These short (1-2 pages) documents will describe an important scientific question or problem the community member expects to be working on during the next decade and the seismic or geodetic facility capabilities that would enable further progress in addressing this scientific issue or support related to broader impact needs.
A workshop was held in mid-January to catalyze relationships between the two communities to address the foundational research needed on how people learn geoscience content and develop into expert geoscientists.
IRIS, UNAVCO, and the EarthScope National Office (ENO) are working together to gather community input for the NSF on the capabilities of the seismic and geodetic facilities needed to support fundamental research in the geosciences in the 2020s and beyond.
The ENGAGE Workshop - Encouraging Networks between Geoscience and Geoscience Education - will bring together early-career geoscience researchers and discipline-based education researchers to explore collaborative approaches that leverage advances in both geoscience disciplines and geoscience education.
J. Freeman Gilbert, a pioneer in applying modern computational tools to seismic problems, was one of the founding Directors of IRIS and was elected to the first Executive Committee of the Board. He was a wonderful colleague who will be sorely missed.
Thirty years ago, on May 8, 1984, the Incorporated Research Institutions for Seismology was formally certified as a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation in the State of Delaware, organized exclusively for educational and scientific purposes.
The event will provide an overview of the scientific discoveries that EarthScope has achieved over the last 10 years as well as a panel discussion highlighting its broader impacts. State-of-the-art EarthScope equipment will also be on display.
