A Citywide Celebration of Earth Science
October 11-17, 2015
Earth Science Week, the geoscience community's leading public awareness campaign, reaches over 50 million people a year through instructional materials, events, promotions, media coverage, and the Internet. The celebration has taken place annually since its inception in 1998, and Houston has always played a big part!
Earth Science Week Houston's founding partners - the Houston Geological Society and the American Geosciences Institute - invite you to take advantage of the wealth of educational materials, events, and opportunities available:
This year's event theme, “Visualizing Earth Systems”, explores what it means to see our planet through eyes informed by the geosciences. Using technologies ranging from on-site data collection to satellite-based remote sensing, scientists investigate conditions of Earth systems. And today’s geoscientists display their findings in charts, graphs, diagrams, illustrations, photos, videos, computer-generated animations, and 3D-printed creations.
