Our Facilities

The seismology group maintains a fully managed, state-of-the art computer system including access to a 1950 node cluster and multi-core workstations on every student or researcher desk. We also have field equipment including our own portable broadband seismic network for remote deployments, a terresterial LiDAR, gravimeter,and borehole pressure and temperature sensors. This flexible pool allows us to embark on remote studies in Antarctica, Sichuan and Costa Rica with minimal external logistics. The earthquake physics laboratory also maintains a TA AR2000ex industrial rheometer for granular flow studies and a Zygo Newview white light interferometer.
