Centers, Labs, and Projects

Broadband Seismic Data Collection Center (ANZA)
Seismic data for the following regional networks, arrays, and portable deployments.
Atmospheric Acoustics Laboratory
We work in several different areas in infrasonics: source studies, propagation modeling, array processing, and wind noise reduction.
Gravity Lab
Develops geophysical instruments including sensors for detection of seismic, infrasonic, and crustal deformation signals.
Ocean Bottom Seismograph Instrument Pool (Obs Facility)
Provides instrumentation to support research to further our understanding of marine geology, seismology and geodynamics.
Pinon Flat Observatory (PFO) and Strainmeter Group
Measuring time-varying deformations with (mostly) longbase strainmeters and tiltmeters, primarily in southern California.
Project IDA (International Deployment of Accelerometers)
 A global network of broadband seismometers operated by the Institute of Geophysics and Planetary Physics.
Scripps Orbit and Permanent Array Center (SOPAC)
Processes and archives high-precision GPS data for the study of earthquake hazards, tectonic plate motion, crustal deformation and meteorology.  
Noise Lab
Focuses on physics-based signal processing mostly using just weak noise as a source.
High Performance Wireless Research and Education Network (HPWREN)
Supports Internet-data applications in the research, education, and public safety realms in San Diego, Riverside, and Imperial counties.
