Adoption of Resolutions
The AMS, through its Board on Higher Education and in coordination
with AGU, should collect, develop, and maintain resources
that would assist atmospheric and related science departments

of materials include statistics on faculty, students, enrollments
(undergraduate and graduate), and employment. These materials
should be available though the AMS web page in coordination
with the Science Education Resource Center.
The AMS and AGU, working jointly, will, before the next Heads
and Chairs meeting, collect information, such as planning
documents and assessment reports, that would be of use to
geoscience departments when representing their departments
and their contextual disciplinary setting to higher administration.
Whereas many universities have not subscribed to the official

The Heads and Chairs of Atmospheric and Geoscience Departments
