Strainmeters provide better strain resolution than GPS and can record strain transients at periods much longer than broadband seismometers. This workshop will describe how strainmeters work, present examples of tectonic strain transients recorded by PBO strainmeters, and outline how to access and work with the data. This 3-day workshop will cover the main topics involved in processing strainmeter data with the purpose to help make strainmeter data useful to a broad scientific audience. This will be a hands-on workshop, we will work through the steps required to access, process and isolate tectonic signals in the data using data sets from the Plate Boundary Observatory in the western US and strainmeters recently installed in Turkey. We encourage attendees to bring other strain data sets they might also be interested in working on and welcome questions particular to that data set.
