Please register for "*Your PASSCAL Instrument Center: How to Get Started 
Planning Your First (or Next) Experiment*" on April 16, 2:00 PM EDT at 

*Presenter:* Megan Anderson, Associate Professor, Colorado College

*Abstract:* This webinar, geared for Early Career Investigators, will 
serve to help unmask the inner workings of the PASSCAL instrument center 
in Soccoro, NM. Never been to the instrument center and thinking about 
writing your first grant that proposes to utilize facility 
instrumentation? Not quite sure how to get started in working with the 
instrument center? Then this webinar is for you! We will start by 
briefly reviewing the multiple functions of the instrument center, but 
then quickly move into details of the practical aspects of working with 
the instrument center during the design, planning, and implementation of 
your experiment. We will cover the resources that the instrument center 
has available for you as well as what your responsibilities are in 
effective planning for your experiment, including scheduling, 
coordination with the NSF funding cycle, training for you and your 
students, shipping and care of the instrumentation in the field, and 
data archiving. Shifts in funding and recent personnel changes have 
prompted an effort within the facility to clarify policies as well as 
make a few practices more concrete, therefore this presentation may be 
of interest to more seasoned field investigators who would like an 
update on current practices for working with the instrument center, and 
a review of where to find relevant PASSCAL information.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing 
information on how to attend. *Please note that the webinar software 
limits attendance to 100 participants*; join the webinar early in case 
it is oversubscribed. Recordings are typically posted shortly afterwards
