This project has several broader impacts that are strongly tied to the proposed research: 1. Educational opportunities for geoscience students, especially under-represented students particularly those funded by the NSF OEDG program. At the undergraduate level, we will have a summer intern program run by UAF that will match targeted students with one of the project PIs. The students may be involved in fieldwork, lab work, or computer analysis. We envision two to three students involved each year. We will also target underrepresented students, particularly Latin students for participation in the project as graduate students. 2. International impact. This project is a collaborative effort between scientists from the Bolivia- Chile-Argentina region and the US, Canada and UK, and will help strengthen ties between the scientific communities in those countries. The detailed understanding of a portion of the APMB will be of value to the entire affected region, which includes parts of three countries. In addition to being multi-national the project is also multi-institutional, which offers cross-fertilization between scientists, students, funding agencies, and scientific disciplines. 3. Public outreach will include a project web site and presentations to schools and community events near each of the involved institutions. At Cornell, our educational partner is the Paleontological Research Institute (PRI; http://www.priweb.org), which has over 40,000 visitors a year. Similarly, UAF has a relationship with the Museum of the North, which is visited by over 150,000 people per year. K-12 programs at OSU and the VolcanWorld website (http://volcano.oregonstate.edu) have provided very effective outreach for previous NSF projects and will be included here. 4. Local impact in Bolivia. The group of international scientists converging on the village near Uturuncu (called Quetena) is bound to make an impression, and we will undertake several activities to make sure that the impact is positive. 5. Data access. In terms of cyber infrastructure and data management we will make our seismic, magnetotelluric, and geodetic data available to other scientists via IRIS DMC and UNAVCO.
