Welcome to the Laboratory for Atmospheric Acoustics (L2A)
We are a part of the Institute of Geophysics and Planetary Physics and the Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California, San Diego. On the research side of things, we work in several different areas in infrasonics: source studies, propagation modeling, array processing, and wind noise reduction. On the operations side, we focus on operation/maintenance of two IMS arrays and three temporary research arrays located along the U.S. west coast. Central to the life of our lab is a healthy balance of theory, lab, computer, and field work in an environment that focuses on efficiency, quality, and enjoyment.
