National Committee for Earth Sciences

The National Committee for Earth Sciences (NCES) aims to foster Earth sciences in Australia, link the Academy to Australian Earth scientists and relevant scientific societies, and serve as a link between Australian and overseas Earth scientists, primarily through the International Union for Quaternary Research, the International Union for Geodesy and Geophysics and the International Union for Geological Sciences.

The NCES seeks to shape future directions for Australian Earth sciences, including by producing a decadal plan for the discipline. The plan will facilitate and encourage community-wide strategic planning initiatives; engage with the national UNCOVER initiative generated by the Academy through the Chair of NCES; promote the national value and benefits of the Earth sciences; liaise with relevant Earth science stakeholders through the UNCOVER committees and national UNCOVER forums; develop a conduit to engage with state, territory and geological surveys, and Geoscience Australia; and manage relations between Australian Earth scientists, the Academy and international unions.
