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:
Together with Barbara Romanowicz and Scott French at the Berkeley Seismological Laboratory, we have developed a new method for imaging the Earth’s interior at higher resolution. This method has yielded new images, published today in the journal Science, that reveal a previously unknown finger-like pattern of higher-than-average temperatures beneath the Earth’s oceans. The structure interacts
We are pleased to host a CIDER workshop focused on developing a new seismic reference model for the Earth’s mantle. The workshop will be taking place in the Crist Boardroom of the Riggs Alumni Center on April 26th, and at the UMUC conference center on April 27th.
