EarthScope is a new Earth sciences initiative designed to dramatically improve our understanding of the evolution and dynamics of the North American continent. It is a partnership extending throughout the Earth science community, including more than 100 U.S. universities, the National Science Foundation, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, the U.S. Geological Survey regional seismic network, and state geological surveys.
Over 50 scientists and educators recently gathered to lay the foundation for EarthScopes education and outreach (E&O) program. The workshop brought together representatives of the Earth, space, and ocean science communities from colleges and universities, professional science and education societies, K-l2 schools, and state and federal agencies.
