GeoPRISMS Implementation Plan
Last updated on: 12/23/2013
The Implementation Plan arising from two implementation workshops, and subsequent Primary Site planning workshops can be found below and is based upon input received from the more than 750 participants at these workshops, as well white paper contributors. More than 40 writers (listed in IP Appendix A) took the lead in synthesizing this input assisted by many other members of the community. This Implementation Plan is truly a community effort!

GeoPRISMS Draft Science Plan

At the request of NSF and following the recommendation of the MARGINS Decadal Review Committee (DRC), a Draft Science Plan was submitted to NSF for a MARGINS successor program, here named GeoPRISMS (Geodynamic Processes at RIfting and Subducting MarginS).
This Draft Science Plan emerged from the MARGINS Successor Planning Workshop in San Antonio, 15-17 February 2010, taking into account the DRC’s recommendations. Over 200 scientists attended the Planning Workshop, demonstrating great interest in a successor program and resulting in substantial community input to the design of these plans. The Draft Science Plan was written by a group of about 20 authors (listed in Appendix A) chosen by, and including members of, the MARGINS Steering Committee, with Julia Morgan overseeing the process. A complete preliminary draft was made public in late March 2010, allowing two weeks for public comment on the entire plan. The final version that you see below incorporates that feedback. The Draft Science Plan was submitted on April 19, 2010, and was accepted by NSF.
