PBO at 2006 Fall AGU


Numerous science, facility construction, and education and outreach papers were presented at the Fall AGU meeting. As we move into year four of the construction phase of the MREFC, it is highly encouraging to see the science community using and interpreting PBO data and data products to resolve key EarthScope science goals. PBO staff participated in numerous talks and posters outlining the state of the construction and data management activities, and more importantly to garner feedback from the science community on how to improve data and information access, education and outreach, and construction processes and procedure. The following are a summary of science, education and outreach, and facility construction abstracts.
