About Jacqueline Caplan-Auerbach

I am a seismologist whose research focuses on the seismic and acoustic signals associated with volcanoes and landslides. Current research projects include the seismicity and internal structure of Lo`ihi submarine volcano, the seismoacoustics of vulcanian eruptions, and a study of long-period seismicity on Mount Baker volcano. A bit more detail about some of these projects is available on my research page (although this may not be terribly current). I am actively seeking new graduate students with an interest in applying concepts of physics to studies of the Earth and volcanic systems.
