- National Science Foundation
- The Geophysics Program supports basic research in the physics of the solid earth to explore its composition, structure, and processes from the Earth’s surface to it’s deepest interior. Laboratory, field, theoretical, and computational studies are supported. Topics include seismicity, seismic wave propagation, and the nature and occurrence of geophysical hazards; the Earth’s magnetic, gravity, and electrical fields; the Earth’s thermal structure; and geodynamics. Supported research also includes geophysical studies of active deformation, including geodesy, and theoretical and experimental studies of the properties and behavior of Earth materials.
