Alan L. Jones Computer Programs: Seismic/Eruption

Alan Jones, State University of New York at Binghamton

This site is the homepage of Alan L. Jones, of the State University of New York at Binghamton. Dr. Jones is interested in most earthquake-related topics, computer graphics, and computers in education. He has created various computer-based visualizations: Seismic/Eruption, Seismic Waves, AmaSeis, and Eqlocate. Seismic/Eruption is a program used to visualize seismicity and volcanic activity in space and time. The program displays earthquakes and volcanoes (data from the Smithsonian Institution Global Volcanism Program) and can show seismicity beneath the earth in three-dimensional and cross-sectional views. Programs can be downloaded from this page.

Part of the Cutting Edge collection. The NAGT/DLESE On the Cutting Edge project helps geoscience faculty stay up-to-date with both geoscience research and teaching methods.
