A call for nominations to the EarthScope community:

As the EarthScope MREFC (Major Research Equipment and Facilities Construction) phase approaches completion, 
the advisory structure for the EarthScope program is being revised to focus on its scientific goals.   We are currently 
soliciting nominations to populate the committees and working groups comprising the EarthScope advisory structure.

  . EarthScope Steering Committee (ESSC), assisted by the EarthScope National Office (ESNO), will be the liaison 
     between NSF and the EarthScope science community.

  . EarthScope Education and Outreach Subcommittee (EEOSC) will focus on the implementation of E&O activities, 
     including coordination with other related E&O activities.

  . EarthScope Cyber Infrastructure Subcommittee (ECISC) will provide advice for the continuing development
   of EarthScope cyberinfrastructure (data, data products, and information access and availability), including
   coordination with related cyberinfrastructure efforts.

  . Thematic Working Groups (TWG)  will advocate for, communicate results of, and coordinate scientific advances 
     for each of the EarthScope science themes.

For more information on the charge and current membership of each of these committees, descriptions of the TWGs 
and to nominate individuals for membership on these committees, please see www.earthscope.org/about_us.  
Please include contact information and a brief biographical summary with nominations.  Self-nominations are welcomed.  

Nominations are due by January 10, 2008.  A nominating committee chaired by current ESSC member Brad Hacker 
will provide the ESSC and NSF with  recommendations for new committee and working group members by mid-February.  
We anticipate that a call for nominations will be issued annually.

EarthScope will need broad participation from the geoscience research community to fulfill its promise.
Please do your part!
