2017 Glacial Seismology Training School


11-17 June 2017
Fort Collins, Colorado, USA


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 program will include lectures and practical exercises aimed at current and emergent seismological study of glacial dynamics, structure, seismogenic processes, and seismic observables. Students will participate in exercises utilizing freely available seismological software and data, and will have the opportunity to spend one-on-one time with leading researchers in the emerging glaciological seismology community.

Who is eligible to enroll?

This course is designed for scientists engaging in seismological research in glaciated regions. While primarily aimed at graduate students and early career scientists, all interested parties are encouraged to apply regardless of career or experience level. A basic introduction to the fundamentals and applications of glacial seismology will be included, and no previous seismological or glaciological research experience is required.

How do I apply?

Applications are closed as of 31 January, 2017. Thank you to everyone who has shown interest in the Training School. We had over 75 applicants! We have completed our first round of selections, and acceptance letters will be sent out soon.

Financial Support

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, by the Scientific Community on Antarctic Research (SCAR) through the Solid Earth Responses and influences on Cryospheric Evolution (SERCE) program, by the International Glaciological Society (IGS), and by the International Association of Cryospheric Sciences (IACS) of the International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics (IUGG).

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.
