Better disaster prediction for South East Asia

By • August 14th, 2015

Southeast Asia is a tectonically active region that sees many natural disasters such as tsunamis and earthquakes occur as a result of these specific conditions. A team of researchers led by Dr Erdinc Saygin from the Australian National University is using the power of the Pawsey Supercomputing Centre to employ advanced imaging techniques that willmore…

3D Seismic Imaging of South East Asia

By • February 18th, 2015

In this project, we will estimate seismic velocity structure of the southeast Asian crust and uppermost mantle using adjoint inversion of full seismic waveform data collected mainly in Australia, Indonesia and neighbouring countries. Adjoint waveform inversion is a technique developed over the past decade that achieves unprecedented resolution by utilising all if the information containedmore…
