After a relatively quick review process with two rounds of moderate and minor changes, the ORCHID paper on 'Intermediate-depth earthquakes controlled by incoming plate hydration along bending-related faults' has now officially been accepted in Geophysical Research Letters!
In a big collaborative effort of the ASCETE project led by LMU, we submitted the paper 'Coupled, Physics-based Modeling Reveals Earthquake Displacements are Critical to the 2018 Palu, Sulawesi Tsunami' to Pure and Applied Geophysics. The preprint is available on EarthArXiv.
At long last: I finally submitted my paper 'Modelling coupled subduction and earthquake dynamics' to Journal of Geophysical Research: Solid Earth! On Valentine's Day of all days. This really took a long time: I've been working on this paper for 3.5 years! You can find the preprint on EarthArXiv.
After a good and a bad review, we had to revise the ORCHID paper. Due to a lot of hard work from the data people, we managed to add some more data and refine the manuscript. After a last check yesterday, we sent the revised version back to the editor today. So now we wait again!
I won the AGU Outstanding Student Presentation Award (OSPA) 2018 in the Seismology Section! It was for my presentation entitled 'A coupled method using long-term subduction models to provide realistic conditions for dynamic earthquake models'. A near perfect score of 45/45, 44/45, 45/45 from the judges. Very happy!
The EGU Geodynamics Blog won a prize! The blog post by Luca Dal Zilio on his experience at a global science summit in Singapore won the popular vote for best blog post of 2018! I am very proud of the entire blog team! The whole team puts a lot of time and effort into the blog and it pays off! Read more about it here.
I attended the AGU Fall Meeting from December 10 - 14, 2018 in Washington DC, USA. I had a presentation about my coupling work and co-presented two posters of the ASCETE framework. I also had lots of interesting meetings, which made this year's AGU a success!
We have submitted our paper "Intermediate-depth earthquakes controlled by incoming plate hydration along bending-related faults" to Geophysical Research Letters! This is the first (PhD) paper with my name on it that has been submitted. Hooray for progress!
I visited the Tectonics group at Utrecht University from October 22 - 31, 2018 to work on the advanced manuscript of my coupling SC2DR paper. We had many fruitful discussions - also with the LMU Munich team via skype - and managed to book progress on my paper and several collaborations.
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.
