Scope deploys thousands of seismic, GPS, and other geophysical instruments to study the structure and evolution of the North American continent and the processes that trigger earthquakes and volcanic eruptions.

"Vernon is also Principal Investigator on the ANZA broadband and strong motion seismic network. Since 1982, this network has provided real-time seismic monitoring capability for southernmost California, one of the most active seismic zones in the U.S. As part of this project, he is studying the physics of the earthquake source from local quakes. Vernon earned his B.S. from UC San Diego and his Ph.D. from Scripps."
