IRIS-EarthScope USArray Short Course, 2013
Northwestern University, Evanston, IL

August 6th to 9th (Introductory) and August 12th to 16th (Advanced)

Northwestern University - Evanston, Illinois

The primary goal of these courses is to provide training for the next generation of young scientists in the foundations of robust methods in seismic data processing. Our aim is to inspire the participants to become future leaders in developing more effective ways to handle data from large seismic datasets, such as the USArray. Participants will be selected into each short course by the program's steering committee based on the information provided in their applications. Travel and subsistence costs for participants in the short course will be covered by financial support from IRIS through the NSF-EarthScope USArray Program.

Applications will be accepted until midnight Pacific Time, June 7, 2013.

Please contact Andy Frassetto if you have any questions or concerns.

Both short courses will consist of lectures, exercises, and group projects presented by the course organizers and several guest instructors from the IRIS community and facilities.

Introductory Course, August 6-9, 2013

Students will familiarize themselves with the basics of the unix-environment and command-line coding, a variety of seismic data access methods, and simple software tools for processing and visualizing waveform data. The course is aimed at users with limited programming experience and/or knowledge of seismology.

Advanced Course, August 12-16, 2013

Students, postdocs, and early career scientists with a good foundation in unix-systems, programming, and seismology will learn methods for obtaining, accessing, and manipulating large amounts of waveform data. The course is aimed at users who are comfortable writing programs from scratch in one or more languages.
