Future Directions for Seafloor Geodesy

Welcome:

This website serves as the resource for information about upcoming and past events related to seafloor geodesy, primarily for the US scientific community. The goal of these activities are to inform and build an engaged and equitable seafloor geodesy community, including scientists from academic institutions, government agencies, and international partners.

Webinars and short courses:

Information on upcoming and past engagements (with links to available presentation) are here.

Instrument Pool:

More information about a nascent US seafloor instrument pool can be found here.

Workshop:

Details here.

This now-virtual workshop will bring together and build the seafloor geodesy community, including scientists from academic institutions, government agencies, and international partners. During the workshop we will address the current status of existing, the development of emerging, and plans for future technologies in the field. As well, the workshop is essential to develop plans for the use of a recently funded pool of GNSS-Acoustic and Bottom Pressure Recorder seafloor geodetic instruments. The workshop will identify high priority scientific questions and targets for this instrument pool and the community preferred structure for managing the utilization of the instrument pool.

White Papers:

White paper submissions are officially closed (as of Sept 25th, 2020), and presently submitted contributions are available here.

Late submissions will be taken up until the virtual workshop, however they will be excluded from the preceding White Paper webinar.
