Science and Operations:
Infrasound Array Calibration
Curt A. L. Szuberla
Geophysical Institute and Physics Department

The group of infrasound faculty, staff and students at the Geophysical Institute tread a twofold path. On the one hand, they take part in the traditional research enterprise that has been a strength of UAF for many decades &emdash; on the other, there is an underlying component devoted to supporting a global treaty monitoring system. As a manager for the former, I occasionally find myself in conflict with my scientific colleagues over the competing demands of operational necessity and scientific rigor. This hastily arranged talk focuses on one successful cooperative effort that meets the need for metrology in the field and an approach that is physically sound.
