Energy

Geophysical methods are central to locating the energy resources that modern civilization is critically dependent on. Energy related work in the Department of Geophysics is focused on developing new methods for high resolution imaging of Earth structure, determining what those images mean in terms of physical properties, and optimizing production and utilization of unconventional energy resources.
