Centers, Labs, and Programs

We work in several different areas in infrasonics: source studies, propagation modeling, array processing, and wind noise reduction.

Performs research in acoustic theory as it relates to applications such as oceanography and physics.

Develops geophysical instruments including sensors for detection of seismic, infrasonic, and crustal deformation signals.

Focuses on physics-based signal processing mostly using just weak noise as a source.
