Outreach Partner Inquiry: AGI Study on the impact of COVID-19 on the Geosciences


The American Geosciences Institute is conducting a year-long study to understand how geoscience employers and educational institutions are changing their workplace and instructional environments in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and to discover which of these changes will become permanent.

This study is open to all geoscientists, including geoscience students, retired, and not currently employed, who reside in the United States, and are at least 18 years old.

Over the next 52 weeks, survey participants will be emailed a brief online status survey twice a month, which will only take a few minutes to complete.

The results of this study will be valuable in helping geoscience academic institutions, geoscience employers and decision makers to understand the structural impacts on the geoscience enterprise from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Results from the study will be reported only in aggregate and in a manner that ensures the confidentiality of the responses. Participation is voluntary, and participants may discontinue their participation at any time.
