Lucia Gualtieri / William Frank
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, Lucia Gualtieri will speak about seismotectonics of the Italian Apennines. Then, William Frank will talk about low-frequency earthquakes accompanying non-volcanic tremor observed in Guerrero, Mexico.
