SUMMARY: The Community Geodetic Model (CGM) is a SCEC community effort to research and develop best practices for geodetic displacement time series, velocities and derived strain rate fields, from both GNSS and InSAR, which are made available to the scientific community for application to earthquake and other geophysical studies throughout southern California. The workshops held in March 2018 and September 2019 provided technical contributors and user groups with a forum to exchange information and reach consensus on technical approaches to generating the geodetic products, and potential uses of them. Significant progress has since been made on all aspects, particularly on producing InSAR time series and developing a preliminary web viewer through which users can search for and download CGM products.

This workshop over two consecutive half-days will include speakers on various topics of interest on generating and application of geodetic products; a summary and demonstration of the current CGM products, and how to access and use them; discussion sessions for the CGM Working Group to receive immediate feedback on the design and useability of the CGM products; and breakout sessions for current and potential contributors and users to provide guidance for future research plans. The primary outcomes expected from the workshop are initial feedback from the potential user community regarding the time series products available via the web viewer and reader tools, including refined and prioritized action items, and plans for submission of coordinated and collaborative technical development proposals in response to the 2022 SCEC RFP and other funding opportunities.

All times below are Pacific Standard Time (PST or UTC-8).
