COMPRES, the Consortium for Materials Properties Research in Earth Sciences is a community-based consortium whose goal is to enable Earth Science researchers to conduct the next generation of high-pressure science on world-class equipment and facilities. It facilitates the operation of beam lines, the development of new technologies for high pressure research, and advocates for science and educational programs to the various funding

Recently, NSF has released a proposal solicitation for a new organization for management of synchrotron-based analytical capabilities for Earth and Environmental Sciences research and training.
COMPRES is working with the larger Geoscience community to create a new and innovative organization in response to this call. More information about this effort can be found here.
