At the end of April in Suzdal, Russia a major science plan workshop was organized and conducted which substantially furthered the development of the Northern Eurasia Earth Science Partnership Initiative (NEESPI). Following on the formal agreement between NASA and the Russian Academy of Sciences last October for a focused collaboration to develop a program of research, 90 scientists met to identify and debate the critical Earth science questions for the region of northern Eurasia. Forty-five participants represented Russian institutions, and the other 45 representatives were from Europe, Japan, Ukraine and the U.S. (32 reps.), including five from NASA. Key leaders of various subgroups from the workshop will be working during the next three months to assimilate the results into a draft science plan, which will be formally reviewed by an independent group of scientists in early September, 2003 and will lead to a published NEESPI Science Plan around the first of the year.
