Thomas H. Goebel

Goebel is a Professor in Seismology at the Center for Earthquake Research and Information, University of Memphis. His research focuses on the analysis of human-induced earthquakes, fault structure and earthquake source processes. His work brings together laboratory experiments, analytical, numerical models and statistical analyses. Through his interdisciplinary work, he strives to tackle some key questions such as: How are stresses stored and released in the Earth's crust? What determines the expected size of an earthquake? How do faults and fault systems react to small perturbations e.g. as a result of fluid-injection or extraction? How are large earthquakes connected to micro-scale processes?
