Speaker Bio
Professor David Eaton is a seismologist in the Department of Geoscience at the University of Calgary. He has received international recognition for his research on induced (human-caused) earthquakes and the lithosphere-asthenosphere boundary (base of tectonic plates) beneath continents. He has served as President of the Canadian Geophysical Union and the Eastern Section of the Seismological Society of America. Together with graduate students and postdoctoral fellows, his current work focuses primarily on advancement of research, education and technological innovations in microseismic methods and their practical applications for resource development. In 2007, he rejoined the University of Calgary as Head of the Department of Geoscience, after an 11-year academic career at the University of Western Ontario. His postdoctoral research experience included work at Arco’s Research and Technical Services (Plano, Texas) and the Geological Survey of Canada (Ottawa). He has recently published a textbook on Passive Seismic Monitoring of Induced Seismicity.
