Research Interests & Responsibilities include:

  • The use of passive seismic methods (e.g. microtremors) in determining
    Bottom
    3D surface plot of microtremor variations over a 24-hour time period viewed in map view (top) and in three-dimensions (bottom) (Lane, 2009)
    the engineering  properties of the shallow sub-surface.
  • Seismic data acquisition and quality control methods.
  • Development of data manipulation, visualisation, mining and archiving tools.
  • Design, implementation & support of NERC’s seismic equipment database.
