WELCOME TO THE EXPEDITION!

WE ARE A TEAM OF SCIENTISTS SET OUT TO IMAGE THE 3D INTERNAL STRUCTURE OF AXIAL VOLCANO IN THE NE PACIFIC OCEAN.

Please follow our updates and social media, get to know our scientists, and learn about this fascinating deep-sea volcanic system!

Thanks for joining us, the Axial3D Team!

Meet the Science Party! Matthew Griffiths

WHERE ARE YOU BASED?
I am in between; I have finished my Masters, and am starting my PhD this fall. I'm based in Ottawa, Canada with Carleton University and the Geological Survey of Canada.

WHAT IS YOUR AREA OF RESEARCH?
Geophysics: The combination of physics, going outside and treasure hunting I guess make it the most fun activity. I'm particularly interested in geophysical characterization of groundwater.

WHAT IS A FIRST TIME FOR YOU ON THIS EXPEDITION?
Being this far away from shore.

WHAT ARE YOU EXCITED TO LEARN/DISCOVER?
I'm quite excited to learn about the surveying equipment: What the source and streamers are like; how they are attached / deployed. Then I'm also excited to see some 3D processing.

WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOVE GEOSCIENCE?
To elaborate on my research interest, I really like when mathematics describes nature and the understanding that comes with it. This is true for most scientific disciplines, but what makes marine/geoscience special is the scale of the subject. The subject (be it the ocean or geology) is on tangible scales we experience and see in the everyday. Whereas subjects like quantum physics / astrophysics are either too small or too far away.

TELL US SOMETHING ABOUT YOURSELF.
I am an excellent multi-tasker; I rarely watch a movie without sleeping.

  1. The graphics effortlessly adapt to your mobile screen no matter make or model. We tried half in} on iPhone 7s, Samsung Galaxy 제왕카지노 s10 and Huawei p30 without any points. The navigation menu on the underside of the screen is nice for easy entry to games, chat features and live help. Lastly, Jackpot City has a live casino that’s out there to all gamers in India. Unlike the rest of|the the rest of} the games that had been developed by Microgaming, the Jackpot City live casino is run by Evolution Gaming.
