UNAVCO promotes a broader understanding of Earth science. We collaborate with scientific and educational partners to increase the number and diversity of the next generation of Earth science students. UNAVCO provides many learning opportunities including: Short Courses and Workshops, Educational Resources, RESESS Research Student Internships, and Technical Training.
We provide an annual series of short courses and workshops to increase the capacity of our scientific community by using various data. These courses are aimed at current researchers who want to update their skills or branch into new areas of research, and younger scientists such as post doctoral fellows, graduate students, and upper level undergraduates.
Research Experience in the Solid Earth Science for Students (RESESS) is an undergraduate-to-graduate bridge internship program designed to increase the participation of underrepresented minorities in the Earth sciences.
UNAVCO works in collaboration with the research community to develop educational resources to communicate and teach about geodesy and applications for specific education levels from elementary to undergraduate.
Geodetic technologies and equipment are constantly changing and improving.
