Seafloor Geodesy as a Community Resource

Date/Time & Location

Wednesday, October 9th from 11-12 PM in the Galleria South Room


Noel Bartlow, UC-Berkeley
David Schmidt, Univ. of Washington
Andrew Newman, Georgia Tech


The community has identified seafloor geodesy as a desirable resource to study dynamic offshore geological processes. This SIG will explore what seafloor geodetic instruments, including GNSS-Acoustic and seafloor pressure, and methodologies are of greatest interest to the community, and the different means by which individual researchers might access these tools.  We envision discussions of how a community seafloor geodetic facility might operate, including as a pool of instruments available for individual PI-teams, or by larger community experiments. We will also explore methods to best ready the community to successfully propose and carryout seafloor geodetic experiments, once a facility is developed. We offer this time for the community to discuss new ideas for the use and development of community infrastructure for seafloor geodesy, possibly expanding upon individual or small PI-team needs.
