(2003) as well as his PhD (2005) in Civil Engineering at the University of Texas, Austin and is currently assistant professor at the department of Civil and Environmental Engineering and associate faculty in Environmental & Sustainability Program at the University of South Carolina. His area of interest is in water resource engineering and, in particular, the application of computing and informatics to study both natural and built hydrologic systems. Jon works with graduate students and collaborators on research topics including watershed management, regional-scale hydrologic modeling, GIS in water resources, and decision support systems in water resources. His overarching goal in research is to create and apply novel computing approaches for better managining water resources.

CSDMS Executive Committee

The Executive Committee is the primary decision-making body of the CSDMS, and meets twice a year to approve the annual science plan, the semi-annual reports, the management plan, budget, partner membership, and other day-to-day issues that arise in the running of the CSDMS. The Executive Committee also develops the By-Laws and Operational Procedures, to be approved by the Steering Committee. The Executive Committee develops and implements the 5-year Strategic Plan.

The Executive Committee further:

  1. Reviews proposals from Working Groups for development that are within the priorities of the Annual Science Plan and CSDMS mission;
  2. Ensures that CSDMS develops and maintains the capability to support collaborative proposals;
  3. Reviews the ongoing CSDMS business operations through regular meetings, teleconferences, AccessGrid sessions, electronic mail, etc.
  4. Ensures scientific progress in multiple areas of landscape-basin evolution (LBE) by providing the computational infrastructure needed for improved modeling;
  5. Ensures the connection of LBE research with related scientific thrusts of scientific computing and Geoinformatics through the establishment of strategic partnerships, and
  6. Ensures transparency of governance and intellectual involvement of community via reasonable criteria for partner membership and a mechanism that allows community input.

CSDMS Steering Committee

The CSDMS Steering Committee (SC) is comprised of 8 members: 6 selected by the EC to represent the spectrum of relevant Earth science and computational disciplines, and 2 selected by Partner Membership. The cognizant NSF program officer or his/her designate, and the Executive Director or his/her designate, serve as ex officio members of the SC. During SC meetings, there may be occasions when these ex officio members would exclude themselves from discussions.

The Steering Committee meets once a year to assess the competing objectives and needs of the CSDMS; will comment on the progress of CSDMS in terms of science (including the development of working groups and partner memberships), management, outreach, and education; and will comment on and advise on revisions to the 5-year strategic plan. The Steering Committee will provide a report to the Executive Director at the close of its meeting, to which s/he will respond within two weeks.
