AGI publishes Directory of Geosciences, 45th Edition

April 23, 2007

ALEXANDRIA, VA -- The latest edition of the Directory of Geoscience Departments (DGD) -- the definitive source for information about college and university geoscience departments in the United States and in 45 countries-- has just been published by the American Geological Institute (AGI).

The Directory of Geoscience Departments, 45th Edition, provides a state-sorted listing of 2,022 geoscience departments, research departments and institutes plus listings of their faculty and staff. The leadership of the major geoscience professional and scientific societies in the United States is included in this edition of the DGD along with information on non-U.S. departments in 45 countries. For the second year in a row, the directory includes a statistics section derived from the data used to compile this publication. This section gives data on geoscience student enrollments and degrees granted, faculty demographics, field camps and average annual salaries.

In addition to the information about geoscience departments, and faculty, the DGD includes listings of U.S. state geological surveys, professional and scientific geoscience societies, and faculty contact information. Other valuable features include highlighted departments that are also listed in AGI's comprehensive Online Guide to Geoscience Departments; and an expanded listing of federal agencies that employ or are of interest to geoscientists.

Published in soft cover (6" x 9"), the 561 page Directory of Geoscience Departments, 45th Edition (ISBN 0-922152-79-9), is available through the AGI publications department. To learn more about this book and other AGI publications please go to http://www.agiweb.org/pubs/index.html.

The American Geological Institute is a nonprofit federation of 44 geoscientific and professional associations that represents more than 120,000 geologists, geophysicists and other earth scientists. Founded in 1948, AGI provides information services to geoscientists, serves as a voice of shared interests in the profession, plays a major role in strengthening geoscience education, and strives to increase public awareness of the vital role the geosciences play in society's use of resources and interaction with the environment.
