    year at IRIS and with the cherry blossoms in Washington getting ready to bloom this seems like a good time to update Consortium Members and Affiliates on IRIS activities Please feel free to share this update with colleagues at your institution We have seen several important personnel changes at IRIS since I wrote you last Fall Kent Anderson long time GSN program manager is now managing the IRIS Portable Instrumentation program In that position Kent will also be responsible for IRIS Polar programs Justin Sweet a recent PhD from the University of Washington has been hired as a Research Associate to assist Kent in managing the PASSCAL and Polar programs Justin is working out of the PASSCAL Instrument Center in Socorro Katrin Hafner who has served as the USArray Transportable Array Operations Manager since 2007 replaced Kent as full time manager of the GSN program in January We had been rather understaffed over the past year or so within the Instrumentation Services group at IRIS so it s good to have this great team fully in place Unfortunately Jessica Lodewyk the data quality specialist in the OBSIP Management Office left IRIS at the end of March so we still have one more position to fill The beginning of a new year also marks changes in membership of IRIS governance committees We have welcomed two new members to the IRIS Board of Directors Miaki Ishii Harvard and Andy Nyblade Penn State and new chairs of the PASSCAL SC Lara Wagner DTM Instrumentation Services SC Doug Wiens Wash U Data Services SC Jim Gaherty LDEO OBSIP Oversight Committee Richard Allen Berkeley and International Development Seismology SC Jay Pulliam Baylor Thanks to all of these individuals and the other new committee members for your service to the IRIS community A table showing the membership of IRIS governance committees is available on the IRIS website at http www iris edu hq about iris governance As I mentioned in my letter last Fall job number one for me is successfully executing SAGE and the other awards we are currently managing NSF guidance to us is that the SAGE Year 3 budget for the year beginning October 1 2015 will be at the same level as SAGE Years 1 and 2 This is 17 5 3M below what IRIS originally proposed for the third year of SAGE In 2014 IRIS governance committees developed rescoping plans assuming a flat budget and described the impacts of these reduced budgets on their programs IRIS management and the Standing Committees are working hard to mitigate these impacts but with reductions of this magnitude there will be significant impacts on IRIS staffing levels and the services and operations IRIS can support There is however some room for optimism The President s FY2016 NSF budget request includes a 3 increase for SAGE and a one time increase of 4 9M in the USGS budget for installation of a new generation of ultra broadband borehole sensors for the GSN While it will probably
