*NEWSLETTER OCTOBER 2021*

If you attended GSA in Portland this month, hopefully you stopped by our
booth to restock on stickers and rulers. If not, you'll have another chance
at AGU in December!



Many of our summer interns are presenting at these conferences. At GSA,
Geo-Launchpad interns Madalyn Massey, Patrick Walston, and Jimmy Swift, and
RESESS intern Shams Ahmed were all able to attend in-person and present
posters. It was their first scientific conference and a great experience.
Several were enrolled in GSA's On To The Future
<https://www.geosociety.org/GSA/OTF/Home.aspx?utm_medium=email&utm_source=newsletter&utm_campaign=n3>
program, which provides funding and a mentor to help students make the most
of the conference.

You can find out more about each of these interns and their projects
through spotlight articles on our news page

Data for ShakeAlert



As a result of a new interagency agreement with the National Science
Foundation and the United States Geological Survey, UNAVCO will build and
operate the new geodetic data architecture of ShakeAlert.

Stations for ShakeAlert



With the completion of a recent Cooperative Agreement with the USGS, UNAVCO
has improved West Coast geodetic infrastructure so it can be fully
integrated into ShakeAlert.

The signal is in the noise



Why have a GPS station in the middle of a lake? Because the reflected
signal off the water can be used to measure the water level, as this study
at Lake Taupō, New Zealand shows. (And a short course

on interferometric reflectometry ran just this month!)

Haiti



UNAVCO staff also provided field support in Alaska and equipment support
for a project in Haiti. In addition to surveying benchmarks, the team in
Haiti was able to recover event data from a permanent station that had lost
its comms connection before the earthquake.
