Our laboratory was established in November 2003.

We apply a variety of methods of geophysics to investigate the nature of solid Earth. As the word suggests, goephysics is the application of the methods of physics to the study of the Earth. Computer analysis of geophysical data (e.g., seismic waveforms) reveals physical properties of Earth's interior from the surface to the center of our planet. We use geophysical information to understand the process of Earth's formation and/or evolution and also to minimize the risk of earthquake hazard.

We encourage those who have interest in this field!
