Abstract : Our research objectives are directed toward understanding electromagnetic propagation in dielectric media with conductive losses; investigation of the complementary use of both seismic and ground penetrating radar (GPR) technologies; investigating the use lattice-gas cellular automata methods to determine the characteristics of the ground water hydrology from noninvasive measurements made at the ground surface; the development of algorithms and approaches to create a new improved 5x5 global grid of Rayleigh and Love surface wave group velocities; and the collection and interpretation of seismic data to determine crustal structure. We teamed with scientists from the Earth Sciences Division of Phillips Laboratory (PL/GPE) to conduct a field test of the complementary technologies, seismic and GPR. Additionally, our researchers helped install a large aperture seismic array surrounding the existing Pinedale Seismic Array to collect data for the purpose of characterizing the region geophysically.
