IRIS course at the AGU Meeting in Iguassu, Brazil, August 2010 - "Managing Waveform Data and Related Metadata for Seismic Networks"
The Incorporated Research Institutions for Seismology (IRIS) and the FDSN are organizing a workshop on data management for seismological networks, co- sponsored by CERESIS and IASPEI. The goal is to enable open data sharing and exchange of ideas between networks in the Americas and to assist operators of seismic networks in the generation of metadata for their stations. We shall provide training in seismometry, data acquisition systems, digital filtering theory, quality assurance of seismological data, and how modern seismological data are used to study diverse scientific problems as well as monitoring seismicity. The primary goal of the workshop is the generation of the metadata needed to describe their networks using the Portable Data Collection Center (PDCC) application. We expect participants to come away from the workshop with all the necessary knowledge to set up and maintain their own database and to link their network to the growing global network for data access. Specific Requirements: Participants MUST be able to bring their own laptops to the workshop. Participant’s laptops will need to meet special requirements. Registration is open until April 30, 2010.more ...
