GeoPRISMS Alaska Primary Site
- Draft Implementation Plan is now available for review
The GeoPRISMS Implementation Plan for the Alaska Primary Site has been revised based on the outcomes of the recent GeoPRISMS-EarthScope Planning Workshop on Alaska, held in Portland, OR in September 2012. A draft of the revised Implementation Plan is now available for public review and comment, here:
The lead writers (listed below) have done an extraordinary job synthesizing the outcomes of the Alaska workshop, and identifying the key directions for future GeoPRISMS research in Alaska. They deserve high praise for their efforts. By definition, the need to prioritize the science means that not everything can be included in the plan; the scientific summaries are designed to be informative but succinct (citations are minimal), and the implementation plans tractable and achievable within the decadal time frame of GeoPRISMS. Even so, the plan is ambitious, ensuring that the best science will have to compete for the available GeoPRISMS funds, and additional funding strategies must be pursued to achieve the grand GeoPRISMS science objectives.
We look forward to your constructive comments to help improve and solidify this community implementation plan for the Alaska Primary Site, and please remember - the deadline for comments is April 6, 2012!!
