Professor David Eaton was appointed 2015-2020 as NSERC/Chevron Industrial Research Chair in Microseismic System Dynamics in the Department of Geoscience at the University of Calgary. Together with graduate students and postdoctoral fellows, his work focuses primarily on advancement of research, education and technological innovations in microseismic methods and their practical applications for resource development, with a secondary focus on the deep lithospheric structure of continents. In 2007, he rejoined the University of Calgary as Head of the Department of Geoscience, after an 11-year academic career at the University of Western Ontario. His postdoctoral research experience included work at Arco’s Research and Technical Services (Plano, Texas) and the Geological Survey of Canada (Ottawa). He has recently published a textbook on Passive Seismic Monitoring of Induced Seismicity. His work has been recognized by several major awards including the J. Tuzo Wilson medal from the Canadian Geophysical Union and a 2020 NSERC Synergy Award for Innovation.


Areas of Research

Microseismic Monitoring
Induced Seismicity
Distributed Acoustic Sensing
Physics-Informed Machine Learning
Lithospheric Structure
Interdisciplinary Education

My current research focuses on induced earthquakes, characterizing microseismic activity associated with enhanced hydrocarbon recovery, as well as seismicity and structure of the Earth’s lithosphere. These projects seek to develop improved technology for surveillance of hydraulic fracturing as well as understanding the architecture and geological evolution of continents.

I have developed and taught courses that include Introduction to Passive Seismic Monitoring of Induced Seismicity, Disruptive Innovation and Entrepreneurship in Geoscience, Responsible Development of Low Permeability Hydrocarbon Resources. I have also taught large classes such as Introduction to Geophysics and Natural Hazards.
