Allan (Al) R. Sanford, professor of geophysics, emeritus, at New Mexico Tech (NMT) passed away quietly at his home in Woodinville, WA on August 9, 2016. He was 89. Al was a pioneer in the recording and interpretation of microearthquake seismograms. For decades he was the leading authority concerning seismicity across New Mexico and within the Rio Grande Rift (RGR). He published numerous papers with graduate students and colleagues on the unique, high-amplitude reflected phases seen on Socorro-area microearthquake records.
