August 7-11 we will be hosting about 30 seismology PhD students from all over the US and a couple of foreign countries. The event is sponsored by IRIS and is called the USArray Data Processing Short Course.
The primary goal of this short course is to provide training in the foundations of seismic data processing for the next generation of geoscientists. Our aim is to inspire the participants to become leaders in developing more effective ways to handle data from large seismic datasets. This year’s course will focus on power methods for fetching, processing, analyzing, and visualizing data locally, specifically with the Oklahoma Wavefields data. To learn more about the Oklahoma Wavefields experiment, including how to access the dataset, head on over to www.iris.edu/wavefields. Attendees are expected to already have some experience with seismological data and scientific computing.
Participants will be selected into each short course by the program’s steering committee based on the information provided in their applications. Travel, lodging, and most meal costs for selected applicants will be covered by financial support from NSF through the "Seismological Facilities for the Advancement of Geoscience and EarthScope" award to IRIS. Please note: Selection and financial support will be focused on applicants who have not attended previous USArray short courses and are based at institutions within the U.S. International participants may also apply, but are responsible for their expenses and logistics if coming from outside the U.S. For more information and the course agenda, please visit this site: https://www.iris.edu/hq/short-courses/course/iris_usarray_advanced_short_course_2017
