SMU and other members of a scientific consortium prepare for installation of the Dark Energy Spectroscopic Instrument to survey the night sky from a mile-high mountain peak in Arizona As part of a large scientific consortium studying dark energy, SMU physicists are on course to help create the largest 3-D map of the universe ever [...]
SMU study finds earthquakes continue for years after gas field wastewater injection stops
Exploring the mysteries of the universe: Reality in the Shadows
Long ago, sort of, scenes from Star Wars triggered a child's imagination, so that today it's informed one of his research goals as a chemist.
For 300 million years faults showed no activity, and then wastewater injections from oil and gas wells came along. Study authors took a different approach in the new work — they hunted for deformed faults below Texas.
The Washington Post covered the landmark earthquake research of a team of SMU geophysicists led by SMU Associate Professor Beatrice Magnani in the SMU Department of Earth Sciences.
Study by Beatrice Magnani, USGS and other SMU scientists shows recent seismicity in Fort Worth Basin occurred on faults not active for 300 million years.
The CW33 TV interviewed SMU physics professor Jodi Cooley about the capers afoot in celebration of International Dark Matter Day.
