TOPIC A: Management structures for independent seismological and geodetic capabilities

  1. What are the scientific advantages of distributing seismological and geodetic capabilities (listed below) among multiple organizations (as is done at present)?
    1. instrumentation
    2. user support services
    3. data management
    4. education and outreach
    5. workforce development
  2. What are disadvantages?
  3. What can be learned from other scientific facilities about successful management practices to address future challenges and emerging capability needs?
  4. What management model aspects discussed during the workshop might allow the current facilities greater flexibility to respond to future unexpected scientific needs or technology developments?

TOPIC B: Management structures for centralized seismological and geodetic capabilities

  1. What are the scientific advantages of centralizing some or all of the seismological and geodetic capabilities listed below within a single managed facility?
    1. instrumentation
    2. user support services
    3. data management
    4. education and outreach
    5. workforce development
  2. Which of these capabilities might not be centralized within a single facility to scientific advantage and why?
  3. Which management and governance/decision-making structures might accommodate these unified capabilities, which could not, and why or why not?
  4. If only some of these capabilities might be centralized, what management structures might be necessary to accommodate all of the capabilities (i.e., those that might be unified and those that cannot)?

Modern geoscience research informs many important decisions and projects, such as geological disaster preparation, natural resource extraction, and global development. This critical research relies on technology and collaboration at state-of-the-art seismological and geodetic facilities. Currently, these facilities provide a wide variety of observation systems that support scientists' understanding of Earth and its changing environmental systems. As emerging technologies develop rapidly, seismological and geodetic facilities have new capabilities and more complex management and research communication systems. This requires a reevaluation of management structures and best practices within these facilities.

The National Academies convened a 1.5-day workshop to discuss management models of theoretical seismological and geodetic facilities of the future. Initial discussions built upon a 2015 Incorporated Research Institutions for Seismology community workshop report, which identified current and future capabilities of these research facilities. Management models from other types of scientific facilities were used as a springboard for further discussions about management and decision-making models that could be applied to seismological and geodetic facilities. Workshop participants also emphasized the importance of distributing capabilities among multiple facilities. Lastly, this workshop explored complex management topics in these facilities including instrumentation, user support services, data management, education and outreach, and workforce development capabilities. This publication summarizes the presentations and discussions from the workshop.
