National Conservation Training Center - USFWS
The NSF Centers for Transformative Environmental Monitoring Programs (CTEMPs) will offer an one and a quarter-day hands-on workshop on the theory, application and analysis of distributed fiber sensing. We are expanding the scope of this annual workshop to include both distributed temperature sensing (DTS) and distributed acoustic sensing (DAS).  The workshop will accommodate a wide range of practitioners, from those interested in an introduction to the methods, to those wanting to learn state of the art data processing to getting the greatest possible precision from your data. All participants will have the opportunity to work directly with a range of DTS and DAS instruments and cables designed specifically for environmental sensing. Please feel free to bring data sets.

Timing: August 1: 4-6 pm, August 2: 8:30 am - 12 pm, 1 pm - 5 pm
