10 January 2017:
A training school focused on exploring glacial seismology will be held from 11-17 June 2017 on the campus of Colorado State University, Fort Collins, Colorado, USA. The programme will include lectures and practical exercises aimed at current and emergent seismological studies of glacial dynamics, structure, seismogenic processes, and seismic observables. While primarily aimed at graduate students and early-career scientists, all interested parties are encouraged to apply regardless of career or experience level. There is no registration fee, and participants will be provided with food and lodging for the duration of the training school. Funding for additional travel expenses, including airfare, may also be available for both US and non-US participants.
Financial support for the training school is provided by the National Science Foundation (NSF) through the Antarctica Network (ANET) component of the Polar Earth Observing Network (POLENET) project and by the Scientific Community on Antarctic Research (SCAR) through the Solid Earth Responses and influences on Cryospheric Evolution (SERCE) programme.
The deadline to apply is 31 January 2017. For more information on the school and to apply, visit www.polenet.org and click on the "Training School Information and Applications" link.
