DTM scientists kicked-off the 2017 AGU Fall Meeting in New Orleans with seismology and geochemistry presentations on Monday, December 11, 2017.
Lara Wagner presented the Carnegie Quick Deploy Box (QDB) early in the morning as part of the session, "Seismology Contributions: Advances in Instrumentation and Installation Posters." QBDs take advantage of new technology improvements to make compact and cost-effective broadband seismometers, facilitating deployment during rapid reponse and large array situations.Lara Wagner presenting the Carnegie Quick Deploy Boxes at the AGU 2017 Fall meeting in New Orleans, Louisiana.
In the late morning, Jonathan Tucker and Bradley Peters presented their research as part of the session titled, "Formation of Earth and Its Chemical Reservoirs from High-Precision Isotope Measurements, Dynamical Modelling, Seismology, and Experimental Petrology," convened in part by DTM's Jesse Reimink. Tucker's research explores noble gas variability on Earth's upper mantle, and Peters works on geochemical signatures of Reúnion hotspot lavas.Jonathan Tucker (left) and Bradley Peters (right) at the 2017 AGU Fall Meeting.
Lara Wagner also gave a presentation in the afternoon during the "Eastern North American Margin: Multidisciplinary Studies" session. Her work uses seismic waves to image the North American tectonic plate and better understand events such as earthquakes, small volcanic eruptions, and crustal deformation in the Southeast.
In addition, the Carnegie Science communications team attended AGU's Presidential Forum featuring award-winning journalist, Dan Rather.
