Pre-AGU PASSCAL Users PH5 Workshop 2017

Late-stage graduate students! Postdocs! Researchers and faculty!

IRIS PASSCAL Instrument Center would like to invite you to register for our PASSCAL Users Workshop to be held on Sunday December 10th, 2017 (the day before the beginning of the AGU Fall meeting). 

This year's workshop will be a hands-on training session covering the complete process to build a PH5 archive, starting from 'raw' data and moving to a complete archive ready to be shipped to the PIC. We will provide a standard data set for the hands-on exercise so that participants can familiarize themselves with procedures for building and verifying a PH5 archive from raw data.

This workshop will be useful to anyone who has an upcoming PASSCAL-supported experiment, or is planning to propose an experiment, and will be particularly useful to current graduate students and new investigators.

Tentative schedule (1:00pm-5:00pm) Presentations covering:

  • Introduction to PH5 format, kitchen exchange formats, and requirements
  • Mixed mode experiments and the advantages of PH5
  • Archiving data, and what needs to be archived.
  • Instrumentation and PH5
    • Compatible instrumentation/data formats
    • Data conversion and common problems
  • Field tools for PH5
  • PH5 at the DMC
    • Requesting SEG-Y data using the web form
    • Requesting data from PH5 archives using web services
  • Hands-on practice session with data
    • Requirements (software, installing PH5)
    • Introduction to documentation
    • Metadata requirements & troubleshooting
    • Building your own archive
    • Extracting data
  • Questions, comments, and discussion
