Near-Surface geophysics research in the Keating laboratory focuses on using geophysical methods to image the near-subsurface and understand processes occurring in this region. Applications of the research span critical zone science, hydrogeophysics, cryosphere geophysics, biogeophysics, and soil science. The primary geophysics method that we use is nuclear magnetic resonance, but we also apply seismic refraction, electrical, and magnetic methods.
Dr. Keating's projects in geoscience education focus on diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives to engage
students from groups historically underrepresented in the geosciences.
