Near-Surface Geophysics: Advancing Science Through Building Community
CC, Level 3, Room 327
1245h - 1345h

The objective of this Town Hall Meeting is to provide a forum for the AGU community interested in the new Near Surface Geophysics (NS) Focus Group (established at the December 2006 Executive Council Meeting) to meet and discuss science and community issues. We wish to hold this workshop at the 2006 Joint Assembly as it is the first AGU meeting where NS is running sessions (83 papers spread over 11 sessions) that will bring a sizeable portion of the AGU community interested in this focus group together.

The Town Hall Meeting will discuss a number of issues of general interest to our community. These will include [1] the recent formation of the NS Focus Group, its leadership and objectives, [3] plans for representation of the NS Focus Group at the various AGU meetings, [4] proposed interactions with other organizations promoting near surface geophysics research (e.g., Environmental and Engineering Geophysical Society (EEGS), Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG)).
