Course Information | Strainmeter Short Course

Date: Monday, March 26, 2018 from 9:00am - 5:00pm
Location: Omni Interlocken Resort
Birch Room

Registration for this Short Course is through the 2018 UNAVCO Science Workshop page.

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. 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 registration page and you will be contacted in mid-February with more details.
