EarthScope is a program of the National Science Foundation (NSF) that has deployed thousands of seismic, GPS, and other geophysical instruments to study the structure and evolution of the North American continent and the processes that cause earthquakes and volcanic eruptions. It involves collaboration between scientists, educators, policy makers, and the public to learn about and apply exciting scientific discoveries as they are made. EarthScope comprises three interlinking components: 1) the EarthScope Facility operated by the UNAVCO and IRIS consortia, 2) a research program that supports PI-led investigations, and 3) an investigator community, coordinated by an academic EarthScope National Office, that actively participates in science planning, research, and facility governance.
