Please register for "*Your PASSCAL Instrument Center: How to Get Started
Planning Your First (or Next) Experiment*" on April 16, 2:00 PM EDT at

*Presenter:* Megan Anderson, Associate Professor, Colorado College

*Abstract:* This webinar, geared for Early Career Investigators, will
serve to help unmask the inner workings of the PASSCAL instrument center
in Soccoro, NM. Never been to the instrument center and thinking about
writing your first grant that proposes to utilize facility
instrumentation? Not quite sure how to get started in working with the
instrument center? Then this webinar is for you! We will start by
briefly reviewing the multiple functions of the instrument center, but
then quickly move into details of the practical aspects of working with
the instrument center during the design, planning, and implementation of
your experiment. We will cover the resources that the instrument center
has available for you as well as what your responsibilities are in
effective planning for your experiment, including scheduling,
coordination with the NSF funding cycle, training for you and your
students, shipping and care of the instrumentation in the field, and
data archiving. Shifts in funding and recent personnel changes have
prompted an effort within the facility to clarify policies as well as
make a few practices more concrete, therefore this presentation may be
of interest to more seasoned field investigators who would like an
update on current practices for working with the instrument center, and
a review of where to find relevant PASSCAL information.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing
information on how to attend. *Please note that the webinar software
limits attendance to 100 participants*; join the webinar early in case
it is oversubscribed. Recordings are typically posted shortly afterwards
