Appendix B
Community Input Questionnaire

The following questionnaire was distributed through many networks, including the National Science Foundation’s (NSF’s) Division of Earth Science (EAR); the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine; professional societies; and disciplinary listservs, with a goal of obtaining input to this report from a broad range of the Earth science community. The committee received almost 350 responses to this form.


The Catalyzing Opportunities for Research in the Earth Sciences (CORES) committee is seeking guidance from the Earth sciences community on research priorities for the coming decade, and asks for your input. The deadline to submit input is March 1, 2019, and the success of this effort depends upon vigorous community engagement. The CORES committee thanks you for your participation.

The information you provide in response to this questionnaire will inform the CORES committee in its consideration of its study charge. In accordance with Section 15 of the Federal Advisory Committee Act, any information you provide to the committee will be placed in and available through the project’s public access record. Responses will be anonymized but will otherwise appear as they are submitted.

  1. Your Name*
  2. Your Email*
  3. Your Affiliation *
  4. Your Discipline*
  5. Which best describes your current career stage?*
    1. Early Career
    2. Not Early Career

You are welcome to comment on the charge to the committee, but we specifically seek your input on the following:

  1. Across all disciplines, list 3 important scientific topics or issues that you believe should drive future research in Earth science and intersecting fields.
  2. Within your own discipline, list 3 important scientific topics or issues that you believe should drive future research in Earth science and intersecting fields.
  3. List up to 3 ideas for infrastructure (physical infrastructure, cyberinfrastructure, data management systems, etc.) that will be needed to address the above topics or issues over the next decade.
  4. How might NSF best leverage this research and infrastructure through collaboration with other NSF divisions and directorates, federal agencies, and domestic and international partners?
  5. How might NSF contribute to training a workforce prepared to lead innovation and discovery in Earth science and intersecting fields over the next decade?
  6. Other comments pertinent to the committee’s charge.

The Earth system functions and connects in unexpected ways - from the microscopic interactions of bacteria and rocks to the macro-scale processes that build and erode mountains and regulate Earth’s climate. Efforts to study Earth's intertwined processes are made even more pertinent and urgent by the need to understand how the Earth can continue to sustain both civilization and the planet's biodiversity.

A Vision for NSF Earth Sciences 2020-2030: Earth in Time provides recommendations to help the National Science Foundation plan and support the next decade of Earth science research, focusing on research priorities, infrastructure and facilities, and partnerships. This report presents a compelling and vibrant vision of the future of Earth science research.
