John Shaw

John H. Shaw joined the Harvard Faculty in 1997, and leads an active research program investigating structure of the Earth's crust. Prof. Shaw's program in Structural Geology & Tectonics emphasizes: 1) studies of active faults for earthquake hazards assessment; 2) three-dimensional structural and velocity modeling for strong ground motion prediction, and; 3) development of new technologies for petroleum exploration and production. These efforts involve the use of modern geologic and geophysical data, including 3D seismic reflection surveys and multispectral remote sensing imagery. Prof. Shaw leads the Structural Geology & Earth Resources Program at Harvard, an industry-academic consortium that provides data, software, and support for research.
