HOBITSS - Hikurangi Ocean Bottom Investigation of Tremor and Slow Slip

UTIG research scientist Laura Wallace was the Chief Scientist for the HOBITSS Expedition offshore eastern New Zealand. Find out more about the survey from the video.

Scientists Pioneer Method To Track Water Flowing Through Glaciers

UTIG researcher Tim Bartholomaus and his colleagues for the first time have used seismic sensors to track meltwater flowing through glaciers and into the ocean, an essential step to understanding the future of the world's largest glaciers as climate changes.

UTIG Scientist Named NASA Early Career Fellow

Krista Soderlund, a UTIG research associate, has received the prestigious honor of being named a NASA Early Career Fellow. Find out more.

Earthquakes in Western Solomon Islands Have Long History, Study Shows

A UTIG research team, including PhD student Kaustubh Thirumalai and researchers Frederick Taylor, Luc Lavier, Cliff Frohlich, and Laura Wallace, published results of their study online in Nature Communications. Their findings suggest that future large earthquakes will occur, but predicting when is difficult because of the complex environment at the interface of the tectonic plates. Read more.

Radar Techniques Used in Antarctica Will Scour Europa for Life-Supporting Environments

When a NASA spacecraft sets off to explore Jupiter's icy moon Europa to look for the ingredients of life, radar equipment designed by UTIG researchers to pierce the ice of Antarctica will be among the passengers. Read more.
