Geophysics provides the means for imaging and characterizing the variable physical properties and active processes within the uppermost portion of the Earth, i.e., those parts directly influenced by humankind. Our environmental work focuses on water resources, and carbon sequestration, using a combination of laboratory experiments, computational simulations, and fieldwork.
