Welcome to AESE

The Association of Earth Science Editors (AESE) is a group of individuals involved in selection, editing, and publication of manuscripts, books, journals, reports, and maps pertaining to the earth sciences. AESE provides a forum for the interchange of ideas that will lead to more effective dissemination of earth science information to the scientific community, educators and students, and the public.
