In response to community requests and interest, UNAVCO provides an annual series of short courses focussed on UNAVCO tools and data streams. These courses are for current researchers who want to refresh their skills or explore the use of new tools, and for early career scientists such as post doctoral fellows, graduate students, and upper level undergraduates who want to learn the latest geodetic techniques.

    EarthScope Workshop for Interpretive Professionals in the Central Appalachian Region

    26 – 29 March, 2012
    James Madison University, Harrisonburg, Virginia

    Learn more about the EarthScope Interpreters Workshops.

    • The central Appalachian Mountain belt and environs are the legacy of a billion-year history of plate-tectonic events including one of the greatest mountain-building events in the geologic history of North America. Today these beautiful mountains are the locations of many of the best-known and most-visited National, State, and regional Parks in the nation. The Mineral Earthquake in central Virginia in 2011 serves as a reminder that the region is still geologically dynamic, and brought renewed attention to the scientific and societal implications of geological research in the eastern United States.

      EarthScope presents a four-day (beginning at noon on Monday and ending at noon on Thursday) workshop that features presentations by prominent geoscientists and interpretive professionals to help convey the story of the magnificent landscapes, geological stories, and natural hazards of the Central Appalachian Region. Participants will learn how to use basic geologic and EarthScope information and science results, and will develop and present actual interpretive programs and exhibits during the workshop. Access to digitally-archived and real-time, web-accessible geophysical data will provide a key source of information for such programs. The workshop includes a one-day field trip to Shenandoah National Park.

      Sponsored by: The EarthScope National Office (ESNO) at Arizona State University. EarthScope is funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF). The workshop is hosted by the Department of Geology and Environmental Science at James Madison University.
