Shared Field Measurement Facility

NOTE: The Shared Field Measurement Facility is going through a transition and most of the equipment is being dispersed among various research groups within the Geophysics Department. If you have questions, please try Jen Kidwell ( or Ryan Petterson ( Our apologies for any inconvenience.

The Shared Field Measurement Facility’s primary aim is to provide support, education and technical expertise to members of the Stanford community interested in or needing to conduct field based research or teaching.

The facility houses a range of geophysical, GPS, and surveying instruments, as well as field computer options for data logging or mapping that are available to users. The facility will maintain, calibrate, and service these instruments as needed to keep them in a field ready status.

The Shared Field Measurement Facility is based in the Mitchell Building of the School of Earth, Energy & Environmental Sciences; with office space in room 132 and an equipment storage, maintenance, and preparation area in B17 (in the basement level of the Mitchell Building). All inquiries regarding the operation and management of the facility should be directed to Ryan Petterson (
