Synchrotron Earth & Environmental Science
News and Announcements
September 1, 2023

The National Science Foundation Division of Earth Sciences has for many years supported a portfolio of synchrotron beamlines and related support facilities and organizations. These included the Consortium for Materials Properties Research in Earth Sciences (COMPRES) and GeoSoilEnviroCARS (GSECARS). On September 1, 2023, SEES became the single point of management for these NSF-supported facilities, continuing all operations of GSECARS and former COMPRES beamlines while also providing new and expanded support for beamlines highlighting applications in environmental science, low temperature geochemistry, and rock deformation studies. The integration of the beamline operations into a single organization will improve the user experience and optimize development of these user facilities.
