Towards Near Surface Ground Motion Characterization in Oklahoma and Texas through Active- and Passive-Seismic Site Characterization- Alan Yong

Earthquakes, such as the 2011 M5.7 Prague, Oklahoma, and recent northern Texas M4 event, demonstrate the need for improvedunderstanding of site amplification and seismic hazards in the central United States. The intern will be trained by USGS scientists to use the state-of-the-art site investigation methods at seismic station sites in California before applying the methods in Oklahoma and Texas.

Regional attenuation in California in ground-motion modeling- Annemarie Baltay

The goal of this project is to contribute to our understanding of anelastic path attenuation in ground-motion prediction equations (GMPEs) by searching for correlations between seismic attenuation models constrained by 3D geophysical observations and \ ground motion measurements at individual stations.

Operational remote sensing on the verge of changing water resources management- Kyle Blasch

Have you ever thought that our nation’s satellites could be put to better use than watching you drink your fifth cup of coffee as you prepare for final exams? If so, then this is a project that you would enjoy. The hydrologic community is at a pivotal moment in the application of remote sensing into everyday decision making and we need you.

Groundwater Storage - Middle East / North Africa- Daniel Goode

The goal of this activity is to improve water security in the MENA region by accelerating ASR. This activity will accelerate adoption of ASR by applying and disseminating new methods for mapping and identifying high potential ASR locations using remote sensing, geospatial data, and hydrologic analysis.

Evaluation of the National Streamgage Network to Support Surface Water Characterization- Chris Konrad

How can our national streamgage network evolve to meet changing demands in the coming fifty years? This is an opportunity to explore the varied uses of the U.S. Geological Survey’s National Streamgage Network and understand how it can be used to support water management across the country and how it can be more effectively designed.

Yellowstone National Park Integrated Studies- JoAnn Holloway

The goal of the project supported by the internship is to evaluate mineral assemblages in drill hole core collected from Yellowstone National Park using spectral methods, determine subsurface structures using electromagnetic methods, and to evaluate the distribution of rare earth elements and other trace metals associated with minerals using scanning electron microscopy and electron microprobe.

Extending subduction zone earthquake hazard assessments to risk- Nicolas Luco

Subduction zone earthquakes, can generate ground shaking that lasts several minutes. Typical earthquake risk assessments do not account for such long-duration ground shaking. Earthquake engineers and scientists at the USGS and elsewhere are colllaborating to change this.
