Seismology

Seismology Research at CERIResearch involving seismology is a core strength of CERI. Our research interests cover most aspects of seismology and range from near surface processes to studies involving the lithosphere and asthenosphere. Theoretical developments as well as observational studies are used to address outstanding problems in seismology that pertain to local, regional, and global phenomena. Our strength in seismology links the various research efforts at CERI and facilitates interaction between our faculty members. The result is a vibrant research group on the forefront of solving problems in a collegial, stimulating environment.

 The research interests from faculty affiliated with Seismology include:

  • Wave propagation
  • Crustal and mantle velocity and anisotropy structure
  • Seismic source physics
  • Seismotectonics
  • Seismic hazard analysis
  • Engineering seismology
  • Near-surface velocity structure
  • Reflection seismology
  • Induced seismicity
  • Advanced data processing techniques
