Ninfa L. Bennington, Ph.D.

I am a volcano seismologist at the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory. Broadly, I am interested in developing new seismic methods as well as applying more standard seismic techniques to clarify magma storage and transport at active volcanic systems. Part of this work centers on developing real time forecasting tools for identifying when a volcano is entering into or moving out of a period unrest.
