth Sciences and Resources. COSG serves to facilitate community
discussion and community-agency interaction on issues related to the
structure, dynamics, and evolution of the Earth. COSG helps to organize and
oversee National Academies studies, workshops, and forums, and holds
twice-yearly meetings on a variety of topics. Recent topics have included
subduction zone science, high-performance computing, precision geodesy, and
volcanism and volcanic hazards.

The committee is always looking for new topics to highlight and to focus
these community-agency discussions in the future. You can find a full list
of topics covered in the past, along with a list of current committee
members on the COSG website: If you
have suggestions, or want to know more, please reach out to one of the
committee members or to Deborah Glickson, National Academies staff (
