Earth Science

Editorial Board | Digital Collections

The Earth Science OHO presents critical perspectives on current research, applications, and their relationships within and across the disciplines that comprise the science. Not only does this include the latest developments in our understanding of physical processes but also how we adapt, mitigate, or otherwise respond to them – from risk assessment and management, health impacts, and engineering, to economics, and policy and governance issues. As Earth Science phenomena place greater pressure on decision makers to plan for the short and long term, a seamless exchange between scientists, researchers, and applications experts working at the forefront of their fields becomes paramount. The Earth Science OHO intends to be a meeting place and resource in this effort.
