Congressional Webinar: “Building the Modern World: Geoscience that Underlies our Economic Prosperity”

Geoscience information is integral to the strength and growth of communities and provides the resources for economic growth. All building materials, energy resources, construction projects, and hazard mitigation efforts are fundamentally based on geoscientific data and the geoscience workforce. This webinar, also presented as a Congressional briefing on June 12th, brings together experts from industry, academia, and non-profits to discuss the geoscientific underpinnings of our economy and society.
