The 3-week data acquisition phase of Project Lake Azuei was completed at the end of January 2017.  
We are now in the data processing and interpretation phase which will continue through 2019.  As progress is made on this project, reports, presentations, images and publications will be posted here.  For the full Field Report, please go to the "FIELD REPORT" tab.
To highlight undergraduate student contributions to this project, we will display their work on a dedicated "STUDENT WORK" page of this site.

Above: Brute stack of multi-channel seismic profile 401, showing penetration of at least 150 m beneath the lakebed.  The sub-lakebed  structures have evaded detection in previous surveys.

Data processing and core analysis has begun!
