I visited LMU Munich from April 22 - 28, 2018 to work on several papers in preparation. On Friday, April 27, we also had a successful ASCETE meeting with collaborators from the TU München and the University of Hamburg, during which everyone presented their progress and potential new projects were discussed.
I had a crazy busy week at the EGU General Assembly from April 8 - 13, 2018. I had one talk and two posters; I convened 2 short courses (Geodynamics 101 and Seismology for Non-Seismologists); I had several meetings; and I blogged for the EGU GD blog. All in all it was a great week and I can't wait for next year!
The article on the geophysical mission 'Hesperos' to Venus (a result from the Summer School Alpbach 2014) was accepted with major revisions in Advances in Space Research in 2016, but due to the unavailability of the team to work on the revisions, we had to withdraw it. However, it is now available on arXiv!
The ORCHID team met at the University of Texas at Austin from March 4 - 9, 2018. The aim was to work towards a paper on our fault throw - intermediate depth seismicity project. We finalised our database and made a detailed paper setup and plan with a (very) tentative submission date around September.
I organised and attended the 2nd ASCETE workshop on coupling earthquakes and tsunamis from January 30 - February 2, 2018. We went to Berghotel Sudelfeld in the small, picturesque village Bayrischzell in Germany (approximately 1.5 hours south of Munich). I organised the workshop together with ... Read more
I attended the workshop 'Frontiers in Studies of Earthquakes and Faults' at SUSTech in Shenzhen, China from November 27 - December 1, 2017. Many good scientists were attending the conference, so it was a perfect opportunity to get to know these famous professors and show them my own work. During my ... Read more
I tried my hand at a Geodynamics 101 post! It appears that weak seeds are still quite relevant today, so I adapted parts of my guided research into this blog post. I discuss the several methods used to initiate deformation in numerical models of the lithosphere and whether or not this influences the model evolution.
I visited LMU Munich for the third time from October 9 - 13, 2017 in order to work on the coupling of the STM method and SeisSol with Alice-Agnes Gabriel and Stephanie Wollherr. We managed to book some progress and are currently trying to determine the final model for the coupling paper.
The proposal for the continuation of our CIDER project ORCHID will be funded! This means that we will be able to meet for a week in Austin, Texas early 2018 to polish and finalise our results, and write the first draft of the paper (to be submitted late spring 2018).
