Registration is open for the InTeGrate-GETSI Webinar: Addressing Earthquake Hazards with LiDAR, GPS, and InSAR in Upper-level Undergraduate Courses-- Thursday, April 13

The cutting edge methods of GPS, LiDAR, and InSAR are seldom taught in undergraduate courses, but are essential tools for researchers studying the active Earth. This webinar will present two modules intended for upper-level geoscience courses that feature learning about active tectonics through these geodetic methods and motivated by improved societal preparedness for earthquakes.

InTeGrate-GETSI webinar:
Addressing Earthquake Hazards with LiDAR, GPS, and InSAR in Upper-level Undergraduate Courses <http://serc.carleton.edu/integrate/workshops/webinars/2016_2017/earthquake_hazards/index.html>

Thursday, April 13
10 a.m. (PT) // 11 a.m. (MT) // 12 p.m. (CT) // 1 p.m. (ET)

Registration <http://serc.carleton.edu/integrate/workshops/webinars/2016_2017/earthquake_hazards/registration.html> deadline is Tuesday, April 11

GEodesy Tools for Societal Issues (GETSI) <http://serc.carleton.edu/getsi/index.html> collection editor, Beth Pratt-Sitaula, will discuss the value in teaching geoscience through the lens of societal challenges. Author Phil Resor will discuss the module GPS, Strain, and Earthquakes which features using ongoing deformation as measured by GPS stations to study crustal strain and earthquake hazards and risk. Gareth Funning will describe the module Imaging Active Tectonics which uses LiDAR and InSAR to better identify active landforms and characterize recent earthquakes in order to assess earthquake risks, even those far from population centers.

At the end of this webinar, participants will have:

better awareness of ways to integrate GPS, LiDAR, and InSAR data and quantitative skills into undergraduate majors-level courses
strategies to engage students in geoscience learning through community-level earthquake preparedness planning
greater familiarity with GETSI (GEodesy Tools for Societal Issues) teaching resources and principles
connections to new colleagues engaged in this work
GETSI is an NSF-funded collaborative project between UNAVCO, Indiana University, and Mt San Antonio College. This webinar is part of joint dissemination effort with the InTeGrate Project <http://serc.carleton.edu/integrate>.
