Industrial Affiliate Programs
Stanford encourages the close collaboration with companies and welcomes industry to participate in our research. Geophysics has several Affiliate Programs which are set up to facilitate knowledge and technology transfer between industry and academia.
Director: Mark D. Zoback
Co-Directors: Greg Beroza and Jack Baker
Research focus: to address the variety of scientific and operational issues associated with the managing the risk posed by induced and triggered earthquakes.
Co-Directors: Biondo Biondi and Hamdi Tchelepi
Annual membership: $20,000
Research focus: To evaluate modern High Performance Computing (HPC) architectures for reservoir-simulation and seismic-imaging algorithms.
Co-Directors: Jon F. Claerbout and Biondo Biondi
Annual membership: $45,000
Research focus: to improve the theory and practice of constructing 3-D and 4-D images of the Earth from seismic echo soundings
Director: Amos M. Nur
Co-Directors: Gary Mavko and Mark D. Zoback
Research focus: To understand the physical properties of Earth materials, and how those properties evolve under in situ conditions of stress, pore fluid pressure, and temperature. Exploring properties and processes in rock as related to geophysical exploration, crustal studies, and tectonic and borehole processes.
