Rutgers Seismology

Our group investigates the interior structure of the Earth using waves produced within it by earthqaukes, and also the earthquakes themselves.  Key research areas are:

1. seismic structure of the crust and the upper mantle

2. directional variation (anisotropy) of seismic properties in the Earth


Most of the research projects have "regional" focus, in that we explore specific geological problems of a given region by means of imaging the interior of the Earth beneath it.

Our research site is currently undergoing renovation due to a major hardware change at Rutgers. Check back episodically, it will re-grow.
