- Postdoc Enrico Milanese joins the group!
- PhD student Yudong Sun joins the group!
- The preprint of my latest article on theoretical and numerical models of earthquake statistics on simple planar faults is available on the EarthArXiv: Complex earthquake behavior on simple faults.
Friday 26 - Invited talk at the Berkeley Seismology Lab.
Congratulations to PhD student Simone Mancini, whose AGU talk on Coulomb stress models of the 2016-2017 Central Italy sequence won him an Oustanding Student Paper Award!
- I’ll be at the AGU meeting in Washington, where I’ll give a talk on my recent paper about crack models of small repeating earthquakes. And don’t miss other presentations by my coauthors: Simone Mancini will give a talk on Coulomb stress models of the 2016-2017 Central Italy sequence; Eric Burton will present a poster on time dependent fault locking in Japan; Brittany Erickson and colleagues from the Community Code Verification Exercise for Simulating Sequences of Earthquakes and Aseismic Slip will present a poster with the results of the first benchmarks.
- I will attend the SCEC meeting (September 9-12, Palm Springs), the Workshop on Modeling Earthquake Source Processes (October 8-10, Pasadena), and AGU. My coauthors and I will present work on modeling of small repeating earthquakes, time dependent fault locking prior to the Tohoku earthquke, Coulomb stress models of the 2016-2017 Central Italy sequence, and a comparison of numerical codes simulating earthquake sequences. Stay tuned for details!
- invited talk at ETH, Zurich (Crack models to explain seismic cycles at different scales: small repeating earthquakes and vertical strike slip faults)
our article on testing Coulomb models for operational earthquake forecasting was described in an article in phys.org, reviewing recent progress of the Collaboratory for the Study of Earthquake Predictability.
the Seismological Research Letters special Focus Section on the Collaboratory for the Study of Earthquake Predictability (CSEP) is out! Check out our study on testing Coulomb models for operational earthquake forecasting.
