Oxford Earthquake Geology and Geodesy researchers investigate earthquakes past and present through a variety of collaborative international research programs.
Centre for Observation and Modelling of Earthquakes, Volcanoes, and Tectonics
COMET is a multi-institutional, multidisciplinary UK centre aimed at improving our understanding of seismic and volcanic processes and the hazards they present. Researchers from Oxford collaborate with colleagues around the UK and the world using satellite InSAR, ground-based surveying and sensing, and modelling to enhance our knowledge of geologic hazards all over the planet.
Earthquakes Without Frontiers
The EwF partnership brings together Earth scientists, social scientists, and experienced practitioners in the communication of scientific knowledge to policy makers, in order to explore the vulnerability and improve the resilience of communities in disaster-prone regions.
Looking Inside the Continents from Space
The multi-institutional, NERC-funded LiCS project exploits the proliferation of space-borne Earth Observing platforms to monitor, measure, and explore the deformation of Earth’s continents, and to characterise the earthquake cycle.
