Biography 2012 [1]

Tom Daley is currently Geophysics Department Head and works as a staff scientist in the Earth Sciences Division of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. He has been with Berkeley Lab since 1987. He received a Bachelors degree in Geophysics from the University of California, Berkeley in 1980 and a Masters degree in Engineering Geoscience from the University of California, Berkeley in 1987. He worked from 1980 to 1985 with Seismograph Service Corporation performing borehole seismic surveys and managing a district office in Ventura, CA.

Dr. Daley's research work is focused on the acquisition and analysis of borehole seismic data from field scale experiments. Problems addressed include continuous travel time monitoring to detect stress changes, monitoring geologic storage of CO2, characterization of fracture content and dominant fracture orientation in geothermal and oil fields, high resolution imaging of shallow surface materials, imaging fracture flow zones in contaminated aquifers, and geophysical characterization of volcanic tuff flows for nuclear waste isolation at Yucca Mountain.

Dr. Daley has been a member of the American Geophysical Union (AGU) since 1987, a member of the Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG) since 1980, the European Association of Geoscientists and Engineers (EAGE), and is currently on the SEG Council, the SEG Research Committee, and chair of the CO2 research subcommittee.

Research Abstract

Dr. Daley's research is focused on the acquisition and analysis of borehole seismic data from field scale experiments. Problems addressed include:

  • Continuous travel time monitoring to detect stress changes.
  • Monitoring of geologic sequestration of CO2, characterization of fracture content and orientation.
  • High resolution imaging of shallow surface materials; Imaging fracture flow zones in contaminated aquifers.
  • Integrated geophysical characterization of volcanic tuff flows for nuclear waste isolation at Yucca Mountain.
