Input Needed: National Academies CORES study

The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine is conducting a study on Catalyzing Opportunities for Research in the Earth Sciences (CORES) for the Division of Earth Sciences at the National Science Foundation and wants to hear from you

The purpose of the CORES study is to (1) identify a concise set of high-priority scientific questions for the next decade, (2) assess infrastructure needed to address these questions, and (3) determine opportunities for greater collaboration with other NSF divisions and directorates, federal agencies, and domestic and international partners.


The CORES committee strongly feels that this study must be informed by vigorous community input from across the entire spectrum of Earth sciences. One of the ways we are soliciting input is through a questionnaire assessing your ideas about upcoming research priorities:


The CORES site ( provides more detailed information on the study charge, as well as a complete list of committee members.  Please go to the website and contribute your comments regarding the top Earth science priorities for the next decade. The deadline to submit comments is March 1, 2019. Thank you!
