Dr. Don Adams, Research Geophysicist, was recently welcomed to the EERC Geophysics team where he analyzes the subsurface using geophysical methods and applying advanced interpretation techniques to data collected in the field. These methods are being applied to support our clients in a growing number of EERC research projects for advanced resource recovery and/or carbon storage. His principal areas of interest and expertise include rock physics, seismic interpretation, interpretative seismic processing, 4-D seismic, and geophysical-geological data integration.

“This position is well suited to my interests,” said Don, who found that he could blend his interests in geology and physics in the field of geophysics. “The EERC fills a unique niche in the research community. I am pleased to contribute to its success.”

Originally from Freeland, Michigan, near Saginaw, Don lived in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula while attending Michigan Tech. Before moving to North Dakota, he also lived in Texas, Oklahoma, and California. An outdoor enthusiast, Don enjoys backpacking and hiking, often in northern New Mexico, southern Colorado, and Utah. He has a special interest in outdoor photography, primarily of mountain and desert scenery. He also specializes in taking photographs of birds and insects such as dragonflies and spiders.

“I am looking forward to getting reacquainted with Isle Royale and Lake Superior,” Don said, “and discovering new places in North Dakota.”
