Consider going to this hands-on workshop, scheduled for the two days before the AGU Fall Meeting in New Orleans:
The Cutting Edge of Fiber Optics: Temperature and Acoustic Applications in Earth Science - Principles, Operation, Data Analysis, and Demonstrations.
December 9-10, 2017
Stennis Space Center, Mississippi
(Near New Orleans, before the AGU Fall Meeting)
The NSF Centers for Transformative Environmental Monitoring Programs (CTEMPs) will offer a two-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. Examples will be taken from the Ross Ice Shelf, the Dead Sea, atmospheric turbulence in Colorado, deep rock installations in Nevada, active and passive seismic monitoring and acoustic monitoring in pipes. All participants will have the opportunity to work directly with a wide range of DTS and DAS instruments, instrument manufacturers and cables designed specifically for environmental sensing. DTS and DAS manufacturers, fiber optic cable manufacturers, and CTEMPs staff will lecture and be available for consultation on special issues. Please feel free to bring data sets.
Limited to 30 participants; by order of registration
