Séminaires de Sismologie
Guillaume Ucciani / Viviana Dionicio
This is a weekly, one-hour session of information/reflection on seismic, tectonic and volcanic activity worldwide. It is based on a model already tested in other foreign universities including Berkeley. It is made of three parts: 1) A summary of the seismic activity in the previous week (based on the information available on the web) 2) "Geonews Talk": a more detailed discussion of a recent earthquake, volcanic crisis or any interesting geophysical event for which information is readily available. 3a) The presentation of a short article published in the recent peer-reviewed literature on seismogenesis, volcanism or tectonics. OR 3b) An introductory presentation on the ongoing research of the speaker. This week, we will have an overview of past and recent activities of Popocatepetl volcano by Guillaume Ucciani. Then, Viviana Dionicio will present her work on multi-scale imaging of the large subduction earthquakes combining back projection and kinematic modelling.
