October 9-15 is Earth Science Week. This year's theme is "Our Shared Geoheritage." Rather than focusing on one aspect of earth science, this year's theme considers a variety of geologic fields and how people interact with earth features and resources and are affected by them.
Earth Science Week promotes education and understanding of our environment. There are activities for the classroom, other activities that focus on specific areas, and contests. And, very helpful, a directory of geoscience agencies, companies, and organizations around the country.
So go ahead and learn more about how geology has affected history and continues to affect life, politics, and the economy. Check out Earth Science Week for more information and local events.
