Space Geodesy Seminar - SIOG 237
The objectives of this seminar course are to learn the basics of GPS and InSAR, and apply both techniques to study deformation in various places of interest (Southern California and elsewhere). There will be field trips during which we will visit active faults and conduct campaign GPS surveys.
