Seminar class, no formal lectures, no exams, no letter grade, GNSS field survey in March

Friday1:00-3:00 PM, Munk Conference Room

OBJECTIVES:  The objectives of this seminar course are to learn the basics of InSAR and InSAR processing using GMTSAR. GNSS processing and applications. There will be one field trip (optional) to the North Shore section of the San Andreas fault to perform a GNSS survey across the fault.
