The American Institute of Physics promotes science and the profession of physics, publishes physics journals, produces publications for scientific and engineering societies. The AIP is made up of various member societies, its corporate headquarters are at the American Center for Physics in College Park, but the institute has offices in Melville, New York, Beijing. The focus of the AIP appears to be organized around a set of core activities; the first delineated activity is to support member societies regarding essential society functions. This is accomplished by annually convening the various society officers to discuss common areas of concern. A range of topics is discussed which includes scientific publishing, public policy issues, membership-base issues, philanthropic giving, science education, science careers for a diverse population, a forum for sharing ideas. Another core activity is publishing the science of physics in research journals and conference proceedings. Member societies continue to publish their own journals.
Other core activities are tracking employment and education trends with six decades of coverage, being a liaison between research science and industry, historical collections and physics outreach programs, supporting science education initiatives and supporting undergraduate physics. One other core activity is as an advocate for science policy to the U. S. Congress and the general public; the AIP was founded in 1931 as a response to lack of funding for the sciences during the Great Depression. It formally incorporated in 1932 consisting of five original "member societies", a total of four thousand members. A new set of member societies was added beginning in the mid-1960s; as soon as the AIP was established it began publishing scientific journals. The AIP has a subsidiary called AIP Publishing dedicated to scholarly publishing by the AIP and its member societies, as well on behalf of other partners.

Loch Eck. It is seven miles long. Apart from Loch Lomond, it is the only occurring habitat of the Powan. Besides powan, the loch has salmon, sea trout, brown trout and arctic charr. Loch Eck is within the Argyll Forest Park which, is itself part of the Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park, it is close to the Benmore Botanic Garden and the Benmore Outdoor Centre, which uses the loch and its surrounding for outdoor learning. A pathway runs along the west side of the loch, gives access to the Paper Caves, set in the steep hillside with caving access to a platform set above a steep scarp within the cave. A legend holds that the Argyll family documents were hidden in the caves when the 9th Earl of Argyll was arrested, to prevent his lands from being made forfeit; the loch is an impounding reservoir with a concrete dam measuring.87 metres high. The dam was completed in 1973. Loch Eck now supplies the freshwater to much including Dunoon. In July 2013, two dogs died due to algal bloom present in the loch.
Warnings were posted advising that people and animals should avoid contact with the water. A similar incident occurred again in June 2019.
