Enclosed in my summary of the results of the topical lunch on integrating earth system
science (ESS) at Cornell. Please feel free to comment!
Overall, there was broad support for more organization of ESS at Cornell--many folks
felt relatively isolated in their departments.
1. Follow-up meeting on graduate curriculum.
(I would be willing to lead, if no one else--please email courses from your department
which might be helpful for earth system science to me (nmm63))
2. Follow-up sub meetings in particular areas.
(I would be willing to lead a follow-up meeting on:
biogeochemistry/climate interactions. others want to volunteer?)
3. Please review web pages
(http://www.geo.cornell.edu/eas/PeoplePlaces/Faculty/mahowald/ESS/) --they go live
December 1 if we hear no complaints.
4. Create listserve (I will start this)
There are other areas we proposed having more organization (see below), if there are
folks who would be willing to lead sub-meetings in those areas, that would be great.
From our discussions, we came upon several areas where organizing can help:
1. Web presence for recruitment of students
