Using Noise to Monitor Permafrost

UF Geological Sciences PhD student Stephanie James has been advancing new methods to use seismic noise to monitor seasonal changes in depth to ice in Alaskan sediments. With co-authors from Sandia National Laboratory and UF, she recently published a paper “Improved moving window cross-spectral analysis for resolving large temporal seismic velocity changes in permafrost” in Geophysical Research Letters. This paper was selected as a recent “Editor’s Highlight”.
Stephanie James completed her PhD in May and received a National Science Foundation Postdoctoral Fellowship to continue her research in this field. She will be collaborating with researchers at the US Geological Survey in Colorado.
