Exploring the Structure and Evolution of the North American Continent

Earth Sciences version of Hubble Space Telescope

Enables “survey mode” of continent that cannot be achieved with PI-driven efforts alone

Named the #1 “Epic Project” by Popular Science in 2011

IRIS and UNAVCO will submit proposals in September 2012 for integrated 2013-2018 Operations and Maintenance including USArray and the Plate Boundary Observatory.

The proposals must demonstrate deep community input.

Any expansion of purview will come from a fixed level of funding and therefore at the expense of something else important or increased efficiency.

UNAVCO/PBO and IRIS/USArray as base infrastructure for expansion and integration.

Lay the groundwork now to indicate scientific importance
