A Physical Model for Widespread Near-Surface and Fault Zone Damage Induced by Earthquakes - Seismic observations indicate that material velocities at shallow depths decrease over a large area after large earthquakes. The reductions are widespread, and occur at distances of up to several source dimensions. A persistent low-velocity fault zone has also been documented extensively from seismic and geodetic observations, in which the velocity drops further after large earthquakes. Dynamic...

The project objective is to design a new interface that maximizes usability of digital image collections based off current methods utilized in sites such as ArtStor, Flickr, Panoramio.

A Distributed Acoustic Localization System using Clusters of Microphones.

submitted by: vishal.k

There currently are systems that can determine with relative accuracy the source of a sound, but these systems rely on a central unit to process all necessary calculations. The goal of my project is to explore a distributive method which generates vectors and computes the location cooperatively among all the clusters, and compare it to the centralized method in existence.
