Stanford scientists use ocean waves to monitor offshore oil and gas fields
A technology developed by Stanford scientists for passively probing the seafloor using weak seismic waves generated by the ocean could revolutionize offshore oil and natural gas extraction by providing real-time monitoring of the subsurface while lessening the impact on marine life. View News Article (2015-01-29)

Great earthquakes, water under pressure, high risk
The largest earthquakes occur where oceanic plates move beneath continents. Obviously, water trapped in the boundary between both plates has a dominant influence on the earthquake rupture process. View News Article (2014-03-28)
