Mark Behn is an Associate Scientist at the Department of Geology & Geophysics at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI). Mark received his PhD in 2002 at MIT/WHOI in Marine Geology and Geophysics. He uses geodynamic models to quantify the behavior of tectonic and magmatic systems in marine and terrestrial environments. His primary research interests are in Geodynamics and geophysics; dynamics of faulting and magma injection at mid-ocean ridges; seismic anisotropy and imaging of sub-asthenospheric mantle flow; rheology and mechanical behavior of oceanic transform faults; seismic and crustal structure of volcanic arcs; ice-sheet dynamics; and computational geodynamic modeling. Mark served as a steering committee member on NSF MARGINS AND GeoPRISMS program, and is still heavily involved in GeoPRISMS.

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.
