The Harvard Seismology Group carries out a broad range of projects with topics including mapping the interior of the earth, characterizing the seismic sources and global seismicity. The seismology group includes faculty, research associates, and students from the Department of Earth & Planetary Sciences.

Because of the multidisciplinary nature of the seismological study of Earth, there are several research groups at Harvard that overlap in pursuits. These seismology-related topics are investigated by Professor Miaki Ishii, Professor James R. Rice and Professor Emeritus Adam Dziewonski. For more information about the projects each of these groups is involved with, please see their individual pages, as well as our research projects page.
