National Science Foundation Annual Report 1989.
National Science Foundation, Washington, DC.
The report begins with a statement from the National Science Foundation (NSF) director, followed by a series of research notes summarizing research findings and results during the year 1989. Chapter 1, "Research Collaborations," describes some examples of the collaborations between universities, industry, and government in astronomy, atmospheric sciences, materials research, engineering, and supercomputing. Chapter 2 outlines NSF-supported projects in geosciences and global change, such as the World Ocean Circulation Experiment, the Tropical Ocean/Global Atmosphere project, and several projects in atmospheric science and polar research. Chapter 3 focuses on education and outreach programs, including Project 2061, named for the year Halley's comet will return and designed to develop a new approach to teaching; urban education projects; university-level activities; and NSF's Experimental Program To Stimulate Competitive Research. A section on award winners of 1989 and NSF news follows, and a list of NSF staff and National Science Board Members and a patents and financial table for 1989 are provided in the appendices. The report is amply illustrated with both black and white and color photographs and other graphics. (YP)
