The fault zone, which was too thin and weak, caused the 2011 Tohoku-Oki earthquake in Japan to be so big.
At AAAS we believe that many of the solutions to these problems will come from the scientific community. Yet, science has rarely been met with the levels of public skepticism and uncertain funding conditions that exist today.
In light of these challenges, we hope that you will consider joining AAAS as we pursue our mission of advancing science and serving society.
Every day AAAS's staff, alongside our over 120,000 global members, put these words into practice by:
- helping educators to groom the next generation of researchers
- working with policymakers to strengthen governmental commitment to science
- engaging with the public to increase their understanding of science
- assisting individual scientists in developing long and fruitful careers.
Now, more than ever, AAAS needs people like you to join with us and lend your support to our efforts on behalf of scientists, engineers, and concerned citizens everywhere. Together we can make a difference.
In addition to supporting critical programs, your AAAS Membership gives you access to cutting edge research with a one year subscription to Science, one of the world's most respected peer reviewed journals.
AAAS + U= Change. Together we can make a difference. Join AAAS today.
