Jessica Ball is a Science Policy Fellow at the Geological Society of America's Washington DC office and she's looking to post the broader impacts of YOUR research on her blog! Some questions that she would like to know include: What are the broader impacts of your work? Why is it important-and why should it be funded? This is being done to help support letters written to Congress for sustained or increased funding, to point out the value of basic research in general, and to demonstrate why it's a good investment. She has created a tumblr page to collect your responses, so please submit a post.
