Caltech's Seismological Laboratory, an arm of the Division of Geological and Planetary Sciences (GPS), was established in 1921. It has a distinguished history of leadership in science and serving the public interest. Internationally recognized for excellence in geophysical research and academics while also having outstanding facilities in seismic networks, high performance computing, and mineral physics, makes the Seismo Lab an ideal place for study and research. The Lab serves as a focal point for earthquake information in Southern California and the world.
Seismo Lab Students Present at the AGU Fall meeting 2013
December 9-13, Seismo Lab students will present their research at the American Geophysical Union (AGU) annual fall meeting. They will report their findings on a range of topics, reflecting the diversity of studies undertaken in the Seismo Lab and the collaborative approach to addressing research questions.
Brent Minchew will present new results that cast light on the seasonal evolution of hydrological systems beneath glaciers. Subglacial hydrological systems are an important control on ice mass loss in areas such as Greenland, Iceland, and mountain glaciers throughout the world.
The AGU annual fall meeting, held in San Francisco, is the largest gathering of Earth scientists in the World and the premier conference for geophysics. Each year Seismo Lab students, post-docs, and faculty showcase their research through invited talks, oral presentations, and poster sessions.
