Please join us at the 8th annual Geosciences Congressional Visits Day (Geo-CVD) on 29-30 September 2015 in Washington, DC. Geo-CVD brings leading Earth and space scientists throughout the country to Capitol Hill to visit representatives in Congress, cultivate relationships, and communicate the importance of federal investment in geoscience and geoscience education.

Policy staff from the American Geosciences Institute will schedule and accompany you to meetings with Members of Congress and their staff so that you can discuss your research and illustrate the importance of supporting federally funded Earth and space research at agencies like NSF, DOE, NASA, NOAA, EPA, and USGS. You are encouraged to participate in Geo-CVD whether you have participated in congressional activities before or not.

Please RSVP to Abigail Seadler ( by Monday, 31 August. Be sure to include your primary home and work addresses so we can determine your congressional district. An introductory webinar will be held ahead of Geo-CVD for new participants outlining what to expect; however, if you have any immediate questions please contact Abigail Seadler.

Please note that, unfortunately, no travel funds are available for Geo-CVD participants. Additionally, employees of federal agencies may participate but are encouraged to contact their agency's legislative affairs office prior to the event.

Migrating low-frequency tremors observed at shallow subduction interface
A University of Tokyo research group has discovered slow-moving low-frequency tremors which occur at the shallow subduction plate boundary in Hyuga-nada, off east Kyushu. This indicates the possibility that the plate boundary in the vicinity of the Nankai Trough is slipping episodically and slowly (over days or weeks) without inducing a strong seismic wave.

An improved age for Earth's latest magnetic field reversal using radiometric dating
Research Organization of Information and Systems
The Earth's magnetic field experiences reversals such that north becomes south. The age of the latest reversal is unclear. Researchers have dated volcanic ash that was formed immediately before the last reversal. This result and chronology of the associated sedimentary rock identifies the age of the reversal as 780,000 years ago. This new age will contribute calibrating the geological time scale.
