Dear Colleagues,

NSF has recently commissioned a pool of seafloor geodetic equipment that 
will be available to the community.  The initial pool will include the 
components for 16 GNSS-Acoustic sites, in addition to 3 Wave Gliders for 
data collection.  The instruments will be ready for deployment in 2021, 
however the use of these instruments is currently undefined and 
unfunded.  NSF has asked for community guidance on how best to utilize 
these instruments.

An initial conversation about this future resource was held at one of 
the Special Interest Groups at the SAGE/GAGE workshop.  To further 
advance this discussion and facilitate future planning, an online survey 
has been created to capture the level of interest and preferences of the 
community.  We invite participation in the survey (16 questions), which 
is located here:

Please complete the survey by October 25th.  The results of the survey 
will provide an initial snapshot of the community's expectations, and 
guide next steps, which will likely include a future workshop.
