2014 UNAVCO Science Workshop

The 2014 UNAVCO Science Workshop was held at the Omni Interlocken Hotel in Broomfield, Colorado, beginning on Tuesday, March 4 and ending at 5:00pm on Thursday, March 6.

See the Final Workshop Report

Thirty years ago, UNAVCO began under the auspices of CIRES at the University of Colorado to enable pooling of shared resources. At the 2014 UNAVCO Science Workshop, we will kick off a series of events to celebrate Thirty Years of Geodesy Innovation for Science. Highlights include a keynote by special guest speaker Byron Tapley, an evening Ignite session focused on the origins and key transitions in UNAVCO's history, a field trip to visit 2013 Boulder flood sites, and a space that is dedicated to various demonstrations of emerging geodetic and enabling technologies. There is also an opportunity for you to engage in our Expanding Networks through Mentoring (E-NET) Program.

Please join us for the celebration!

Six Plenary Sessions will be organized around the following crosscutting themes:

  • Coastal subsidence and sea level rise
    Chair: Geoff Blewitt (University of Nevada, Reno); Co-Chair: David Phillips (UNAVCO)
  • Large scale computing constrained by geodesy
    Chair: Louise Kellogg (UC Davis); Co Chair: Fran Boler (UNAVCO)
  • Exploiting dense geodetic data
    Chair: Mark Simons (Caltech); Co Chair: John Braun (UCAR)
  • Mixing it up: Geodesy, seismology and real-time monitoring: seismic data, GPS, InSAR, and high-rate GPS
    Chair: Zhen Liu (JPL); Co-Chair: Dave Mencin (UNAVCO)
  • Geodesy of the cryosphere
    Chair: Tonie van Dam (University of Luxembourg); Co Chair: Joe Pettit (UNAVCO)
  • Regional response to great earthquakes: Triggering, lithospheric response, post-seismic slip and other transients
    Chair: Simon McClusky (Australian National University); Co-Chair: Freddy Blume (UNAVCO)

Other Activities

Expanding Networks through Mentoring (E-NET)

The E-Net program is designed for students and early career professionals to connect with established members of the UNAVCO science community. Opportunities are available for both facilitated and free form mentoring interactions. If you are interested, please sign up on the registration page.

Strainmeter Short Course - Monday, March 3, 2014

This course was held on Monday, March 3 from 8am - 5pm and was led by Kathleen Hodgkinson (UNAVCO), Duncan Agnew (Scripps) and Evelyn Roeloffs (USGS). There is an optional data viewing class on Friday, March 7th from 8am - 12pm.

If your research involves modeling strain transients along plate boundary faults, analyzing the evolution of Episodic Tremor and Slip signals, studying the Earth tides or strains induced by atmospheric pressure, seiches or the passage of seismic waves then you might be interested in this course. Students will learn how strainmeters work, study examples where the data were used to model strain transients, basic processing steps and how to access the strainmeter data.

The day will be a mix of presentations and open discussion on analyzing strainmeter data. Questions and discussion of issues particular to each participants field of interest are welcome. Kathleen will also be available on Friday, March 7, for those who would like to spend extra time looking at more data. Students are encouraged to bring their own data or examples of what they would like to work on.

If you are interested, please sign up on the registration page.

Field Trips - Wednesday, March 5, 2014

UNAVCO has two field trips planned simultaneously. Buses will depart at 1:15pm and will arrive back at the hotel around 4:30pm

Option 1 - Fourmile Canyon Flooding Visit with a Terrestrial Laser Scanning Demonstration ($20 per person)
Option 2 - UNAVCO Facility Visit

All participants (self-supported and funded) that would like to go on the Flooding Field Trip will be required to pay the Field Trip fee of $20.00. There is no fee associated with the Tour of the UNAVCO Facility.

If you are interested, please sign up on the registration page

Hydrogeodesy Short Course - Wednesday, March 5, 2014

This short course was held on Wednesday, March 5 from 1pm - 4:30pm and was led by Kristine Larson (CU) and Shimon Wdowinksi (RSMAS). Particpants will learn to measure snow depth, sea level, and vegetation growth by using GPS and how to use InSAR to measure surface and subsurface water movements. There is no fee associated with this short course. If you are interested, please sign up on the registration page.

Ignite UNAVCO Session - Wednesday, March 5, 2014

Back by popular demand, another Ignite! UNAVCO session has been planned. In keeping with the theme of the 30 Years of Innovation for Science, the Ignite! UNAVCO session will be themed around: The origins and key transitions in UNAVCO's history.


Please contact Jaime Magliocca if you have any registration questions.
