Research output: Book/ReportBook editingScientific


The seismoelectric method—the naturally-occurring coupling of seismic waves to electromagnetic fields—can provide insight into important properties of porous media. With a variety of potential environmental and engineering uses, as well as larger scale applications such as earthquake detection and oil and gas exploration, it offers a number of advantages over conventional geophysical methods.

Seismoelectric Exploration: Theory, Experiments, and Applications explores the coupling between poroelastic and electromagnetic disturbances, discussing laboratory experiments, numerical modeling techniques, recent theoretical developments, and field studies. 

Volume highlights include:
Physics of the seismoelectric effect at the microscale
Governing equations describing coupled seismo-electromagnetic fields
Examples of successful seismoelectric field experiments in different geological settings
Current and potential applications of seismoelectric coupling
Noise removal techniques for seismoelectric field measurements
