The IUGG Electronic Journal
Volume 1 No. 4 (May 1, 2001)
This short, informal newsletter is intended to keep IUGG Member National Committees informed about the activities of the IUGG Associations, and actions of the IUGG Secretariat. Past issues are posted on the IUGG Web site. Please forward this message to those who will benefit from the information. Your comments are welcome.
1. IUGG Bureau Requesting Guidance for Strategic Planning
During the month of May, Associations and Member Countries will receive questionnaires from the IUGG Bureau intended to survey their opinions regarding the structure and procedures of the IUGG. Our intent is to modernize and improve. IUGG will appreciate your immediate attention and response when these questionnaires arrive.
2. IAMAS Grants to attend Assembly exceed $43,000
The IAMAS Scientific Assembly will be held July 10-18, 2001, in Innsbruck, Austria. Prof. Roland List, Secretary-General of IAMAS, reports that 57 scientists (including 13 young scientists) from 27 countries have been approved for travel assistance totaling US $ 43,878. Dr. List noted that the total includes a contribution of $ 5000 from the World Meteorological Organization. For additional information about the Assembly, visit the IAMAS web sites http://meteo.uibk.ac.at/IAMAS2001 or www.iamas.org/.
3. Peter Wyllie to receive Roebling Medal
Peter Wyllie, immediate Past-President of the IUGG, has been awarded the 2001 Roebling Medal of the Mineralogical Society of America. It will be presented at the Annual Meeting of the Geological Society of America in Boston, Massachusetts, on November 6th. The Roebling Medal is the highest award of the Mineralogical Society of America for scientific eminence as represented primarily by scientific publication of outstanding original research in mineralogy.
4. IUGG meetings occurring during May-July, 2001
A calendar of meetings of interest to IUGG disciplines (especially those organized by IUGG Associations) has been added to the IUGG Web Site [www.IUGG.org]. More information about these meetings can be found there. Individual Associations also list more meetings appropriate to their disciplines. For example, the International Association of Hydrological Sciences (IAHS/AISH) has a complete "meetings" section on their web site: http://www.cig.ensmp.fr/~iahs.
