Mitch Withers

My primary role at CERI is managing the seismic and computer networks. We have 9 technical staff to help maintain these networks. We operate over 140 seismographs in 9 states and import real-time data from more than 100 additional stations from our monitoring partners in the region.

Mitch Withers, Seismic Director

My research interests include seismic and computer network operations and management, rapid automated generated maps of ground motion, automated signal processing techniques, and automated earthquake detection and location algorithms. Being a closet masochist, I enjoy writing Unix based C programs that provide a reasonable equivalence between the literal instructions and the conceptual intent.
