Where You Will Work
Located in northern New Mexico, Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) is a multidisciplinary research institution engaged in strategic science on behalf of national security. LANL enhances national security by ensuring the safety and reliability of the U.S. nuclear stockpile, developing technologies to reduce threats from weapons of mass destruction, and solving problems related to energy, environment, infrastructure, health, and global security concerns.
Geophysics (EES-17) supports national security by providing technical expertise in a diverse number of areas including the identification of seismoacoustic sources. The group is comprised of three teams: Modeling and Simulation, Seismo-Acoustic, and Sensors and Signatures. We have extensive expertise in seismic and acoustic monitoring as well as numerical modeling of tectonic processes across a wide spectrum of scales from the near-field (ground shock from explosives) to the far-field (reservoir- and plate-scale stress fields). In addition, we study the nonlinear properties of Earth materials, model the mechanics of rock fracture, and use seismology to evaluate the interaction of porous rocks and fluids.
