NSF grants nearly $1 million to Penn State and CMU for environmental hazard study that uses fiber cables

A team of researchers from Penn State University and Carnegie Mellon University have teamed up to develop an environmental hazard monitoring and detection system that relies on existing, in-ground fiber optic cables.

It’s an effort that has the backing of the National Science Foundation, which awarded a $937,000 grant to research work that’s being conducted in Pittsburgh and led by Tieyuan Zhu, an associate professor of geosciences at Penn State.
