Fieldwork and computer programming combine to study Louisiana coastal land loss, karstic
regions of southwestern Georgia and the Ozarks, and earthquake and volcanic hazards
in Asia, Italy and U.S. Studies use industry data, ground-penetrating radar, electrical
resistivity and state-of-the-art seismic equipment in innovative research with societal
impacts. Novel approaches with lab and field acoustics are used to characterize Earth
and Mars soils.
