Seismic Instrumentation Technology Symposium coming to Albuquerque on June 10-11, 2013

The next Seismic Instrumentation Technology Symposium (ITS2013) will be held in Albuquerque, NM on June 10th and 11th, 2013, at the Sheraton Albuquerque Airport Hotel.

The IRIS website has a page for the conference, with the agenda, participants, and registration form.

The theme of this symposium is to examine future technology, both from the perspective of capabilities scientists and engineers are seeking and the technologies that are, or will be, in the product pipeline of the seismic technology industry. The symposium will provide a forum for perspectives from both technology users and vendors and allow generous time for discussion and interaction.

Posters on any seismic technology-related topic are welcome, and all poster presenters will be given an opportunity to provide a short verbal overview of their poster.

Here are some of the presentations that are currently scheduled. Many more are in the works.

  • Earthquake early warning – Richard Allen
  • Glacial seismology – Sridhar Anandakrishnan
  • Cabled OBS systems – Eiichiro Araki
  • Large displacement seismology w/GPS-accelerometers – Yehuda Bock group
  • Taiwan dense sampling, regular/rotational sensors – Chin-Jen Lin
  • Hewlett Packard MEMs – Don Milligan
  • Posthole sensor emplacements – Neil Spriggs (Nanometrics)
  • AUVs (underwater) – Norman Farr
  • NSF Industry/Academic Partnerships – Rafaelli Montelli
  • Nodal seismic dense 3D survey, Long Beach – Rob Clayton/Dan Hollis
  • Fracking monitoring – Jim Rutledge
  • Seismometer Testing – Bob Hutt/Adam Ringler
  • Datalogger/System Component Testing – Darren Hart
  • Current experiments - what people are doing; what are some stumbling blocks; what capabilities are most needed?
    • Broadband land – Bob Busby
    • Active source land – Larry Brown
    • Polar – Paul Carpenter
    • Oceans – Anne Trehu
    • Aftershocks/Engineering – Bob Nigbor

We hope to see you there!
