Anne Sheehan Group
I am interested in the geophysical study of the crust and upper mantle of the Earth and its relation to tectonic deformation. My ongoing projects include work in New Zealand, the Rio Grande Rift, the Rocky Mountains, and the Great Plains.
Much of the work I do includes the deployment of portable seismometers that record both distant and local earthquakes. The earthquakes are used as signals to image subsurface structure and to study earthquake source characteristics. I also have a number of collaborative projects including magnetotellurics in the Rocky Mountains and Rio Grande Rift (with Paul Bedrosian and Danny Feucht), Rio Grande Rift GPS (with Steve Nerem, Mark Murray, and Tonie van Dam), and Cascadia tsunami studies using seafloor pressure gauge data (with Aditya Gusman and Kenji Satake).
