Thanks to the efforts of Dr. Xiaoran Chen the Rutgers University Seismology group now has a landing page on GitHub. It will host software we use and develop. See Software tab in the navigation menu for details.
This is Jim’s first paper as a first author, with all work done and manuscript written since his arrival at Rutgers in January of 2019. Co-authors are Vadim Levin, Ivonne Arroyo and Lepolt Linkimer.
After a long wait and some careful planning I was fortunate to do a small amount of fieldwork in New England. I serviced a few instruments of the New England Seismic Transect (NEST) array located along the Mohawk Trail in NY and MA. This is a collaboration with Maureen Long (Yale) and Paul Karabinos (Williams) that … Read More
Seismic anisotropy in southern Costa Rica confirms upper mantle flow from the Pacific to the Caribbean Vadim Levin, Stephen Elkington, James Bourke, Ivonne Arroyo and Lepolt Linkimer Geology, v. 48, online 09/04/2020 https://doi.org/10.1130/G47826.1
Seismic anisotropy in southern Costa Rica confirms upper mantle flow from the Pacific to the Caribbean. Vadim Levin, Stephen Elkington, James Bourke, Ivonne Arroyo, and Lepolt Linkimer Key Fiinding We derive new constraints on the nature of seismic anisotropy in the upper mantle of southern Costa Rica from observations of birefringence in teleseismic shear waves. … Read More
Presentation of research results at the end their involvement with the GREAT project was planned to happen at the Aresty Research Symposium. Due to a move of everything online, results – posted and narrated videos of students presenting them, are mounted on the project website instead.
Just returned from a very successful trip to Costa Rica where my 7 students and myself visited our seismic stations, helped with a gravity survey and discussed our work with colleagues at the School of Geology. Student blogs tell it all…
Zhenxin worked in our lab for a year (Fall 2017 through Fall 2018). He developed a number of important improvements to the harmonic decomposition method of Park & Levin (2016), in particular – a method of guided inversion for anisotropic properties of subsurface layers. A link to the paper is HERE
Yiran Li (Rutgers MS 2019, presently a PhD candidate at SUNY Binghamton) has her third paper, first as a lead author, published by G-cubed. Co-authors are myself and two former undergraduate research assistants – Stephen Elkington and Janine Hlavaty. The paper provides a comprehensive analysis of rock texture in northeast North America, and offers new … Read More
The rci.rutgers.edu/~vlevin site is no more. I will be rebuilding here, as my time permits. If you came to my site following an old link and need something specific – please send me a note.
