Tectonics of the Earth and planetary bodies; particular recent emphasis has been on global structure of the Earth, Venus, and Mars. Other interests include patterns of plate motions, and studying the transfer function between topography and gravity and geoid anomalies. Development and use of computerized data processing and control systems for ships, submarines, and airplanes with emphasis on gravity investigations. Experimenting with vector magnetometer observation for improvement of methods for determining magnetic secular variations.
