Mapping active faults using 3D ground-penetrating radar and 2D and 3D high-resolution reflection seismology: Examples from New Zealand
Presented by Alan G. Green
Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH)
Alan Green completed his studies at British universities before moving to Canada in 1973. After five years as assistant professor of Geophysics at the University of Manitoba, he accepted an invitation to become Head of Lithospheric Geophysics at the Geological Survey of Canada. During his 19 years in Canada, he further developed and applied seismic reflection methods in investigations of the continental crust, studies associated with nuclear waste disposal, and mineral exploration. He helped initiate and manage the internationally recognized GLIMPCE and LITHOPROBE geoscience programs. Since 1992, he has been professor of applied, engineering, and environmental Geophysics at ETH (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology) in Switzerland. He currently directs a multidisciplinary group dedicated to developing and applying high-resolution geophysical techniques for resolving diverse engineering and environmental problems. He has co-authored more than 180 publications in international journals; 34 of his papers have appeared or shortly will appear in GEOPHYSICS, including one that received the "2004 Best Paper in GEOPHYSICS Award". Among the awards he has received are an Honorary Doctoral Degree from the University of Uppsala, Membership of Academia Europaea, Honorary Professor at the China University of Geosciences, and the Mueller Medal of the European Geoscience Union.
