Annually, the EarthScope Consortium, in collaboration with the community, facilitates a series of short courses focused on enhancing the use of the GAGE and SAGE facility tools and data streams. These courses are for a wide variety of audiences including researchers who want to refresh their skills or explore the use of new tools, and for early career scientists such as post doctoral fellows, graduate students, and upper level undergraduates who want to learn the latest techniques to access and use the GAGE and SAGE Facility holdings.
2023 Short Courses
GNSS Interferometric Reflectometry (GNSS-IR): Software and Environmental Sensing
May 1-4, 2023 (2 hours each day)
GNSS-IR is a method for estimating environmental parameters using data from geodetic-quality GNSS sites. It is used to measure changing conditions below a GNSS antenna such as snow depth, soil moisture, and water levels.
Primary Audience: Graduate students, and postdocs from the Earth Sciences
Secondary Audience: Cryosphere scientists, Hydrologists, Coastal oceanographers, etc.
Seismology Skill Building Workshop
June 5 – August 25, 2023 – Semi Self-Paced
Designed as an ~70 hour online course for undergraduates, recent graduates, and graduate students regardless of major to build scientific computing and computational thinking skills while working with seismic data.
