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.

UTIG Research Scientist Leads HOBITTS Expedition

UTIG research scientist Laura Wallace is the Chief Scientist for the HOBITTS Expedition offshore eastern New Zealand. This R/V Roger Revelle survey is part of an NSF-sponsored study on silent earthquakes. Read the HOBITTS Expedition Blog.

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.

UTIG Researcher Selected for International Scientific Leadership Role

UTIG scientist, Jamie Austin, has been selected as forum chair of the International Ocean Discovery Program (IODP), a coalition of 26 countries dedicated to studying some of the planet’s most important environmental and earth science topics by sampling sub-seafloor environments around the world.
