GSNSC requests GSN travel support for a GSN member (Tromp, Laske, and/or Park, with Lay being alternative), to attend the ocean science meeting in January, to represent the GSN/USArray planning regarding possible scientific re-use of the ocean cables.
Committee supports the proposal that the designated IMS/AEDS stations be affiliated with the GSN and encourage the undertaking of appropriate arrangements to make it happen.
Committee supports invitation of an AFTAC external observer to future GSNSC meetings and requests the IRIS pursue such arrangements.
The committee unanimously adopts the following resolution:
Recognizing the lack of availability of new STS-1 sensors, GSNSC encourages that the USArray backbone stations identified as GSN stations be deployed with sites that are up to GSN vault standards, but with STS-2 sensors, and that USArray money allocated to purchase STS-1s be used to purchase STS-2 spares for the backbone stations. GSNSC also encourages the installation of the three borehole stations with attention to VBB sensor distribution.
