Professors Michael Manga and Kristie Boering were among five UC Berkeley faculty members elected to the most prestigious scientific society in the United States, on May 1, 2018.
Berkeley Seismology Laboratory's Qingkai Kong and team have won a 2018 "Student Presentation Award" from the Seismological Society of America (SSA) for the presentation: "MyShake – Building...
We develop embedded boundary methods to handle arbitrarily shaped topography to accurately simulate acoustic seismic wave propagation in Laplace-Fourier domain. The purpose is to use this...
“With the increasing global population and stress on natural resources, volcanoes threaten more lives every day… It is thus critical to understand the factors that control whether a...
...the best existing geochronological constraints come from volcanic successions with little paleoenvironmental information.
Seismic attenuation imaging provides insights into subsurface structures that are complementary to velocity and conductivity images.
Slow earthquakes are characterized by slower fault slips than ordinary earthquakes but faster than stable sliding, with various characteristic timescales ranging from seconds to years....
Delta fronts are often characterized by high rates of sediment supply that result in unstable slopes and a wide variety of soft‐sediment deformation, including the formation of...
Almost all seismic stations around the world are based on land, leaving many oceanic earthquakes undetected. Harnessing the million-plus kilometers of underwater fiber-optic cables to...
Recent paleontological work described and published a new genus and species of Paleozoic fossil plant, named "Douropteris alvarezii", that honors Professor Walter Alvarez.
