The SZ4D
Implementation Plan

The SZ4D Implementation Plan has been released in the Fall 2022.

The report, built and revised upon community input, lays out the key science priorities, focused field and laboratory infrastructure, modeling and computational capability, and building equity and capacity efforts.

Acknowledgments

 

We gratefully acknowledge the intellectual contributions of the 3400 participants in SZ4D activities between 2020-2022. The generous and deep commitment of the community has built this plan during some of the most difficult years of our personal and professional lives. SZ4D efforts have been supported under NSF grants EAR-1828096, EAR-1824343 and EAR-2221947.

This document is the final report of both the SZ4D RCN and the MCS RCN, which were supported under the first two of these awards.
