Rowena Lohman receives NASA grant

Rowena Lohman, assistant professor of earth and atmospheric sciences, has received a three-year, $318,000 grant from the NASA New Investigator Program to study subsiding deltas and sea level rise worldwide with space-based geodetic observations.

Lohman's primary research interests are: earthquake physics, satellite remote sensing, finite element modeling, ground displacements from human and natural causes, and the tectonics of southern California, Louisiana, the Cascadia subduction zone and Iran.

The NASA grant also supports the development of a new undergraduate course aimed at attracting the next generations of scientists who will use data from the diverse range of satellites to be launched by NASA over the next decade.
