GSN in Russia: 20th Anniversary

A team from the Global Seismographic Network (IRIS, USGS, UCSD, and associates) traveled to Russia August 24 - September 3 to visit the Geophysical Survey of the Russian Academy of Sciences (GS RAS) to renew our long and successful collaboration. September marks the twentieth anniversary of the first IRIS GSN station installed at Obninsk by the IRIS/IDA group at USCD. The meetings with Russian colleagues in both Obninsk and Moscow reflected upon this great long friendship. Hosted by Alexey Malovichko, Director of GS RAS, and Oleg Starovoit, Vice Director and colleague since the earliest days of GSN collaboration, the GSN met in Obninsk seeking ways to improve collaboration in the face of apparent challenges in customs and data flow. Substantial success was achieved.
