USNC/IUGS -- International Union of Geological Sciences
This is the website of the U.S. National Committee (USNC) for the International Union of Geological Sciences (IUGS). The International Geoscience Program is a co-operative enterprise of UNESCO and IUGS. It was launched in 1972 to facilitate geological co-operation across international borders, as geological processes and structures normally cut across such boundaries. The program’s major aim is to bring together scientists from around the world and to encourage the involvement of developing countries. The USNC website provides information on a representative sample of IGCP projects.
