I’m currently working at the Infrasound Lab (ISLA) of the University of Hawaii. At ISLA we study infrasound (sound with frequencies below human hearing) that can propagate thousands of kilometers through the atmosphere. We monitor and maintain permanent microbarometer stations on Hawaii, Palau, and Diego Garcia; as well as portable stations in other parts of the world. At ISLA our primary objective is to operate these permanent microbarometer stations as part of the International Monitoring System (IMS) of the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban-Treaty Organization (CTBTO). These stations can also record natural infrasound signals from volcanoes, bolides, surf, the ocean, and any other large magnitude disturbances in the atmosphere. My colleagues and I are developing software, advances in instrumentation, and signal generation. We also process and interpret data from our stations.
