Kurt Feigl's primary interest involves tectonic applications of geodesy. This topic includes measuring and modeling crustal deformation from earthquake faults, volcano activity, glacier loads, and fluid extraction. Geodetic measurement techniques include Global Positioning System (GPS) surveying, satellite radar interferometry (INSAR), and other remote-sensing schemes. Numerical modeling approaches include the finite-element method, parameter estimation by inversion, and analytic elastic solutions.
