Organizer of Minerals, Water, and Energy: The science that drives their interdependencies, feedbacks, and tradeoffs

October 31, 2018 @ 9:30 AM - 4:00 PM

The Board on Earth Sciences and Resources (BESR) coordinates the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine’s activities on solid-earth science issues and organizes and oversees studies of important national issues in the earth sciences. The Board oversees the following standing committees:

Committee on Earth Resources
Geographical Sciences Committee
Committee on Geological and Geotechnical Engineering
Mapping Science Committee
Committee on Seismology and Geodynamics
The Board and its standing committees serve as the focus for interaction with agencies; as a consequence of this interaction, multidisciplinary ad hoc study committees are established under the auspices of the Board or its standing committees to provide advice as identified by statements of task.

Through its activities, the Board identifies opportunities for advancing basic research and understanding of earth science information for policy decisions, reports on the applications of earth sciences to important societal issues, and addresses the overall health of research and education programs related to earth sciences and resources issues. The Board and its committees also serve as fora for discussions and exchange of information among scientists, engineers, and policy makers from government, universities, and industry.
