The following FAQs are presented for reference for new UNAVCO PIs, researchers, and students to provide an overview of resources, service and support available through the GAGE Facility.
The UNAVCO community is engaged in geodetic research which includes earthquake processes, mantle properties, active magmatic systems, plate boundary zone deformation, intraplate deformation, glacial isostatic adjustment, global geodesy and plate tectonics, global change, polar processes, hydrogeodesy, and atmospheric sciences.
To apply for institutional membership, please contact email@example.com. More information about membership is available here.
See Board of Directors.
UNAVCO can help with technical planning and budgeting for proposals involving GNSS, TLS, InSAR, airborne LIDAR and geochronology services.
Salaries of UNAVCO staff members are provided by NSF and NASA for participation in supported projects and need not be budgeted for in the PIs budget. Travel, shipping, non-pool equipment and other related project costs are paid for by the PI. Funds for these are made available through subaward or through direct transfer from NSF. Authorized users may use pool equipment for free. Access to archive and related services is free. Where equipment purchases are required, substantial discounts are available on commonly used items through pre negotiated arrangements.
Yes, we provide extensive guidelines for PIs, including best practice information for GPS/GNSS Campaign & Kinematic surveys and for GPS/GNSS Permanent Station support, both of which include information about equipment and field procedures for high precision GNSS applications.
UNAVCO provides user training in all aspects of high precision GNSS data collection. This is typically provided in conjunction with support for specific projects, but occasionally, general training sessions are provided.
