My work focuses on the analysis of microseism as a proxy for various environmental forcings. I am studying the amplitude, frequency content, and directionality of seismic noise at a number of Antarctic seismic stations in relation to the sea ice extent and atmospheric patterns, both locally and regionally. I hope that my research will be of interest to both seismologists and climatologists studying the unified geophysical system of the Southern Hemisphere's atmosphere, cryosphere, and lithosphere.
Starting in Fall 2013, Alex has been pursuing a degree in geophysics at Rice. Good luck Alex!
