The GAGE Facility

The GAGE Facility in Boulder, Colorado is the primary operational activity of UNAVCO and exists to support university and other research investigators in their use of geophysical sensor technology for Earth sciences research. The GAGE Facility performs this task by providing state-of-the-art instrumentation, ancillary equipment, and field engineering support for projects; installing, operating and maintaining continuous GNSS/GPS networks globally; undertaking new technology development and evaluation of commercially available products for research applications; and by archiving geophysical sensor data and data products for future applications. The GAGE Facility is funded under multi-year grants from the National Science Foundation (NSF) and National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).

What role does water play in the movement of the vast Greenland Ice Sheet? This integrated measurement and modeling project is a comprehensive investigation of this very question. Conditions at the base of the glacier will be directly measured in six boreholes drilled to the bed, with two holes at each of three sites. More

2011-12 Antarctic Season Highlights

2011-12 Antarctic Season Highlights

August 14, 2012

During the 2011-12 Antarctic field season, UNAVCO deployed 5 engineers, 88 GPS receivers, 3 Terrestrial Laser Scanner (TLS) instruments, and a large volume of ancillary equipment in support of a record 34 PI science projects. Including 2 more field engineer and 14 receiver deployments as part of the POLENET project, along with 93 receivers already installed at existing continuous GPS stations throughout Antarctica, a total of 7 UNAVCO personnel (a record), 195 GPS receivers, and 3 TLS instruments were present in Antarctica during this field season.

Continental Scale Soil Moisture Network Expansion

Continental Scale Soil Moisture Network Expansion

April 19, 2012

One continuously operating GPS station was installed In Ames, Iowa as part of the larger Continental Scale Soil Moisture monitoring network. Principal Investigators Kristine Larson and John Braun are using GPS signal-to-noise (SNR) data from these sites to estimate surface soil moisture content. More
