Current Research InterestsBriefly, my research interests are earthquakes, Earth structure, volcanic seismology, earthquake hazards, i.e., anything interesting and/or useful that can be done with seismology. I used to design numerical methods for seismology, but now find data interpretation and hazard mitigation more rewarding.
My three students and three post-docs are conducting a range of studies - basin amplification for seismic hazard purposes, earthquakes under volcanoes, offshore seismicity patterns, earthquake early warning planning and execution, studies of the M9 earthquakes that are in the Pacific Northwest's past and future.
I'm currently involved in overseeing the seismic network, the M9 project, and implementation of earthquake early warning. I'm also involved in the eScience institute and Urban@UW. I've spend some time trying to establish permanent and realtime instrumentation on the seafloor off Cascadia.
These are my current activities, and I expect future studies will pop up reliably, given our reliable and bountiful influx of weird goings-on that tend to come to our attention from seismic data.

In the NewsI've given up on keeping a list of these, although I do pass some to comphelp for the department and college web pages.
Google "john vidale" OR "john e. vidale" for examples, I'm the only one with that name.
