August 25 - 27, 2010
UNAVCO, 6350 Nautilus Drive, Boulder, Colorado
Course will begin at 9 am on Wednesday, August 25th and will end at noon on Friday, August 27th.
PBO strainmeters provide better strain resolution than GPS and can record strain transients at periods much longer than broadband seismometers. This workshop will begin with the basic concepts of strain and give a background in instrumentation for monitoring crustal deformation. This is a hands-on course. Topics covered will include, retrieving and plotting strain data, assessing strainmeter data quality, borehole strainmeter calibration, tidal analysis and prediction of tidal time-series.
