Scientific Questions • Balanced, timely, “complete” characterization of the SAFOD volume, including earthquake locations Scientific Questions • Balanced, timely, “complete” characterization of the SAFOD volume, including earthquake locations • Capturing slow earthquakes • Magmatic system eruption characterization (predictive) • NRT 4 D transform fault plate boundary behavior • Development of integrated data analyses • Identification/development of new scientific products • Identification/development of new science education tools/modules • Maximizing PBO and USArray geometry • Planning Flex. Array and campaign GPS deployments

Education and Outreach • The Earth. Scope Program and the PI-based educational network require Education and Outreach • The Earth. Scope Program and the PI-based educational network require high degree of coordination • Maintain the excitement, enthusiasm, and participation of the educational network community • Insure that the “integrative link” education and outreach oversight duties of ESEC (now a FACA) are not lost • Work with all parties to develop a community driven Earth. Scope E & O Program • Seek appropriate resources to fully develop Earth. Scope E & O • Support an Earth. Scope Education Coordinator in the Earth. Scope Office to coordinate E & O across the program

Earth. Scope as an NSF/EAR Facility • Goal – Data in support of EAR Earth. Scope as an NSF/EAR Facility • Goal – Data in support of EAR science goals • Science directed • Community driven • Open access • Product – Data • Science-appropriate • Cutting edge technology • Free and open access • Quality control • Management Plan – Oversight and governance • Coordination and balance – Equipment Acquisition • Specification • Procurement • Inventory and control – Operations • Operation and maintenance • Data management • Technology R&D – Partnerships
