Early Career Geoscience Faculty Visit to the National Science Foundation

Friday, August 2, 2013

If you are planning to go (or are thinking about going) on the optional NSF visit on August 2, please browse the NSF web site, which provides information about all of their programs, including the Program Directors. Particular web pages that may be useful give information about the Geoscience Directorate (this includes links to the Divisions of Atmospheric and Geospace Sciences, Earth Sciences, and Ocean Sciences), the Geoscience Staff, the Division of Undergraduate Education, and the Division of Human Resources.


Travel to NSF on your own by Metrorail. The nearest station to AGU is Dupont Circle (Red Line). Take the train in the direction of Glenmont two stops to Metro Center and change for the Orange Line in the direction of Vienna. Get off at the Ballston-MU station. From the top of the station escalator, turn right to Stuart Street. Turn left on Stuart and walk one block. The north entrance to NSF is directly in front of you across 9th St. N. Travel time ~45 minutes.

8:30-9:00 Check in at security desk (get visitor badge). You must have a government-issued photo identification (e.g., driver's license).
