Meeting Summary

Karen Fischer provided feedback and encouragement from the IRIS Board on the role of the IDSC under the SAGE-facility award to IRIS. The IDSC will continue to investigate linkages to relevant activities under SAGE (internships, RAMP) that have potential international impacts. This includes pursuing funds through multiple tracks under the IRES solicitation recently announced by NSF. The IDSC will also facilitate, through use of the Simpson Innovation Fund, two additional international internships during summer 2019 under a broader theme of seismology related to natural hazards. The committee plans to recruit new members with connections to the geodetic science community, and begin to outline a potential RCN proposal related to SZ4D.
