The Office of Research is accepting proposals to apply for leadership of the National Science Foundation's EarthScope national office. Earthscope is an Earth science program designed to explore the four-dimensional structure of the North American continent. The deadline to submit a notification of intent to submit is July 12.

The EarthScope program provides a framework for broad, integrated studies across Earth sciences. Study areas include research on fault properties and the earthquake process; strain transfer; magmatic and hydrous fluids in the crust and mantle; plate boundary processes; large-scale continental deformation; continental structure and evolution; and composition and structure of the deep Earth. The program also offers opportunities for Earth science education at all levels and the ability to develop cyberinfrastructure to integrate, distribute and analyze data sets.

Organizations can submit one application to lead the EarthScope program. For more information about the internal selection process, go to http://go.unl.edu/tqn or contact Noah Clayton at nclayton2@unl.edu or 472-8031.
