IRIS is pleased to announce a SIG meeting on Long-Term Seafloor Seismographs (LTSS) to be held at the 2017 AGU Fall Meeting in New Orleans.
The scientific needs of global and regional seismology require long-term (2 to 5+ years, ~permanent), high-quality, telemetered seismic observations from key seafloor sites in order to complement existing high-quality permanent stations on land.
The LTSS SIG is scheduled for Wednesday, December 13th from 4-5:30 pm Dauphine I & II rooms of the Hampton Inn & Suites / New Orleans Conference Center, and is being hosted by the WGLTSS (IRIS Working Group on Long-Term Seafloor Seismographs)
This SIG will provide an opportunity for community members who are interested in the deployment of "long-term" high-quality broadband seismic stations on the seafloor. Planned topics of discussion include:
Those interested in attending are asked to reply to this message [e-mail to Katrin Hafner - hafner (at) iris (dot) edu] so that we may get an approximate head count for catering and room setup. Responses before Thanksgiving would be greatly appreciated. Information about the charge of the WGLTSS is available at http://www.iris.edu/hq/about_iris/governance/wgltss
Thanks, and we hope to see you there!
