Dear Folks,
    I am writing to solicit interest in your attending a short course: "Working with Strainmeter and Tiltmeter Data: A Short Course for New Users.  After meager advertising through fall and spring AGU, the EarthScope meeting, and word-of-mouth, the upcoming July 13-15 workshop is near capacity.  I would like to plan for the future to see if we have enough interest to schedule a second workshop later this year.  The text of the email with logistics and outline of the course is listed below.

If you are interested in attending July 13-15 in Boulder, please let me know by Thursday, June 16 or by return email.  We have to finalize our logistics.  If you are interested in attending in some to-be-determined date later this year or next, please let me know.

Susan Eriksson

Meeting Location

The meeting will be located at the UNAVCO Facility in Boulder, Colorado.
