Just a note to let you know about an important workshop to take place at the
International Symposium on Antarctic Earth Sciences meeting in Santa 
Barbara, California in late
August.    The workshop will discuss polar instrumentation issues 
related to GPS and
Seismology.    There will also be some planning and coordination of IPY 
in Antarctica.

The workshop is from 1 - 5 pm on Sunday, August 26 which is the day 
prior to the
start of the regular ISAES meeting.    By the way, the deadline for 
abstracts to the
ISAES meeting has been extended until May 31, so you still have time to 
submit an abstract
case you have not done so already!

See you there...

*Workshop Title:**  **  *Remote Geodetic and Geophysical Observatories:  
Challenges, Successes, and Emerging Technologies for IPY
*Conveners: ** *Alessandro Capra, Reinhard Dietrich, Bjorn Johns, 
Douglas Wiens, and Larry Hothem

The workshop is focused on the IPY POLENET project which proposes to 
install geodetic, seismological, meteorological and other observatories 
in the polar region.  Key issue covered in the workshop will be the 
technological aspect of remote site installation, operation and 
communication.   Coordination of various national plans and data 
exchange protocols will also be discussed.

Principal topics:

    * remote Geodetic and Geophysical observatories
    * co-located observatories
    * power problems and solutions
    * radio and satellite communications at remote sites
    * operation of equipment and sensors in the extreme cold
    * POLENET data and metadata:  access, exchange and archiving
