PASSCAL USER Workshop Pre_AGU Fall 2010

PASSCAL User Workshop : PRE-AGU - San Francisco December 12th 2010

Hello Dear Participants

We are excited with the great response we got from you all about our second workshop in San Francisco. During this workshop, we would like to focus our efforts  on providing an overview of the PASSCAL facility to young investigators, anyone with upcoming PASSCAL supported experiments or plan to submit a proposal to the National Science Foundation using PASSCAL equipment and support.

The workshop is divided into two sessions to provide some detail with presentations and disucssion on logistics, inventory, equipment,field work,data (morning session), but also have the opportunity to dedicate the afternoon for a 'hands on instrumentation" part when you all can ask questions and get more familiar with our instrumentation pool.
