EarthScope is an Earth science program to explore the 4-dimensional structure of the North American continent. The EarthScope Program provides a framework for broad, integrated studies across the Earth sciences, including research on fault properties and the earthquake process, strain transfer, magmatic and hydrous fluids in the crust and mantle, plate boundary processes, large-scale continental deformation, continental structure and evolution, and composition and structure of the deep Earth. In addition, EarthScope offers a centralized forum for Earth science education at all levels and an excellent opportunity to develop cyberinfrastructure to integrate, distribute, and analyze diverse data sets.
This Solicitation primarily encourages submission of proposals that integrate and synthesize major outcomes of EarthScope research and education and outreach efforts with the goal of elucidating and documenting the advances the EarthScope program has made since its inception.
This Program also accepts single investigator or collaborative proposals to conduct scientific research and/or education and outreach activities within North America that
- Make use of capabilities provided through, and/or data and/or models derived from, GAGE (Geodesy Advancing Geosciences and EarthScope), SAGE (Seismological Facilities for the Advancement of Geosciences and EarthScope), and/or SAFOD (San Andreas Fault Observatory at Depth);
- Further the scientific and educational goals of EarthScope, as described in the 2010 EarthScope Science Plan and/or EarthScope Education and Outreach Implementation Plan; and
- Do not make use of or require access to the SAFOD Main Hole or SAFOD Pilot Hole.
