Dear Friends,

ISTI's 2022 AQMS Online course can help anyone setting up, managing,
tuning, or developing for an AQMS system.


+ What is AQMS?

AQMS is the ANSS Quake Monitoring System which is a 100% open source
wrapper around Earthworm involving a Postgres database. AQMS can be
used for recalculation of earthquake hypocenters and magnitudes using
an advanced Graphical User Interface (GUI) known as Jiggle. All that
is needed to run AQMS now is a working Earthworm system and a Linux
server. Learn more about AQMS uses on the class page:

+ What will you learn?

In the course, we will be providing an expert’s insight into the
system. You will learn tricks and tips from our decades of experience
operating and programming Earthworm and AQMS. You will learn how to
tune automatic earthquake detection with the latest release of

We encourage you to sign up as soon as possible due to a limited class
size. You can do this by completing our short registration/contact

+ When:
Date: 28 February - 4 March (5 days at 4hrs/day)

Time: TBD. To the best of our ability, class times are determined once
students register so as to take into consideration attendee time

Schedule: (5 days) via 4-hour Zoom sessions, times TBD.

+ Where:
Online. (a link will be sent in advance to join the class).


+ Content:

The immersive hands-on course will cover:

* real-time AQMS integration from an Earthworm system
* rapid magnitudes and amplitudes from AQMS
* metadata loading and use by AQMS – StationXML and Dataless (we will
not cover SIS or PDCC for creation of metadata)
* data archiving modules for events and subnet triggers
* alarming – how AQMS sends out notifications and PDL injections
* post-processing with AQMS – considerations for Jiggle use and tips

The 4-hour course days allows students to attend to other work the
other half of the day, and to not be sitting with a headset in their
ear for 8 hours straight! And it would also mean students on the other
side of the world would only have 4 late night hours.

Full description:

+ Format:
The course will be taught live by three expert instructors in an
online video conference format using Zoom. We will share screens to
deliver PowerPoint presentations on one screen and show running and
configuring AQMS on another screen. If students need assistance, they
can share their screens, allowing instructors while the whole class
benefits from watching the fix. (Breakout rooms are also used for
individual help.)

+ Equipment:
It is suggested to have a computer with two displays to get the most
out of the course

+ Social Opportunity:
There will likely be scheduled some optional social online meetings
before or after the course so that attendees can get to know attendees
from other organizations and share related or unrelated topics.
