Earth Science Week 2005.. Promoting an understanding and appreciation of the value of Earth sciences PDF Print E-mail
Written by Glenn Letham (GISuser editor)   
06 October 2005
Since October 1998, the American Geological Institute has organized this national and international event to help the public gain a better understanding and appreciation for the Earth Sciences and to encourage stewardship of the Earth. This year's Earth Science Week will be held from October 9-15 and will celebrate the theme "Geoscientists Explore the Earth". This is the eighth year that American Geological Institute has organized this international event as a service to the public and to the earth science community.

The theme of Earth Science Week 2005 — “Geoscientists Explore the Earth” — focuses on career opportunities in the geosciences. The trend toward increasing demand for earth science professionals in the
next decade is led by the Baby Boomers’ escalating retirements and new opportunities in energy and mineral resources and environmental stewardship.

AGI established Earth Science Week in 1998 to promote public awareness of the earth sciences and stewardship of the Earth. Last year, the Earth Science Week celebration included more than 1.7 million people worldwide — and this year’s event promises to reach even more. Resources and events are sponsored by the U.S. Geological Survey, the American Association of Petroleum Geologists Foundation, and the National Park Service, with additional support from NASA, NOAA, and many more organizations.
