Short Biography

Dzurisin is a staff member at the USGS Cascades Volcano Observatory in Vancouver, Washington. His research specialty is volcano geodesy—the science of how and why volcanoes deform in response to magmatic, tectonic, and hydrothermal processes occurring beneath them. Dzurisin uses various geodetic techniques, including leveling, GPS, and radar interferometry (InSAR) to study volcano deformation in the Cascade Range, Aleutian volcanic arc, Hawaii, and Yellowstone. He is an author of more than 100 scientific publications, including the book Volcano Deformation: Geodetic Monitoring Techniques, published by Springer-Praxis in 2007.

Image of Current Focus for Volcano Geodesy

Dzurisin’s research is directed toward understanding volcanic processes using various geodetic techniques, including leveling, the Global Positioning System (GPS), and satellite interferometric synthetic aperture radar (InSAR). His study areas include Mount St. Helens, Washington; the Three Sisters volcanic center, Oregon; other volcanoes in the Cascade Range; the Yellowstone caldera, Wyoming; and the active volcanoes of the Aleutian arc, Alaska.
