EarthScope is a new earth-science initiative to dramatically improve our understanding of the dynamics and evolution of the North American continent through an unprecedented exploration of its three-dimensional structure at continental scales. EarthScope will use the North American continent as a natural laboratory in which new observations from cutting-edge land and space-based technologies will image the interior at high resolution and measure deformation in real time at continental scales. By integrating complementary geophysical, geochemical, and geologic data, EarthScope will bring together the remarkable advances made in these sciences to provide a comprehensive time-integrated picture of continental structure and evolution, links...
