Analysis of Ross Ice Shelf Broadband Seismic and GPS Array Data
A full year of continuous broadband seismometer data were recently recovered from a 34-station seismic array deployed on the Ross Ice Shelf (RIS) from Nov. 2014 - Nov. 2015 (https://scripps.ucsd.edu/centers/iceshelfvibes/). Signals observed span the frequency band from <1 mHz to 90 Hz. Setra barometer data were also collected at a 16-station linear array orthogonal to the shelf front to further establish links with environmental forcing. Additionally, 13 geodetic GPS were installed this season to record large-scale RIS motions. The GPS were co-located with the orthogonal array of seismic stations from the shelf front to 415 km southward towards the grounding zone.
The high fidelity seismic data will provide insight into ocean wave - ice shelf interactions inferred from the dynamic response of the RIS to wave-induced vibrations, including but not limited to gravity-wave-excited signal propagation characteristics through the ice shelf - water layer system, seasonal and spatial variability of wave-induced icequakes, ice shelf elastic properties and their spatial variability, and variability of the response of the ice shelf to tides. Seismic, barometer, and GPS data recorded during 2016 will be recovered during the Oct.-Nov. 2016 field season.
Recent Ph.D. graduates interested in ocean-ice shelf interactions with a seismology and/or GPS data analysis background are encouraged to apply for the 2016 Scripps Postdoctoral Fellowship described below. Experience in Antarctic field operations is a plus. Participation in 2016 field operations is expected. Additional information about potential RIS research topics can be obtained upon request or visiting the project website.

Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego in La Jolla, California, invites applications for one or more Institution-wide Postdoctoral positions in any of the major areas of research conducted at Scripps. Scripps Institution of Oceanography is one of the oldest, largest, and most important centers for marine science research in the world. Research at Scripps encompasses physical, chemical, biological, geological, and geophysical studies of the oceans, earth, and atmosphere. Scripps Postdoctoral scholars are expected to interact with existing programs, and candidates are required to contact potential mentors and identify mutual research interests prior to submitting their applications. Research activities at Scripps can be explored by viewing profiles of the Principal Investigators<https://scripps.ucsd.edu/people/faculty> at Scripps.
Candidates are required to have completed the PhD degree prior to taking up the appointment and should have received the degree no earlier than January 1, 2013. Current and former Scripps or UC San Diego Graduate Students and Postdocs are ineligible for these awards.
Awards are competitive with a major emphasis on potential for independent, creative research. The Postdoc positions are for one year, and award twelve months of salary with a minimum stipend of $58,000 plus benefits. An additional six months of support may be granted provided that the Postdoc obtains additional external support. Appointees are eligible for health insurance through UC San Diego.
The deadline for applications will be February 1, 2016, and successful candidates are expected to start before December 1, 2016. All applications, which must include two confidential letters of recommendation, and letter of support from a potential Scripps mentor, are to be submitted in electronic form, following instructions to be found here<https://scripps.ucsd.edu/postdocs/program/instructions>.
