Gregory C. Steiner
B.S.B.A., University of Missouri, 1976.
Mr. Steiner came to CERI in 1978 as a project engineer whose
responsibilities included the design and installation of the permanent
seismic networks, MARSN and SARSN. During this time, he completed
the first of many in-house designs for seismic telemetry
The Center of Excellence program provided the means, and Greg
designed the hardware for the creation of CERI's first portable, 40-
station seismic array, PANDA. Following the success of this project, he
provided the improved design for PANDA II, a 30- station, high
dynamic range, portable seismic network. Versions of this hardware
are currently in use in the Memphis Strong Motion Network, and
planned for use in the southern Appalachian area.
Current projects include the design and network planning for the 80
station Integrated Seismic Instrumentation System (ISIS), and a 15
station broadband digital array which will be permanently deployed
in the New Madrid seismic zone.
Mr. Steiner's primary interest lies in the area of low noise, low
power, analog, and digital system design, with a focus on simplicity,
ruggedness, and low cost.
