Ilya Tsvankin, professor of geophysics at Colorado School of Mines, is the winner of the 2020 Outstanding Educator Award from SEG.
In addition to monitoring and listening to ambient noise including the local construction work, the class hopes to record local and distant earthquakes from around the globe.
Mines' Matthew Siegfried contributed to the new estimates of ice shelf melting around Antarctica over the past 25 years, published Aug. 10 in the journal Nature Geoscience.
In Antarctica, Greenland and the Canadian Arctic, Geophysics Assistant Professor Matt Siegfried studies how glaciers and ice sheets move and evolve.
A Colorado School of Mines glaciologist was part of a team of scientists that used the most advanced Earth-observing laser instrument NASA has ever flown in space to make precise, detailed measurements of how the elevation of the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets have changed over 16 years.
The 3D scans are obtained by a technique called seismic tomography – like medical CAT scans but using the seismic waves generated by earthquakes.
Developing machine learning-enabled acoustic imaging for first responders will represent a major advancement in mine rescue, which is surprisingly low-tech in some ways.
The new Center for Mining Sustainability will address the environmental and societal concerns surrounding small-scale mining and promote the practice in a way that sustains the industry, supports local economies and minimizes environmental impacts.
Newly digitized vintage film has doubled how far back scientists can peer into the history of underground ice in Antarctica, and revealed that an ice shelf on Thwaites Glacier in West Antarctica is
A Colorado School of Mines geophysics professor was part of a team of scientists investigating an Antarctic ice shelf the size of Colorado and Utah combined that discovered an ancient geologic
