Course Information | Working with Strainmeter Data Shortcourse

Dates and Times: Monday, March 28, 2016 from 8:00am - 5:00pm
Optional data viewing: Thurs, March, 31, 2016 from 1:00pm - 5:00pm
Location: Omni Interlocken Hotel in Broomfield, Colorado
This meeting is being held in conjunction with the
2016 UNAVCO Science Workshop
Fee: There is not a fee associated with this Workshop

  • For further information contact
  • If your research involves modeling strain transients along plate boundary faults, analyzing the evolution of Episodic Tremor and Slip signals, studying the Earth tides or strains induced by atmospheric pressure, seiches or the passage of seismic waves then you might be interested in this course. Students will learn how strainmeters work, study examples where the data were used to model strain transients, basic processing steps and how to access the strainmeter data.

    The day will be a mix of presentations and open discussion on analyzing strainmeter data. Questions and discussion of issues particular to each participants field of interest are welcome. Kathleen will also be available on Thursday, March, 31, 2016 from 1:00pm - 5:00pm, for those who would like to spend extra time looking at more data. Students are encouraged to bring their own data or examples of what they would like to work on.

    If you are interested, please sign up on the Science Workshop Registration Page and you will be contacted in mid-February with more details.
