2018 UNAVCO Highlights
Title Date
Monitoring a Shifting Earth … In Seattle The UNAVCO interactive science exhibit, Monitoring a Shifting Earth, is now on display at the Pacific Science Center in Seattle, Washington. PSC receives more than 1 million visitors a year; a significant portion of these visitors are expected to also view the UNAVCO exhibit. This exhibit raises public awareness about earthquake and tsunami hazards of the Pacific Northwest and the geodetic technologies used to measure and monitor them.

Data Event Response to the August 12, 2018 M 6.4 Earthquake 84km SW of Kaktovik, Alaska Signals from this event were recorded by 16 GPS/GNSS stations operated by UNAVCO that were streaming high rate (1-sps / 1 Hz) data in real time (Figures 2 and 3). These data allowed peak ground displacements (PGD) to be calculated automatically from the displacement traces within seconds of the earthquake (Figure 3).

Supporting Early Career Scientists as Educators in Geophysics and Geosciences Eight graduate students attended the Earth Educators' Rendezvous (EER) at the University of Kansas 15 – 20 July, 2018 with support from the GAGE facility. The EER is a conference sponsored by the National Association of Geoscience Teachers (NAGT) focused on supporting educators of all disciplines related to the earth, atmosphere and ocean. In it’s fourth year, the EER draws over 200 educators from universities, two-year colleges, and K-12 institutions.

Maintenance of Continuous GPS Stations in Panama Over two weeks in April 2018, a UNAVCO field engineer traveled with UNAVCO collaborators throughout much of Panama to service previously installed continuous GPS stations (cGPS), including relocation of one station, and the relocation of a GPS antenna at another. This was part of an ongoing project to investigate the complex interactions between the Caribbean, Cocos, and Nazca plates.

Community Event Response to the May 2018 Kīlauea Volcano, Hawai’i Eruption Activity at Kīlauea Volcano on the Big Island of Hawai’i has recently increased. Starting on Monday, April 30, 2018, magma beneath Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō drained and triggered a collapse of the crater floor. Within hours, earthquakes began migrating east of Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō, signaling an intrusion of magma along the middle and lower East Rift Zone. A new eruption commenced in the Leilani Estates subdivision in the lower East Rift Zone on May 3, 2018, following days of increased earthquake activity and ground deformation.

The 2018 UNAVCO Science Workshop: Geodesy Advancing Geosciences and EarthScope: Applications for Science and Society The 2018 UNAVCO Community Science Workshop was held 27-29 March 2018 in Broomfield, Colorado. The UNAVCO Science Workshop provides an opportunity for the UNAVCO community to share their latest science, UNAVCO staff to receive input from the scientific community, and for staff to update the scientific community on available resources. Over 100 university researchers gathered along with federal agency representatives, private industry, and facility staff.

The NASA Space Geodesy Project - An Update NASA’s Space Geodesy Project (SGP) was initiated in order to develop and maintain a global network of next-generation space geodetic observing instruments. Core sites around the globe will use three or four of the primary space-geodetic techniques: Very Long Baseline Interferometry (VLBI), Satellite Laser Ranging (SLR), Doppler Orbitography by Radiopositioning Integrated on Satellite (DORIS), and the Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS).

Data Event Response to the February 16, 2018 M7.2 Earthquake 37km NE of Pinotepa, Mexico Signals from this event were recorded by 23 GPS/GNSS stations operated by UNAVCO, UNAM and collaborators that were streaming high rate (1-sps / 1 Hz) data in real time (Figures 2 and 3). These data allowed peak ground displacements (PGD) to be calculated automatically from the displacement traces within seconds of the earthquake (Figure 3). Note: figures and findings are preliminary and subject to revision.

Data Event Response to the January 23, 2018 M 7.9 Earthquake 280km SE of Kodiak, Alaska Signals from this event were recorded by 16 UNAVCO GPS stations that were streaming high rate (1-sps / 1 Hz) data in real time (Figures 3 and 4). These data allowed peak ground displacements (PGD) to be calculated automatically from the displacement traces within seconds of the earthquake (Figure 3), with a magnitude derived from inverting the PGDs of M7.8. Note: figures and findings are preliminary and subject to revision.
