Centers, Labs, and Programs

Broadband Seismic Data Collection Center

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

Tectonics and hydrogeology.

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

Supports Internet-data applications in the research, education, and public safety realms in San Diego, Riverside, and Imperial counties.

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

Processes and archives high-precision GPS data for the study of earthquake hazards, tectonic plate motion, crustal deformation and meteorology.
 

A continental scale seismic observatory.
