Prof. Wendy Harrison has been named division director for the National Science Foundation’s Division of Earth Sciences in the Directorate for Geosciences, effective Aug. 27, 2012. The NSF states the Division of Earth Sciences “supports basic research and education into the structure, composition, and evolution of the Earth, and the life it supports, and the processes that govern the formation and behavior of the Earth's materials. The Division has programs in geobiology and low-temperature geochemistry, geomorphology, sedimentary geology and paleobiology, continental dynamics, hydrology, geophysics, tectonics, petrology and geochemistry, instrumentation and facilities and education. The results of this research will create a better understanding of the Earth's changing environments, and the natural distribution of its mineral, water, biota, and energy resources and provide methods for predicting and mitigating the effects of geologic hazards such as earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, floods, landslides.”
