GSO faculty and scientists are internationally recognized through their leadership in scientific programs, the impact of their research, their positions of leadership for scientific journals and societies, and their scientific awards and fellowships. Links to laboratories and research programs with web pages are listed below.
Image: Tuning up the new FTIR system: a Thermo Nicolet iS50 FTIR bench spectrometer coupled with a Continuum IR microscope, for analysis of C-O-H compounds in natural and synthetic materials. The microscope is equipped with 250 µm and 50 µm MCT-A detectors, and has automated mapping capability. Website
Image: From a biodiversity study in planktonic microorganisms. A result of a population model simulating the effects 30 competing species. Coexistence for at least 1000 generations was observed in at least 90% of the simulations when there were initially at least 1000 individuals per species. No extinctions were observed. Website
Image: The traveltime sensitivity kernels for the head wave on the horizontal planes at depths below and above the interface that separates the low and high velocity layers. The green line marks the head wave ray path. The source is located on the left side of this figure. The negative (red colors) and positive (blue colors) values are so defined that a low-velocity anomaly located in the region of the negative kernels results in a travel time delay and the same velocity perturbation in the region of positive kernels leads to an earlier head wave arrival.
