The Plate Boundary Observatory (PBO) is a directorate of UNAVCO, subject to the bylaws and governing structure of its parent organization. UNAVCO's Board of Directors has designated the PBO Standing Committee to represent PBO's scientific user community in overseeing all functions and aspects of PBO management.
The PBO Standing Committee (PBOSC) is charged with the role of advising the UNAVCO Board of Directors in overseeing all functions and all aspects of PBO management. The members of the PBOSC are appointed by, and report to, the UNAVCO Board. The PBOSC represents the PBO scientific data user community to ensure that the scientific goals of the PBO are met, to the extent possible within fiscal and other practical limits. The PBOSC meets at least three times per year to review, in detail, the progress on all aspects of PBO operations, facilities, and contracts. In particular, the PBOSC will review this data management plan and the RFPs for the Analysis Centers and Analysis Center Coordinator. The PBOSC will identify issues of concern and recommend actions to the UNAVCO Board, which will in turn advise the UNAVCO President and PBO Director.
The PBO Data Working Group (DWG) is charged with helping the PBO Data Products Manager and PBO Director to define high-level requirements and priorities for the collection, archiving and analysis of data from PBO installations, the generation of PBO data products, and the dissemination of PBO data and data products. Working Group members represent the EarthScope science user community and are appointed at the sole discretion of the PBO Director. The Working Group will meet at least annually to assess PBO data and data products and to review the PBO data management plan. After each meeting, the Working Group Chair will submit a written evaluation report to the PBO Data Products Manager and Director, which they will use in evaluating and initiating necessary changes to PBO data management systems.
PBO Standing Committee members are appointed to a 2 year term and can be reappointed.
