Matt Haney

I am with the USGS and Alaska Volcano Observatory in Anchorage, specializing in volcano seismology. My work involves research on the seismicity and structure of Alaskan volcanoes, volcano monitoring, and the acquisition and processing of data from the AVO seismic network. 

My research interests include volcanic tremor, low frequency seismic signals, seismic noise, infrasound, array processing, tomography, and submarine volcanism.
