Two GPS Short Courses Announced
There will be two GPS processing workshops based on the GAMIT/GLOBK software
suite offered in the first part of 2011 as part of the UNAVCO Short Course Series.
14-18 March in Lima, Peru. This workshop is organized by Instituto Geofisico del
Peru (IGP) and Universidad Nacional Mayor de San Marcos (UNMSM) and will cover
static processing of both continuous and survey-mode measurements: defining
global, regional, and local reference frames; temporal and spatial filtering of
time series; modeling tropospheric, antenna, and loading effects in height
estimates; combining solutions; handling step-displacements due to earthquakes
and instrument changes; and developing an error model for velocity estimates.
There will be an introduction to modeling crustal deformation but no hands-on
work with specific software. The workshop will be taught by Bob King, Jean-Mathieu
Nocquet, Edmundo Norabuena, Francis Bondoux, and Hugo Perfettini. There is no fee
but participants will be responsible for their own travel and living expenses.
26-27 April at UNAVCO in Boulder, Colorado. The workshop will taught by Tom Herring
and feature kinematic processing using TRACK and it's real-time counterpart TrackRT.
The track portion will focus on both moving object analyses such as precise aircraft
trajectories and slower movements such as ice streams and ocean buoys, and will also
examine strategies for observing seismic surface waves. The trackRT portion will
focus on installation requirements, command file tuning, and interactions with trackRT
while it is running. Grants to assist students with travel expenses may be available.
The format for both workshops will be a combination of lecture, discussion, and
tutoring. Participants should have a reasonable knowledge of GPS theory and Unix
and have used the software enough to be proficient in standard processing. Tutoring
will be based on data sets participants bring on their own laptops. To register for
Lima, send email to Bob King at rwk at chandler.mit indicating your organization and
experience with the software. For Boulder, look for registration information at
http://www.unavco.org/edu_outreach/shortcourses.html. Both courses will be limited
to 20 participants.
