Greg Tucker earned a Bachelor's degree in Anthropology from Brown University in 1988. After working as a field archaeologist, he attended Penn State University, receiving his Ph.D. in Geosciences in 1996. After spending time as a postdoctoral research associate in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at MIT, he served on the faculty of the School of Geography and the Environment at Oxford University from 2000 to 2003. In 2004 he joined the Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences and the Department of Geological Sciences at the University of Colorado. His current research focuses on the dynamics of drainage basin evolution and the development and testing of numerical landscape evolution models. He is also interested in the statistical-physics underpinnings of sediment transport on hillslopes and in channels. He is an associate editor for the Journal of Geophysical Research--Earth Surface and serves on the editorial board of Earth Surface Processes and Landforms.

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.
