Hello UNAVCO community

The GEodesy Tools for Societal Issues (GETSI) project is proud to announce that the first two modules that feature geodesy data applied to critical societal topics have been published. http://serc.carleton.edu/getsi/index.html <http://serc.carleton.edu/getsi/index.html>
Changing Ice Mass and Sea Level (Intro level)
Imaging Active Tectonics with LiDAR and InSAR (Majors level)

Three more modules will be published next year and UNAVCO and community members are pursuing funding to do more in the future. Coming in 2016:
GPS, Strain, and Earthquakes (Majors)
Measuring Water Resources (Majors)
Surface Process Hazards (Intro)

Stipend opportunities for module testing
$150 - If you are interested in using one of the published modules in a course, you can receive a $150 stipend for giving feedback about how you used the materials.
$500 - If you are interested in using the beta-version “Surface Process Hazards” module in a course, collecting full student data, making suggestions for improvement, and contributing an instructor story about how the module worked in your course, please let me know.

Please contact me if you have questions about the project, have ideas for future modules, or are interested in being a module tester. I will be at the UNAVCO booth 3:30-5pm today and at the Geodesy section reception this evening.
Thank you
