Fouch speaking about EarthScope at Capitol Hill symposium

Matthew Fouch, an associate professor in the ASU School of Earth and Space Exploration will speak at the EarthScope Symposium and Reception for Congressional members and staff on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C., today.

Matt will present results from his research group, which currently focuses on high-resolution imaging of the crust and mantle beneath western North America. He is also working to bridge scientific disciplines, with a current effort to reconcile inferences of dynamics in the deep subsurface with surface observations of these processes using data including high-resolution GPS measurements.

Matt's research is part of the EarthScope program – a major multi-year, multi-disciplinary initiative to study the structure and dynamics of the North American continent.

AZGS, in partnership with ASU, NAU, and UA, recently acquired 8 broadband seismic stations from the EarthScope USArray program to create a statewide seismic monitoring system for Arizona.
