Addressing Geophysical Hazards through Continuously Operating Observational Network and Integrated Ocean Drilling Program

Yevgeniy Kontar contributed the white paper, Addressing Caribbean Geophysical Hazards through the Continuously Operating Caribbean GPS Observational Network (COCONet) and Integrated Ocean Drilling Program (IODP) (http://www.unavco.org/community/meetings-events/2011/coconet/abstracts/Yev_Kontar_white_paper.pdf) to the UNAVCO COCONet workshop in Puerto Rico (February 3-4, 2011). UNAVCO is a member-governed university consortium serving new science communities, including those focusing on the deformation of the Earth's response to groundwater, sea level, and other aspects of the hydrosphere. The UNAVCO-supported toolbox available to the science community has expanded to include many new geodetic tools: advancing GPS towards millimeter-level global GPS geodesy and to streaming high rate observations; borehole strain meters and seismometers; and expanded geodetic imaging using LiDAR and InSAR (Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar.
