GeoPRISMS Implementation Plan is out
The GeoPRISMS Steering and Oversight Committee (GSOC) is pleased to announce the recent release of the new GeoPRISMS Implementation Plan, which follows the GeoPRISMS Draft Science Plan submitted to NSF in April 2010.
This implementation plan is product of two implementation workshops (IWs), outcomes of which were synthesized by ~20 lead writers with contributions from the entire community. It will guide the next decade of continental margins research within GeoPRISMS. Thanks to all who contributed!!

GeoPRISMS began on October 1, 2010 (See About Us)
As of October 1, 2010, the NSF-funded GeoPRISMS Program is live, succeeding the highly successful MARGINS Program. The first GeoPRISMS Office, chaired by Julia Morgan, is housed at Rice University and available to answer any questions you may have about the new program, funding opportunities, and upcoming workshops.
The MARGINS Website still exists
The MARGINS website will continue to exist, providing an archival record of more than 10 years of great science, education, and outreach activities.
The new GeoPRISMS website will be updated incrementally over the next months to years, serving as a community resource about the GeoPRISMS Program, research, funding, education and outreach, and so much more. Check back often for updates.
Seeking GeoPRISMS research updates
In addition, we are eager to add more to the site, in particular, news and updates about your research, publications, and other activities. If you have something you would like to share with the GeoPRISMS community, please contact us.
And in general, we just look forward to hearing from YOU!
