All things must end! Also the ASCETE project! Today, a start has been made as Betsy Madden (our very brave first author) submitted the manuscript "Methods and Test Cases for Linking Physics-Based Earthquake and Tsunami Models" to Geophysical Journal International. The preprint is on EarthArxiv.
You know what else I did yesterday? I submitted my second first-author paper "Investigating global correlations between tsunami, earthquake, and subduction zone characteristics" to Tectonophysics! Let's keep our fingers crossed for a speedy review process! You can read the preprint now on EarthArxiv.
Did I tell you that my first first-author paper has been accepted? I had expected (dreaded) another round of revisions, but apparently it was already good enough! I got the proofs (I thought this would be the fun part. How wrong I was...) and submitted them yesterday. The final version can soon be found at JGR: Solid Earth.
After a lot of hard work, we have finally submitted Silvia Brizzi's paper! I am second author on this one and I am superproud of the paper Silvia wrote. We submitted it to Earth and Planetary Science Letters so let's see what they think of it!
I visited Munich from July 13 - 26, 2019 to start with a new project and help out a new PhD student there. We made a lot of good progress and it was really fun! Although I spent most of my time at LMU, I also visited TUM for a day. What a great place to nerd-out. I'll be back soon! Other great news: the Palu paper got accepted!
The Space Symposium / Alpbach reunion that I organised on June 7, 2019 was absolutely awesome. My to do list said "have the best time ever" and I did! This truly is a special bunch of people. I look forward to seeing them again in 5 years or (hopefully) a bit sooner. At the very least, we'll try to stay more in touch.
I found a new job! From January 6, 2020, I will start as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the University of Leeds! I will work with Tim Craig on intermediate depth earthquakes in subduction zones using both seismological observations and geodynamic modelling! I can't wait! Yorkshire here I come!
After struggling through some long days and nights, I managed to submit the revisions to my SC2DR paper on May 31st! And, as the cherry on the cake, the revisions for the Palu paper (by Thomas Ulrich) on which I am a co-author were also submitted on May 30. Now the wait begins again.
I am organising a Symposium on Geophysical Space Missions to Terrestrial Planets to celebrate the 5 year anniversary of the Summer School Alpbach! We have lots of great speakers lined up and many Alpbach Green Team people are joining for the reunion. You can find more information here. I can't wait!
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! You can find it here.
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.
