American Geophysical Union Fall Meeting: EarthScope Town Hall

EarthScope and Beyond: Current and Future Facility Support for Geodesy, Seismology, and Geophysics Research and Education in the Geosciences 

Wednesday, 12 December 2018 | 12:30 - 13:30

Marriott Marquis, Room:Independence D 

EarthScope, IRIS, and UNAVCO submitted a joint Town Hall proposal for the upcoming AGU Fall meeting.

The first part of the Town Hall will cover the emphasis areas for EarthScope in its final year, including documenting the immense scientific impact of the program and legacy projects. The second part will look to the future. In October 2018, IRIS and UNAVCO will begin new 5-year cooperative agreements with NSF to manage seismic and geodetic facilities to support research and education in the geosciences (Seismological Facility for the Advancement of Geoscience – SAGE, and Geodetic Facility for the Advancement of Geoscience – GAGE). The Town Hall will inform current and potential users of these facilities of plans for geodetic and seismic instrumentation, data services, and education programs over the next five years.

We will share a list of EarthScope-related presentations and posters, once AGU releases the full scientific program in October.
