Acknowledgments and Disclaimer
HPWREN is an interdisciplinary and multi-institutional UCSD research and education project, created in 2000 with National Science Foundation funding by Principal Investigator Hans-Werner Braun at the San Diego Supercomputer Center, and Co-Principal Investigator Frank Vernon, a seismologist with the Scripps Institution of Oceanography's Institute of Geophysics and Planetary Physics. The startup and subsequent existence of HPWREN was funded by grants from NSF in 2000, 2004 and 2009. Following a generous approximately ten years of funding by NSF, the HPWREN's user community joined together to sustainably fund the HPWREN Backbone network to support their programmatic needs, while smaller amounts of NSF funds had continued for a multi-year transition period. With Hans-Werner Braun having retired in 2016, the project leadership has been transitioned to Frank Vernon.
