Alexandria, VA - The American Geosciences Institute (AGI) is pleased to announce the 50th edition of The Directory of Geoscience Departments.

To distinguish the 50th edition, a number of new features were added. Department listings now include social media contacts and indicate whether they host a field camp. The field camp listings are categorized as either open enrollment to students outside the department or department only enrollment. This edition also has two different faculty indexes sorting the faculty and researchers by their specialization and alphabetically. Indexing by specialization should help students find future advisors; faculty find new collaborators; and industry representatives find new experts in their specialization.

The Directory of Geoscience Departments is the premier guide to geoscience organizations worldwide and it is a vital resource for thousands of scientists, policymakers, publishers, students, and the general public to find various geoscience programs and connect with colleagues. The 50th Edition provides listings of over 2,400 university departments, museums, federal agencies, geological surveys, and research institutes. Contact information is provided as well as details on enrollments, faculty specialties and the date and source of faculty and staff's highest degree.
