Postdoctoral Research Fellow - Climate change - Cost/Benefit of Adaptation (2016 - 2018)$330,000

Improving Signal Detection Range of Active Seismic Monitoring in Mines (2015 - 2018)$436,570
Description
This project will develop a new generation of sensors that will process incoming seismic waves from an activesource to accurately estimate the properties of underground rock mass in real time. This will lead to safer miningoperations that will decrease the number of injuries and deaths. A probability graph model will be used to fusemeasurements from different sensors to produce more accurate estimates of the rock mass. A new low-costseismic source will excite large areas of rock mass for continuous monitoring of the changes in stress and fracturedensity caused by mining. This will lead to methodologies that will significantly improve mining operations andincrease Australias productivity in the mining sector.
