2017 Glacial Seismology Training School

11-17 June 2017
Fort Collins, Colorado, USA


A training school focused on exploring glacial seismology was held from 11-17 June 2017 on the campus of Colorado State University, Fort Collins, Colorado, USA. The program included lectures and practical exercises aimed at current and emergent seismological studies of glacial dynamics, structure, seismogenic processes, and seismic observables. Students participated in exercises utilizing freely available seismological software and data, and had the opportunity to spend one-on-one time with leading researchers in the emerging glaciological seismology community.
