Science Plan Workshop in Suzdal, Russia
April 21 - April 25, 2003
At the end of April in Suzdal, Russia a major science
plan workshop was organized and conducted which substantially furthered
the development of the Northern Eurasia Earth Science Partnership Initiative
(NEESPI). Following on the formal agreement between NASA and the Russian
Academy of Sciences last October for a focused collaboration to develop
a program of research, 90 scientists met to identify and debate the critical
Earth science questions for the region of northern Eurasia. Forty-five
participants represented Russian institutions, and the other 45 representatives
were from Europe, Japan, Ukraine and the U.S. (32 reps.), including five
from NASA. Key leaders of various subgroups from the workshop will be
working during the next three months to assimilate the results into a
draft science plan, which will be formally reviewed by an independent
group of scientists in early September, 2003 and will lead to a published
NEESPI Science Plan around the first of the year.
