Geophysics Research Group

We use geophysical field studies and theoretical numerical experiments to address a wide range of geological, hydrogeological, and volcanological questions.  Our common focus as a group is the suite of geophysical methods we use:  seismology, magnetics, gravity, near-surface seismics, electromagnetics, resistivity, SP, ground penetrating radar, and others.  Our studies range in scale from a few meters (for example high-resolution imaging of sinkholes) to regional investigations of volcano seismicity and structure.
