Ancient Lake Contributed to Past San Andreas Fault Ruptures and Could Help Explain Fault’s “Earthquake Drought”
SDSU joint Ph.D. student Ryley Hill presented new work using geophysical modeling to quantify how the presence of a large lake overlying the fault could have affected rupture timing on the southern San Andreas in the past.
The dean of the College of Sciences gained early exposure to research opportunities and wants to ensure SDSU students do too. His priority is to ensure the high-caliber faculty recruited by the college have the resources to take their research to the next level.
SDSU’s Homeland Security Graduate Program co-directors, Eric Frost and Lance Larson, will use additional funds provided by the award to deliver an education of the Homeland Security Enterprise with focused training on cyber and open-source intelligence to build up existing and future DHS needs and opportunities and solve real problems as a means to learning.
