- In June 2015, seismic data was acquired over the Waucobi Lake Beds near Big Pine, CA to address competing models for the uplift of the Sierra Nevada and extension of the westernmost Basin and Range.
- This project will use high-resolution passive seismic data of the Ruby Mountains metamorphic core complex to better understand the processes that occurred during its formation.
- In June 2014, ultra high-resolution seismic data were collected in southern California to investigate Quaternary tectonic deformation using submerged marine terraces surrounding several Channel Islands.
- The Stanford ultra-low frequency electromagnetic (ULFEM) Monitoring Project is recording naturally varying electromagnetic signals adjacent to active earthquake faults, in an attempt to establish whether there is any variation in these signals before or a
- HIMPROBE is an Indian national project, active since 2000, to create a NW-Himalayan geotransect from the Sub-Himalaya to the Karakoram Range.
- Project INDEPTH (International Deep Profiling of Tibet and the Himalaya) is a multidisciplinary geophysical and geological investigation of the Himalayas and Tibet. Field projects associated with INDEPTH I, II, and III took place between 1992-2000 and cov
- We have partnered with SinoProbe, the Chinese national scientific program led by CAGS to study the lithosphere to collect and interpret near-vertical and wide-angle seismic profiles across the Karakoram Fault. In complementary geochemical studies we are w
- In January 2011, students and faculty from Stanford University deployed a network of 40 seismometers across southernmost California from the Pacific Ocean to the Colorado River. These seismometers recorded earthquakes from around the world for a period of
- US-EAGLE (Ethiopia-Afar Geoscientific Lithospheric Experiment) is the US component of the international EAGLE program to investigate modification of lithospheric structure during continental breakup.
- Stanford acquired a crustal-scale wide-angle profile across NW Nevada, an innovative but experimental crustal-scale 3D, 3C deployment across Steens Mountain-Alvord Desert, and high-resolution reflection and potential-field data across the Warner Mountains
