To understand what the underground geology looks like we use various geophysics approaches. Here the team is deploying a broadband seismometer to "listen" for seismic events. These could include an earthquake or something more rare like a meteor strike on the surface. Scientists interpret the way that seismic waves reflect or refract off buried surfaces to interpret the subsurface geology.

Happy to announce that Desert RATS work continues as members of our team conduct scientific research to assess how geophysics techniques might have helped answer the science questions posed by DRATS during 2010. Keep up to date with our ongoing field campaigns including folks from the University of Maryland, University of Northern Arizona, NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center and NASA's Johnson...
