SIO Graduate student Jeff Dingler presented a poster at the EarthScope National Meeting entitled: "A high-resolution seismic CHIRP investigation of active normal faulting across the Lake Tahoe basin, California-Nevada" (by Dingler, Kent, Driscoll, Seitz, Babcock, Harding, Brothers, Karlin, and Goldman). Key to the research was the use and presentation of 3-D data images.
Danny Brothers, an SIO graduate student, presented a poster titled "Rupture History and Magnitude Estimates for the West Tahoe Fault, Westernmost Walker Lane" at the EarthScope National Meeting. Brothers and his co-authors (Dingler, Kent, Seitz, Smith, Driscoll, Harding, Babcock, and Karlin) used 3-D visualization techniques to help explore and understand their data.
Thomas Im and John Orcutt presented the technology behind high resolution tiled display systems like the MiniMe and their use in projects like ROADNet to attendees of the annual conference of the Corporation for Education Network Initiatives in California (CENIC).
