Short Courses

Know More

Dear Fellow Researchers and Practitioners, with great enthusiasm and pleasure, I would like to humbly announce that I will be engaging in a series of MASW training courses, starting domestically as early as this fall (October 2018). In this regard, I would like to solicit requests from related organizations and individuals about whether you would be interested in hosting the course on site.  Based upon initial feedback, I will come up with a schedule that is optimized geographically and in terms of various timing demands.

The training course will be a 1-day course, the contents of which are outlined here.  More details about how to become a host are explained here.  If you or your organization are interested, please contact me at your earliest convenience.

Sincerely yours,
Choon Park, Ph.D.

Short Course (MASW/ParkSEIS)

Park Seismic LLC provides short courses on the MASW method.  A short course can be organized as part of a major conference (for example, SAGEEP, ASCE, SEG, etc.) or on a case by case as requested by companies, universities, research institutes, and government organizations.  The course focuses on the following core components: (1) education of background theories, (2) hands-on practice of data processing, and (3) demonstration of field operations.  As part of the data processing practice, participants are usually provided with a limited-time license copy of the processing software (ParkSEIS).  The course can be as "short" as half-day (4-hour) or as long as more than a week. Sometimes longer courses can be arranged if on-site consultation of client's project(s) is required or deemed beneficial.  Contact us for inquiries regarding the arrangement of a short course specific to your needs.

The following is a selected list of short courses Park Seismic LLS has provided (is schedule to provide) to date:
