Attendees at the 2019 SSA Annual Meeting have an opportunity to learn a better way to access, analyze and interpret geodetic data at the “Measuring Fault Parameters and Slip from Geodetic Imaging Data using GeoGateway Online Tools” workshop, held Tuesday, 23 April from 1–5 p.m.
GeoGateway – a system of online tools including InSAR data from NASA’s airborne UAVSAR and GPS – brings geodetic data to an easy-to-use web-based platform.
Led by Andrea Donnellan (Jet Propulsion Laboratory), Lisa Grant Ludwig (University of California, Irvine) and John Rundle (University of California, Davis), the workshop provides an overview of geodetic imaging, as well as a hands-on look at GeoGateway’s online tools.
“This workshop will enable participants to access a variety of data analysis tools for earthquakes that were previously accessible only by highly experienced data analysts,” says Rundle. “It will let casual users fully benefit from technology and research for their own projects.”
Attendees will learn how GeoGateway lets geoscience researchers measure moment magnitude, use UAVSAR data, estimate fault slip, use GPS tools to calculate velocity, displacements and offsets and more.
“There is a steep learning curve to analyzing and interpreting geodetic imaging data,” says Donnellan. “The goal of GeoGateway and this workshop is to provide users with an intuitive interface for accessing, understanding and combining crustal deformation measurements from InSAR and GNSS with geologic fault and seismicity data.”
The workshop is limited to 25 people. Registration fees are $25 for SSA Members, $15 for SSA Student Members and $50 for non-members. Sign up to attend the meeting when you register for the 2019 SSA Annual Meeting.
