The Community Engagement Office aims to build the identity of the Observatory beyond the scientific community, reaching government and leadership, educators, partners, and the media. This is achieved by elevating our scientists’ research and expressing the importance of Earth science awareness through both local and international media, and through the Observatory’s social channels.



We work with the media to provide expert commentary on topics including earth science phenomena, geohazard crises, and new research findings.

Social Channels

We’re social! Follow us on social media for stories, photos, and updates.
