NRESS PHD PROGRAM DISSERTATION DEFENSE

PRESENTER: PAMELA MOYER

TITLE: UNDERSTANDING EARTHQUAKE RUPTURE PROCESSES: INSIGHTS FROM MID-OCEAN RIDGE TRANSFORM FAULTS AND SUBMARINE VOLCANOES

Join colleagues and friends for NRESS PhD candidate Pamela Moyer’s dissertation presentation.  Pamela is advised by Dr. Margaret Boettcher.  All are welcome. No RSVP necessary. 

More about Pamela’s research:

A key issue in earthquake science is to understand properties that control where earthquakes start, stop and spread, as well as their ground shaking potential.  Earthquakes recorded by seismometers on the seafloor at an oceanic transform fault and a submarine volcano serve as models to examine a variety of seismic behavior.  This dissertation explores how variations in fault zone properties (such as damage and pore fluids) affect earthquake rupture, and how this behavior reflects the evolution of fault strength through seismic and volcanic cycles.
