Symposium 10/15/14
Topic: Earthquake Processes

Gareth J. Funning

Assistant Professor of Geophysics
UCR Depratment of Earth Sciences 
Gareth Funning is a geophysicist who is interested in how continents deform under stress and respond to earthquakes. These behaviors can be measured to millimeter-scale precision using satellite-based tools, such as GPS and Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar, or InSAR. These measurements help scientists decipher the processes that cause large, rapid displacements at the earth's surface, including earthquakes and the inflation of volcanoes. Using InSAR, even the slow movements of faults between earthquakes can be measured. This allows us scientists to estimate where future earthquakes will occur and how large they will be. Dr. Funning's current research projects include assessing the state of locking of the Hayward fault in California. Funning earned his Ph.D. in earth sciences from the University of Oxford in England.
