IRIS and IRIS/PASSCAL Projects Highlighted at AGU 2011 Meeting

The American Geophysical Union's annual fall meeting is the premiere annual event for the geoscience community, and the AGU Fall Meeting 2011 was bigger and better than ever. Several presentations at the meeting concerned IRIS/PASSCAL directly, while many others featured geoscience projects supported by IRIS.  Here are links to abstracts for selected AGU 2011 presentations by IRIS and PASSCAL personnel, and for selected projects which benefited from IRIS/PASSCAL involvement.



Next Generation Polar Seismic Instrumentation Challenges, Tim Parker, Bruce C Beaudoin, James Gridley, Kent R Anderson

Contributions to the building and upgrading of the Greenland Ice Sheet Monitoring Network (GLISN), Angela Marie Reusch, Dean Childs, Kent R Anderson)

Bringing Seismology's Grand Challenges to the Undergraduate Classroom, Margaret H Benoit, J Taber, Michael Hubenthal.
