The major cause of sea-level change during ice ages is the exchange of water between ice and ocean and the planet's dynamic response to the changing surface load. Inversion of ∼1,000 observations for the past 35,000 y from localities far from former ice margins has provided new constraints on the fluctuation of ice volume in this interval. Key results are:(More)
Synthetic experiments are used to test the applicability of coda wave interferometry (CWI) as a means for estimating distance between sources of nearby earthquakes. Acoustic waves for 45 sources are propagated through a Gaussian random medium. A pair-wise analysis of resulting waveforms illustrates the applicability of CWI as a tool for estimating source(More)
Working with a large temporal dataset spanning several decades often represents a challenging task, especially when the record is heterogeneous and incomplete. The use of statistical laws could potentially overcome these problems. Here we apply Benford's Law (also called the "First-Digit Law") to the traveled distances of tropical cyclones since 1842. The(More)
Understanding lithospheric plate motions is of paramount importance to geodynamicists. Much effort is going into kinematic reconstructions featuring progressively finer temporal resolution. However, the challenge of precisely identifying ocean-floor magnetic lineations, and uncertainties in geomagnetic reversal timescales result in substantial(More)
The capillary pressure in a reservoir determines the saturation distribution, and hence the total in situ volumes of fluids (oil/water/gas). The accurate knowledge of the capillary pressure distribution is one of the primary factors that may be decisive in the reliable estimation of hydrocarbon reserves. The centrifuge procedure provides laboratory data,(More)
Perturbations in the source mechanism lead to variation in the coda and hence errors in separation estimates determined by coda wave interferometry. The assumption of identical source properties is a limitation of the estimates of source separation from coda wave interferometry. We show how a perturbation in the source mechanism between two identically(More)
