Profiles in "Geodynamics and Seismology" Expertise Area

  • Ed Garnero studies the deep and inaccessible regions of the Earth and planetary bodies using seismology, a branch of geophysics. He wants to understand the dynamics and evolution of our planet as a whole.
  • Ramon Arrowsmith studies active faults, topography, and the geology of earthquakes. He teaches Field Geology these days and is currently the School of Earth and Space Exploration's Associate Director for Operations.
  • John is a seismologist and has been an independent software developer and an electrical engineer specializing in data communications and instrumentation. He is currently a research specialist in SESE working with Ed Garnero.
  • Li uses numerical simulations to investigate the structure, dynamics and evolution of the Earth and other planets, and the surface expressions of deep mantle processes.
  • Tung develops new generations of finite-element models to simulate earthquake, volcano eruptions and tsunami mechanisms, revolutionizing the earth-modeling complexities. Projects have been supported by NASA and NSF.
