Activity Narrative

Professor Olivia Walling presented the 2010 Engineering Writing Award to four UCSB freshman engineering students for their paper A Transfer Function for the Improvement of Seismic Data Collection. The students worked with strong motion data recorded at the nees@UCSB Wildlife field site, under the supervision of EOT Coordinator Sandy Seale.


​The UCSB Geotechnical Array monitoring program is jointly funded by Pacific Gas & Electric Company and the United States Geological Survey.

This site previously funded 2015 to 2017 by the NRC Contract#NRC-HQ-60-15-C-000, project title "Observations and Analysis of Geotechnical Data". And 2004 to 2014 by the Geoge E. Brown, Jr. Network for Earthquake Engineering Simulation (NEES) Program of the National Earthquake Hazards Reduction Program (NEHRP) of the National Science Foundation (NSF) under Award# CMMI-0927178.
