Short Courses

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.

See our Upcoming offerings and Past offerings below.
