Major Projects

UNAVCO collaborates with other institutions on a variety of projects. Some of the projects fund staff at the GAGE Facility and have their own Web pages within the UNAVCO Web site. Others are mainly external to the UNAVCO Web site and are referenced here.

Topics

EarthScope - Plate Boundary Observatory — (PBO) is a component of the EarthScope project that precisely measures Earth deformation resulting from the constant motion of the Pacific and North American tectonic plates in the western United States.

NASA Support — UNAVCO helps support NASA's Global GPS Network (GGN) and activities of the International GNSS Services (IGS) Central Bureau.

COCONet - Caribbean Network — (Continuously Operating Caribbean GPS/GNSS Observational Network) is an international geoscience community project to develop Caribbean-wide GPS/GNSS observations for geophysical and atmospheric hazard studies in the Caribbean region.

TLALOCNet - Mexico Network — (Mexican GPS-Met Observational Network) is an international geoscience community project to develop Mexico-wide GPS observations for geophysical and atmospheric hazard studies in Mexico— Mexico Network.

POLENET - Polar Observations — is a network that improves geophysical observations across the Earth's polar regions and provides a legacy of observational infrastructure to enable new insights into the interaction between the atmosphere, oceans, polar ice sheets and the Earth's crust and mantle.

LARISSA - Larsen Ice Shelf — is an NSF-funded initiative that brings an international, interdisciplinary team together to study the environmental change in Antarctica's Larsen Ice Shelf System and its global change implications.

GSAC (Geodesy Seamless Archive Center) — is a free, open-source software package that provides web services at geoscience data repositories for discovery, sharing, and access to geodetic data and metadata associated with site-located instruments.

RESESS -Student Interns — (Research Experiences in Solid Earth Science for Students) is an established and successful program for multi-year summer research internships for Earth science undergraduates from populations underrepresented in science.

GEodesy Tools for Societal Issues (GETSI) develops teaching resources for engaging undergraduate students in addressing societally important Earth science questions through the use of geodetic data.
