Geophysics

student on computer

Fieldwork and computer programming combine to study Louisiana coastal land loss, karstic regions of southwestern Georgia and the Ozarks, and earthquake and volcanic hazards in Asia, Italy and U.S. Studies use industry data, ground-penetrating radar, electrical resistivity and state-of-the-art seismic equipment in innovative research with societal impacts. Novel approaches with lab and field acoustics are used to characterize Earth and Mars soils.
