About Mike

Mike KendallThe Group

Mike’s group is part of the Bristol Geophysics Group¬†which collaborates with most other groups in the School, working on a broad range of themes.

Exploration seismology

Mike’s primary interests lie in methods for using measurements of seismic anisotropy to characterise reservoirs. Another key area of research is in passive seismic monitoring and microseismity:

Seismic experiments

Mike has led or been involved with seismic experiments in a diverse range of settings including the Canadian Arctic and the Afar depression in Ethiopia. Most of these experiments are collaborative efforts that include other seismologists:

Global seismology

Mike uses earthquakes as seismic sources to image the heart of the Earth and its boundaries:
