2) Town Hall Meeting on EarthScope and Beyond: Current and Future Facility Support for Geodesy, Seismology and Geophysical Research and Education in the Geosciences (TH33D)

Come to this Town Hall meeting to learn about the activities of the EarthScope National Office in its final year as it synthesizes and documents the many scientific achievements of the EarthScope program and its tremendous impact on our field. Also learn about the two new 5-year awards by NSF to IRIS and UNAVCO to manage seismic and geodetic facilities to support research and education in the geosciences: SAGE (Seismological Facility for the Advancement of Geoscience) and GAGE (Geodetic Facility for the Advancement of Geoscience). 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. Box lunches will be provided.

When: Wednesday, Dec. 12th 12:30-1:30 pm

Hope to see you at both events!
