EARTH and University Library Host Seismology Short Course

August 1, 2014

The Northwestern Earth and Planetary Sciences Department in collaboration with the Northwestern University Library is hosting the sixth annual IRIS-EarthScope "USArray Data Processing and Analysis for the next generation of seismologists" short course in early August. The primary goal of the course is to provide training in the foundations of seismic data processing for young scientists, and to inspire the participants to become future leaders in developing more effective ways to handle data from large seismic datasets, such as the USArray.

Instructors include graduate student Emily Wolin, former intern Lay Kuan Loh, and Professor Suzan van der Lee from Northwestern. They are joined by Mike Brudzinski (Miami U.), Meghan Miller and Rob Porritt (USC), Gary Pavlis (IU), Lee Liberty (BSU) and Andy Frassetto, Danielle Sumy, George Slad, and Chad Trabant (all from IRIS).

Twenty-four graduate students from nearly as many universities all across the US will participate and work together on student projects. The group will present their project results on Friday.
