Environmental Geoscience Advisory Committee

Function

The Environmental Geoscience Advisory Committee (EGAC) was established to help identify and focus on the highest priority environmental informational needs and issues best addressed by the geoscience community. In fulfilling its responsibilities, the committee should emphasize the need to draw on AGI's historical and existing strengths, and to endorse activities that are fiscally viable.

Responsibilities

  • Identify projects and activities that will help AGI achieve the following goals:

    - Increase public awareness and understanding of environmental issues and the controls of earth systems on these issues

    - Communicate societal needs for managing resources, protection from Earth hazards, and for evaluation of risks associated with human activities related to earth processes and resources

    - Promote appropriate science in public policy through improved communication within and without the geoscience community related to environmental policy issues and proposed legislation

    - Increase dissemination of information related to environmental programs, projects, research, and professional activities in the geoscience community

  • Assist in identifying appropriate parties to carry out the identified environmental projects and activities.

  • Assist in developing and setting priorities for AGI environmental program activities.

  • Identify opportunities for AGI member societies and other organizations to participate in environmental program activities.
