Research Interests

I am a research scientist in CIRES with interests in earthquake, landslide, and volcano processes and their impact on society I use various terrestrial and remote sensing geodetic methods to capture the deformation of the Earth's crust, and engineering and historical investigative methods to quantify the damage they produce now, and have produced in the past several thousands of years. My current research includes four areas: quantifying limits to the storage of strain energy in the Himalaya, investigation of fault creep in Anatolia and California, global seismic hazards and the influence of corruption in the building industry, and tectonics of Colombia and the Caribbean.

Current Research

Past and Future earthquakes

We are currently investigating the tectonics of California, Colombia, Turkey and the Himalaya using various forms of crustal deformation instrumentation. Our work in Turkey is collaborative with Kandilli Observatory, Istanbul, where we have installed six borehole strainmeters and ten creepmeters on the northern and eastern Anatolian faults.  Creep occurs episodically in several locations as transient accelerations in slip that propagate along the fault at a few km per hour.  A seven-decade synthesis of photographic and  creepmeter data at Ismetapasa suggests that creep has slowed and shallowed replacing rapid afterslip that followed the 1944 Mw7.3 Bolu/Gerede earthquake. 

The newly devised creepmeters that operate on the Anatolian fault have a range of up to 4 m and a resolution of  6 µm and are thus suited to capturing co-seismic slip and afterslip.  We are upgrading California creepmeters with these sensors in anticipation of a future earthquake on the southern San Andreas fault.  Within minutes of the Mw=8.1 Mexico earthquake five of the new sensors recorded a few mm of triggered creep on the southernmost San Andreas fault near Bombay Beach. 

We have also been investigating seismicity triggered by other mechanisms.  For example, with Dr. S.E. Hough (USGS) we have calculated the stresses caused by early oil extraction procedures in California before secondary fluid injection extraction became common, and which were therefore accompanied by significant surface subsidence.  Our studies suggest that several moderate earthquakes in the Los Angeles Basin in the period 1930-1950 may owe their origin to oil extraction.

In another approach we have noted, as have several others, that global seismicity increases during periods minimum angular rotation (long length of the day).  Since minimum rotation can be identified from the angular deceleration time series some 5 years before it occurs,  it appears  possible to forecast global seismic hazards some 5 years in advance.  The plot above shows angular deceleration advanced 5 years, from a collaborative  article authored by Prof. R Bendick (University of Montana).
