2016 UNAVCO Science Workshop

The 2016 UNAVCO Science Workshop will be held at the Omni Interlocken Hotel in Broomfield, Colorado, beginning on Tuesday, March 29 and ending at 12:00pm on Thursday, March 31.


Geodesy is fueling discoveries in increasingly diverse disciplines as recent key findings span the Earth’s cryosphere, lithosphere, hydrosphere, ionosphere, and atmosphere. At the 2016 UNAVCO Science Workshop, we will explore how geodesy is enabling researchers to quantify processes that connect these spheres and tackle grand challenges in Earth Science. Highlights include a keynote presentation, by MIT Professor, Vice President for Research, and Solar System geodesist Maria Zuber, an evening Ignite! UNAVCO session that tasks young researchers with envisioning the future of geodesy, demonstrations of emerging tools and technologies, and a field trip to experience a charismatic chapter of Earth history (dinosaurs!). During the meeting, several talks will highlight UNAVCO education and outreach endeavors, and there will also be an opportunity for attendees to mentor student and early career geodesists by participating in our Expanding Networks through Mentoring (ENET) Program.

Please join us and see what’s next!

Five Plenary Sessions will be organized around the following crosscutting themes:

    Chair: John Braun (UCAR); Co-Chair: Henry Berglund (UNAVCO)
  • CRYO
    Chair: Tonie van Dam (University of Luxembourg); Co-Chair: Joe Pettit (UNAVCO)
    Chair: Shimon Wdowinski (University of Miami, RSMAS); Co-Chair: Chuck Meertens (UNAVCO)
    Chair: Thorsten Becker (Universtiy of Southern California); Co-Chairs: Bridget Smith-Konter (University of Hawaii), Christine Puskas (UNAVCO)
