AGU Position Statements

From time to time the AGU Council adopts position statements that relate the understanding and application of the geophysical sciences to relevant public policy. In making such statements, the Council limits itself to positions that are within the range of available geophysical data or norms of legitimate scientific debate. Each statement expires after four years unless reaffirmed. Learn more about AGU’s Advocacy Policy.
