2019 UNAVCO Highlights
Title Date
The Myrtle Grove Subsidence Superstation

How do you install a GPS station in a marsh? How about three all in the same place? Installation of the Myrtle Grove subsidence superstation began in August 2016, but planning began well beforehand. The array of three co-located stations in Myrtle Grove, Louisiana, posed particular challenges, as the instruments were installed in a coastal marsh—in which the installation team would sink up to their hips in mud and water.

Final Celebration of the Successes of EarthScope

Scientists, community members, National Science Foundation (NSF) staff and representatives of federal agencies gathered in Washington, D.C. May 21-22 to celebrate the successes of EarthScope. EarthScope was an NSF program designed to study the structure and evolution of the North American continent and the processes that cause earthquakes and volcanic eruptions.

Subduction Below Extreme Sedimentation, Part 2 - Myanmar

Continuing previous work in Bangladesh, Michael Steckler (LDEO) and Keith Williams (UNAVCO) arrived back in Myanmar in late October of 2018 to begin the installation of five additional cGPS sites with collaborators. The larger project entails installation of a transect of cGPS stations and seismometers spanning Bangladesh, India, and Myanmar.

Updates on a Polar Network: ANET in the 2018-19 Season POLENET, a multiyear NSF-funded project, has entered its third award phase. The team for the 2018-19 Antarctic season, composed of six people, left McMurdo station for the remote field camp of WAIS Divide on December 13th, 2018. During the six-week deployment, the team installed five new GPS stations on the coast of Marie Byrd Land.

CHORDS Provides Next Generation Infrastructure for Real-time Geoscience Data Services The EarthCube Cloud-Hosted Real-time Data Services for the Geosciences (CHORDS) project aims to simplify access to real-time geoscience data. Through CHORDS portals, scientists can visualize data streams: (1) in samples/min/hour/day, (2) as simple time-series, and (3) via the time-series visualization software Grafana for real-time time-series analysis.

Accessible Earth: Innovative Field Course Increases Options and Accessibility to Geoscience Current trends in US demographics, rising costs of higher education, and hurdles to entry and retention of first-generation students seriously threaten our ability to mitigate future workforce shortages across STEM fields, with geosciences among the least diverse and most at risk. At the same time, it is widely recognized that the geoscience curriculum must be modernized to better prepare the next generation to utilize geoscience data streams to maximally benefit society and ensure a sustainable future.

Studying a Moving Target: Tracking Cryoconite Holes on Canada Glacier Researchers from University of Colorado and Portland State University are using cryoconite holes on Canada Glacier, located in the McMurdo Dry Valleys, to study microbial communities in their natural environment. Cryoconite holes start as small, dirt-filled depressions on the ice surface that melt into the ice, creating a pool of water capped by ice. Within the water, microbial life thrive in summer despite being isolated from the atmosphere and frozen every winter.
