Pre-course preparation

Dear Participants,
Thank you for registering for the 2017 Strainmeter Short Course. Talks and class documents will be loaded on to this page for your use during and after the class.

We will be downloading and analyzing strainmeter data. To get the most out of the Short Course it would be best if you could bring a laptop with the following software installed and the files listed below. If you would like some assistance with installation please let us know.

Please contact me if you have any questions about software installation or computer needs for the class.

Thank you,
Kathleen Hodgkinson
