Integrative Geophysical Characterization of Crustal Structure in Central and Eastern United States is one of the four projects f

The geophysical characterization project, under leadership of Dr. Gordana Vlahovic (co-PI on CREST Phase II), is one of the four funded under the main CREST: Computational Center for Fundamental and Applied Science and Education at North Carolina Central University (CCFASE) initiative to provide the framework required for the strengthening of interdisciplinary research and education at NCCU. The research will be a collaborative effort between the Department of Environmental, Earth and Geospatial Sciences, the Center for Earthquake Research and Information (CERI) at the University of Memphis, TN and the Geography Department at Fayetteville State University, NC. The main objective of this project is to image the geological structure of the crust in the eastern United States with combined geophysical observations. However, the long term goals of this project are: 1) strengthening the capacity for geophysical research in the EEGS department at NCCU, 2) furthering our partnership with CERI and FSU, and 3) encouraging interdepartmental collaboration at NCCU, especially between EEGS and the Physics department. About $840,000 dedicated to the geophysics project over the five year period will each year fund one postdoctoral, two graduate and five undergraduate fellowships.
