Exploring the structure and evolution of the north american continent

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

EarthScope National Office @ ASU:

  • Foreground Education and Public Outreach

  • Propel EarthScope science

  • Community oriented ([email protected])

Synoptic perspective

Community data and facilities

Hierarchical nesting of focused projects within broad coverage

Integrative and multidisciplinary

Integrated geodetic and seismic facility cooperative agreement planning

Integrated geodetic and seismic facility cooperative agreement planning

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
