The Environmental & Computational Seismology group at Stanford is led by Dr. Lucia Gualtieri. We are interested in solving forward and inverse problems related to emerging fields in seismology in order to develop a theoretical understanding of the seismic signals generated by a variety of environmental processes. Notably, we are interested in using seismic waves generated by natural phenomena such as ocean storms, tropical cyclones, landslides and rockfalls to
- understand the physics of their generation mechanisms,
- build computer models that are able to explain the data,
- use these datasets to probe the environment and scan the Earth's interior.
