  • IRIS Internship Program - PhD Research Position at the University of Twente, the Netherlands
    Combining GOCE and Seismology This four year PhD position is offered within the department of Earth Systems Analysis Faculty ITC at the University of Twente the Netherlands in collaboration with Utrecht University Pennsylvania State University USA and is conducted within the framework of the AfricaArray project The research is supported under NWO grant GO AO 31 and part of the European Space Agency PI project GOCE4306 The proposed research will focus on innovative applications and combined analysis of GOCE satellite gravity data with seismological data in Africa The research will focus on yet unexplained Earth structure on the borders of the Congo and Kalahari craton Insight in this structure will be obtained through analysis of 3D gradient GOCE satellite gravity data and integration with surface wave tomography For this purpose a unique seismological network will be installed to provide unprecedented seismological coverage to strengthen the satellite gravity inversions and provide unique geodynamical and compositional information on a previously poorly studied region The candidate will focus on the development of a subsurface models based on satellite gravity and seismological data The candidate will derive information on crust and upper mantle structure underneath station through receiver function analysis and in between through

  • IRIS Internship Program - Opportunity at Victoria University of Wellington
    be focused on comparing several methodologies to compare the fault zone to the region surrounding it including using cross correlations of seismic noise to measure time varying properties 2 Deep Fault Drilling Project Alpine Fault several studies addressing the structure and evolution of the Alpine Fault in the South Island are underway including analysis of data collected in shallow boreholes drilled into the fault in early 2011 Plans are now underway for deeper boreholes targeting the fault at 1 5 km depth and students interested in working on the microstructural seismological or pressure temperature monitoring data from the boreholes are encouraged to contact us 3 Alpine Fault seismicity we currently operate a 10 station network of seismographs spanning the central section of the Alpine Fault with the plan to locate and map hypocentres of events with magnitudes as small as zero We are seeking a student to work on all aspects of the network and earthquakes including newly discovered induced seismicity and non volcanic tremor 4 Volcano seismology We are continuing to develop techniques to test whether time varying seismic properties such as isotropic velocity anisotropy and attenuation can be used to determine changes in the magmatic system underneath volcanoes Volcanoes in New Zealand and overseas are being targetted 5 Structural studies using seismic noise the use of seismic noise as a source of energy with which to study earth structure is a new technique that has been rapidly evolving in the last decade This PhD will use several of the datasets discussed above to further develop the techniques and to determine the velocity structure in selected regions of New Zealand 6 Seismological studies of geothermal areas We are in the process of developing projects focussed on seismicity and structure around geothermal fields in New Zealand Possible PhD projects include
