The National Science Foundation (NSF) has funded an Early Career Scientist Training Cruise in Seismic Data Acquisition and Processing to take place aboard the R/V Revelle in September 2017.The official announcement and application form for this opportunity will be forthcoming.nAs part of this effort, the program’s Principal Investigators will be hosting a three-part webinar series, which will provide participants with necessary information to complete the application package, including a 2-page (max) science proposal. The webinars will introduce the participants to the process of defining science goals, developing detailed cruise plans to meet those goals, and to fundamentals of active source marine seismology. The course will also cover the use of currently available data, open source processing, and interpretation tools to help develop a proposal. The cruise has been designed for (but is not limited to) graduate students and early career scientists who are “non-specialists” in active source seismic, but we welcome any interested parties for this webinar series! The program PIs are: Masako Tominaga (TAMU), Anne Trehu (OSU), Mitch Lyle (OSU), and Gregory Mountain (Rutgers), with additional support from Nathan Bangs (UTIG). Interested individuals can sign up for the free webinars, even if they do not intend to apply to the cruise opportunity. Please RVSP at the following link: and the UNOLS Office will send login and participation instructions prior to the start of the webinars. The deadline for webinar registration is April 3, 2017.
