(1.3) Establishing subcommittees consisting of lead- and co-authors for each method or topic-based chapter;

(1.4) Developing standardized or customized section(s) within each method-based chapter on modeling (inversions);

(1.5) Prospects of funding support for travel and workshop related costs;

(1.6) Next steps…
