Research Areas

Dr. Wdowinski research interests include the general areas of natural hazards, tectonics, wetland hydrology, climate change, and sea level rise. His work has focused on the development and usage of space geodetic techniques, mainly GPS and InSAR, that can detect very precisely small movements of the Earth’s surface. He successfully applied these technologies to study tectonic plate motion, earthquakes, land subsidence, sinkholes and environmental phenomena, such as climate change, sea level rise, and wetland surface flow.
