Geophysics applied to tectonic, resource exploration, and environmental problems, as well as Geoinformatics. Seismic and radar imaging for neotectonics and petroleum exploration, potential field modeling applied to tectonic problems, and application of new information technology in the geosciences are all current topics of research.
Seismic and radar imaging of alluvial fans in desert environments.
Seismic static corrections derived from shallow, high resolution seismic and radar in desert environments.
Quantification of off-fault strain distribution across active faults using shallow seismic and radar imaging.
Potential field modeling of tectonic features in the Basin and Range, western USA.
Use of neural nets to transform geophysical well log information to fully populated hydrocarbon reservoir models.
Anisotropic algorithm development for improved seismic imaging and workflow continuity.
