NGS Leveling Course

In March 2017, Geodynamics team members attended a 3-day Geodetic Leveling course at the NGS Corbin Training Center in Corbin, VA. The class covered many topics, including leveling history and theory, modern equipment and techniques, digital level operation and data collection.  Participants also learned how to process leveling data, prepare station descriptions, and submit data to NGS. Based on participation in the NGS course, Aron Lemke has prepared leveling mini-courses and practice exercises to provide in-house training to the entire Geodynamics team.  These skills will be used for digital leveling and tide gauge installation, and to improve daily survey operation.
