Registration closes TODAY for the 2017 USArray Advanced Short Course, with an emphasis on the Oklahoma Wavefields project! The Short Course will take place between August 7-11th at Indiana University, in Bloomington, IN.

The primary goal of this short course is to provide training in the foundations of seismic data processing for the next generation of geoscientists. Our aim is to inspire the participants to become leaders in developing more effective ways to handle data from large seismic datasets. This year's course will focus on power methods for fetching, processing, analyzing, and visualizing data locally, specifically with the Oklahoma Wavefields data. To learn more about the Oklahoma Wavefields experiment, including how to access the dataset, head on over to www.iris.edu/wavefields. Attendees are expected to already have some experience with seismological data and scientific computing.

Participants will be selected into each short course by the program's steering committee based on the information provided in their applications. Course material is geared towards students in the later stages of grad school or in post-doctoral appointments. Please note: Selection and financial support will be focused on applicants who have not attended previous USArray short courses and are based at institutions within the U.S. International participants may also apply, but are responsible for their expenses and logistics if coming from outside the U.S. Please see the Short Course website for more details regarding travel, meal, and lodging support.
