5-Year Plan Budget

The 5-year plans came in from the programs in a variety of forms.  Shane & Tom tried to organize them in some similar format with a Core budget of ~$14M.yr and then a series of initiatives and opportunities that might be available with additional external funding.  Sources of that funding are suggested.

 

Other CoCom Issues for the Board

  1. There has been some confusion with permitting of flexible array experiments and their relationship to PBO & USArray.  The BoD should discuss if/how to raise these issues with EarthScope.

  1. The PASSCAL Standing Committee continues to be concerned about the awkward relationship between “Passcal” instrumentation and “EarthScope” instrumentation and their usage policies.  The BoD should discuss if/how to pursue these concerns with EarthScope and NSF.
