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.
