Dear Colleagues,

Please note the following SSA 2018 session which seeks contributions regarding the field and data center operations of real-time GNSS networks.
The submission deadline for abstracts is 24 January 2018 ( )

Kathleen Hodgkinson, Dave Mencin, Alberto Lopez and Victor Huérfano Moreno

Real-Time GNSS Network Operations
High-rate, low-latency GNSS data is becoming an integral part of Early Earthquake and Tsunami Warning systems plus an important feature of volcano and landslide monitoring projects. It is also now an essential component in meteorological and atmospheric studies. In this session, we wish to provide a venue for those involved in operating critical real-time networks to discuss issues presented both in the field and at data operations centers. We welcome contributions that discuss issues such as field requirements to ensure highly reliable data flow, maintaining low-latency, high-rate data steams without overburdening communications, redundancy of data paths and the leveraging of infrastructure in existing seismic and GNSS networks. The merging of operations of GNSS and seismic networks is of particular interest. We also encourage presentations that describe the use of casters or other protocols e.g., RabbitMQ, to collect and distribute data and the computer infrastructure required to manage data operations. Other topics of interest include monitoring latency and completeness, the development of data retrieval methods to attain an archival quality data set and, assessment of noise levels in near-real-time.
