General Comment Period

The workshop planning committee provided an opportunity for participants in the room to make public comments. Individuals were given 3 minutes each to comment on any relevant topic. Appendix E is an unedited transcript of those comments. Below is a list of commenters and the topics they raised.

  • Maggie Benoit, National Science Foundation (NSF): Explanation of why NSF funded the workshop.
  • Eric Webb, Sandia National Laboratory: Student intern programs, life-cycle costs of sustaining capabilities, and difficulty partnering with NSF.
  • Michael Foote, The University of Chicago: Federal limitations on international collaborations.
  • Jim Yoder, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution: Small Business Innovative Research Program model.
  • Doug Hollett, Melroy & Hollett Technology Partners, LLC: Increased interaction between applied engineering and research science communities.
  • Egill Hauksson, California Institute of Technology: Fostering understanding of instrumentation among graduate students.
  • Sergio Barrientos, National Seismological Center, University of Chile: Partnerships for sustaining operational standards of earthquake early warning systems.
  • Glen Mattioli, UNAVCO: Response to Barrientos’ question about partnerships.
  • Rick Aster, Colorado State University: Continued response to Barrientos’s question about partnerships.
  • Kate Moran, Ocean Networks Canada: Partnerships in Canada (including answers to interjected questions from Hollett).
  • Enrique Cabral-Cano, Instituto de Geofísica, Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México, Mexico: Governance as part of management, U.S./international collaborations.

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.
