    Research groups and interests

    Earth Imaging more...

    The Earth Imaging group uses a wide variety of seismological techniques to image 3D Earth structure in an effort to understand the dynamic processes responsible for deformation, volcanism and earthquakes at the Earth's surface.

    Realtime Seismology more...

    The Realtime Seismology group is interested in all aspects of rapid geophysical data characterization. The desire for realtime information is motivated by hazard mitigation objectives, and the development of such techniques drives fundamental research into earthquake source processes.

    Observational systems

    Data is at the heart of all our research activities, so we also work to design, develop and implement new geophysical observational systems in response to scientific and societal needs including instrumentation, processing software and communications. Our ability to participate in this development is a unique aspect of being a member of the Berkeley Seismological Laboratory who operate geophysical networks across northern California.
