We are pleased to welcome Tolu Olugboji to the lab, and look forward to working with and learning from him in the coming years!
On September 1st, 2014, we welcomed Scott Burdick to the Maryland Seismological Laboratory. Scott graduated with a Ph.D. from MIT, where he has developed new techniques for seismic tomography and imaging. We look forward to working with and learning from Scott!
Seismological research and education at the University of Maryland, College Park has been strengthened and expanded with the hire of Nicholas Schmerr. Nick’s expertise in body wave seismology, planetary geophysics, and characterization of mantle discontinuities broadens the range of research currently performed at the Maryland Seismo Lab. We are very happy to have Nick as a
Ved Lekic received the Charles F. Richter Early Career Award at the 2014 Seismological Society of America Annual Meeting held in Anchorage, Alaska. http://www.seismosoc.org/awards/richter_award.php
The first paper authored by a student from the Maryland Seismological Lab has been accepted for publication in the prestigious Geophysical Journal International. Jesse Kolb, who led the study that presented a new method in reliable deconvolution for receiver functions, was an undergraduate researcher in the Seismo lab since February, 2012. After graduating from the University
Using data from the EarthScope Transportable Array, we observed and modeled conversions of S waves to P waves across velocity contrasts within the lithosphere across the Western United States. You can read more about our findings in Lekic and Fischer, 2013 and Hopper et al. 2014, but this cartoon provides a nice summary:
