Lorenzo Colli wins "Best SAGA Student Paper Award" at the 13th SAGA conference
At the 13th biennial conference of the South African Geophysical Association Lorenzo Colli presented a talk on the temporal changes in South Atlantic spreading rates and how they are linked to the history of uplift and subsidence of the surrounding continents via upper-mantle pressure-driven flow. For his presentation he received the Best SAGA Student Paper Award. [more]
28.10.-30.10. Visit of Dr. van Dinther (ETH Zurich)
We will welcome Dr. Ylona van Dinther for a research visit to Dr. Alice Gabriel working on the coupling of geodynamic and earthquake source modeling. She will present her latest research on Tuesday, 29.10. in a lunchtime seminar entitled: "Seismo-thermo-mechanical modeling of subduction zone seismicity". [more]
18.-22.11. Visit of Kenny Ryan (PhD candidate, UC Riverside, USA)
We welcome Kenny Ryan (PhD candidate, UC Riverside, Ca, USA) who will visit us from 18th to 22nd November. He will work together with Dr. Christian Pelties on dynamic rupture processes on complicated fault systems (like intersecting or even crossing faults) using SeisSol. On Tuesday 19th, he will present latest research results in the lunch time seminar at 12:30pm. The title of his talk is 'Modeling Dynamic Rupture with Implications for an Alaskan-Aleutian Megathrust Earthquake and Resulting Tsunami'. [more]
