Remote Online Sessions for Emerging Seismologists (ROSES)

ROSES 2021:
Course Information and Materials

Course Description and Modality

ROSES 2021 was designed to have both synchronous and asynchronous course enrollment options to accommodate students across multiple time zones. Each week had a single course session containing a live, hour-long lecture component, where a field expert presented a lecture or information about an important aspect of seismology. This lecture was moderated and allowed participant questions. This was then followed by a live 'laboratory' session, where this instructor would demonstrate and execute code that built upon and applied the topics discussed in that day's lecture. This code was made available to all students, who would work through it simultaneously and use the code to tackle problems the instructor would provide. A slack channel for each lecture allowed students to debug and share their code together and consult the instructors for clarifications or general questions about the course materials. ROSES 2021 also took advantage of the Slack channel to build community across a geographically diverse student cohort.

A video of the live session was made available to students within ~24 hours to accommodate asynchronous participants. Below, we provide links to the video and course materials used during the course.

Course Support

The 2021 offering of ROSES would not be possible without the kind support of several institutions. These include the Seismological Society of America, the Incorporated Research Institutions for Seismology, the AGU Seismology Section, and the Alaska Satellite Facility at the University of Alaska Fairbanks.
