2017 US Science Plan for NSF

Your input is needed!

The US National Science Foundation has directed CSDCO to organize the communities it serves to frame the outstanding questions in research, and prioritize sites, tools, and approaches to answer them using continental scientific drilling and coring. The 2017 Science Plan for Paleorecords communities is the result of two workshops and extensive work over past months by many members of the community and CSDCO staff.

Before submitting the Science Plan to NSF, we need your review and input to be certain the plan reflects your scientific vision. Please edit and comment on the US Continental Scientific Drilling Science Plan 2017-2027 (download MSWord doc). Please consider forwarding this message to your colleagues.

Return your comments on the document to Mark Shapley at shap0029@umn.edu before Sept. 30, 2017.

Portions of the Science Plan related to other communities (Critical Zone, Deep Biosphere and Geomicrobiology, Volcanism, Geothermal, Fault Zone, Hydrology, Impact Structures, and others) will be available for input in the coming weeks.
