Dear Community Members:

Registration is now open for the newest offering in the UNAVCO Short Course


Getting Started with PBO Strainmeter Data

August 25-27, 2010, UNAVCO Headquarters in Boulder, Colorado 

Faculty: Evelyn Roeloffs, USGS; Kathleen Hodgkinson, UNAVCO; Duncan Agnew,
SIO; and Ryan Day (USGS, CVO)

Course Information: PBO strainmeters provide better strain resolution than
GPS and can record strain transients at periods much longer than broadband
seismometers. This workshop will begin with the basic concepts of strain and
give a background in instrumentation for monitoring crustal deformation.
This is a hands-on course. Topics covered will include, retrieving and
plotting strain data, assessing strainmeter data quality, borehole
strainmeter calibration, tidal analysis and prediction of tidal time-series.
