Dear UNAVCO Community,


The line-up for this year's UNAVCO Short Course Series starts in late April.


We will have three Short Courses this year.  A brief description of the
three scheduled courses is listed below.  No registration fees are
associated with these courses.  Some financial assistance will be available
for travel (to be determined).  We have the potential for a course on
GAMIT/GLOBK processing of GPS data in the fall.  If you are interested in
this or some other short course topic please contact Susan Eriksson at
eriksson at unavco.org.

Processing and Analysis of GeoEarthscope and Other Community LiDAR
Topography Datasets 

Arizona State University, Tempe, AZ

Tuesday April 29 - Thursday May 1, 2008

Max. Number of participants is 30


LiDAR-Light, Distance, and Ranging (also Airborne Laser Swath Mapping-ALSM)
topographic data are of broad interest to earth scientists. Many datasets
are or will be available freely to the scientific community, especially for
fault systems in the western United States via the GeoEarthscope project.
These data have exciting and powerful applications in geomorphology, active
tectonics, and geoscience education. Participants in this course will learn
about LiDAR technology, access to publicly available datasets, software and
hardware considerations for working with the data, data processing (raw or
classified point clouds, digital elevation models, other derived products),
and approaches for analyzing the data to answer their research questions. 


Faculty: Chris Crosby, GEON Project, SDSC; Ramon Arrowsmith, Arizona State
University and David Phillips, UNAVCO



Working with Strainmeter and Tiltmeter Data: A Short Course for New Users

UNAVCO, Boulder, Colorado

Tuesday June10 - Thursday June 12, 2008

Max. Number of participants is 30


This 2.5 day workshop will cover the main topics involved in processing
strainmeter data with the purpose to help make EarthScope data useful to a
broad scientific audience. The target audience is graduate students and
practicing scientists interested in studying plate boundary, earthquake, and
volcano deformation. 


Faculty: Kathleen Hodgkinson, UNAVCO; Evelyn Roeloffs, USGS and Duncan
Agnew, University of California, San Diego



InSAR:  An introduction to Processing and Applications for Geoscientists 

UNAVCO, Boulder, Colorado

Monday June 16 - Wednesday June 18, 2008

Max. Number of participants is 30


InSAR (Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar) is a powerful tool for
measuring Earth surface deformation due to earthquakes, volcanic unrest,
ground water migration, and anthropogenic activity. InSAR is also being
increasingly used in studies of cryosphere (motion of glaciers and ice
sheets) and atmosphere (water content in the troposphere). New techniques
and applications of InSAR are rapidly developing, including stacking,
time-series analysis of surface deformation, ScanSAR, polarimetric InSAR,
and along-track interferometry.  A three day workshop will introduce InSAR
processing and applications to new users.  If you have considered using
InSAR data and imagery in your research or want to learn more about how to
apply InSAR to new areas of research, this workshop is for you.  The
workshop includes an overview of the technology and its application to Earth
Science, an introduction to a common processing package, and an overview of
different processing packages.
