Researchers remove a seismic logging instrument from a borehole at Shale Hills.

A Penn State-led research team found that seismic waves can "see" chemical reactions occurring deep below ground and help to protect groundwater resources. Pictured, Brad Carr, University of Wyoming, removes a logging instrument from a borehole in the valley floor at Shale Hills. Looking on are Penn State graduate student Andrew Shaughnessy (left) and postdoctoral scholar Xin Gu (right).
