The instruments and technical skills of the Center are designed to support the hydrologic sciences and engineering communities. Instruments will be made available on a first-come/first served principal. Instrument requests from funded competitive granting agencies will not be competitively reviewed within the Center, as the Center will rely upon the review process of the agencies. However, the Center does reserve the right to review the request to insure that the proposed activities are feasible and attainable with the requested resources. This approach has been successfully utilized by many scientific consortia, such as IRIS-PASSCAL and the Center will adopt this model during its first two years of operation.
Based on the concepts of fairness and availability, the following protocols will be used to schedule and accommodate instrument requests:
Application for instrument and equipment support can be made via the Instrument Request page. The Center will review all proposals for feasibility and appropriateness of instrumentation. Any disputes regarding instrumentation or access will be taken before the CAB for analysis. The CAB represents the final authority in any cases of dispute.
CTEMPs support should be acknowledged in any resulting publications using a statement similar to the below:
"We thank CTEMPs, funded by the National Science Foundation (EAR awards 1440596 and 1440506), for timely and effective provision of experimental design support, logistical support and equipment for the project."
