PhD student Emily Schottenfels sets sail off Oregon
PhD student Emily Schottenfels is currently on board of the R/V Roger Revelle in the region of the Cascadia subduction margin. The training cruise is funding by the NSF Early Career Seismic Chief Scientist program. Along with 18 other graduate students, post-docs, and professors, Schottenfels is learning to design and execute a research expedition, and acquire and process marine seismic data. She is interested in using the seismic data from this cruise to understand the geology of the Cascadia subduction zone, and how large earthquakes can occur.
