Current Research in EEPS Seminar – Dr. Jonathan Ajo-Franklin – Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
Current Research in EEPS Seminar - Dr. Jonathan Ajo-Franklin - Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory Title: Exploring the Subsurface with Distributed Acoustic Sensing & Dark Fiber Abstract: “Dark Fiber” refers to the large number of fiber optic lines installed for telecommunication purposes but not currently utilized. With the advent of distributed acoustic sensing (DAS), these unused fibers have the potential to become a seismic sensing network with unparalleled spatial extent and density with applications to monitoring both natural seismicity as…Find out more »

Current Research in EEPS Seminar - Miles Bodmer - Department of Earth Sciences, University of Oregon Title: Seismic Imaging of Upper Mantle Heterogeneity in the Cascadia Subduction Zone: How asthenospheric anomalies beneath the incoming plate influence subduction dynamics. Abstract: Subduction zones are key locations in Earths tectonic system where oceanic plate is recycled, arc volcanism is generated, and active deformation and orogenesis occurs. However, investigation of these systems has been limited by the dearth of dense offshore data,…Find out more »
Current Research in EEPS Seminar - Bingjie Ouyang - Earth Sciences Department, Dartmouth College Title: Barium, Strontium, and Radium in Wastewater from Unconventional Oil & Gas Production – Distributions in Wastewater and Implications to Treatment Abstract: Wastewater from high volume hydraulic fracturing (HVHF) is highly saline and often contains elevated concentrations of strontium (Sr), barium (Ba) and radium (Ra). These elements are considered major contaminants during unconventional oil and gas production and may significantly reduce production efficiency if precipitated…Find out more »
Current Research in EEPS Seminar – Gerard Salter – Department Earth Sciences, University of Minnesota
Current Research in EEPS Seminar - Gerard Salter - Department Earth Sciences, University of Minnesota Dynamics of flux partitioning in delta bifurcations Bifurcations are the gatekeepers of delta networks, controlling the distribution of fluxes such as water, sediment, and nutrients to different parts of the delta. Deltas are home to an estimated 500 million people worldwide. They are naturally low-lying, making them vulnerable to relative sea-level rise. Understanding of how fluxes are partitioned among the branches of delta networks…Find out more »
For outside visitors, the best way to get to our department is to come in on Rice Blvd and turn into entrance 20 (intersection of Rice and Kent St.). At the stop sign, you will see a visitor parking lot. From there, walk east to the department. The google map below shows exactly where our building is.
