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

We are currently investigating the tectonics of California, Colombia, Turkey, Pakistan, 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. 

Twenty six newly designed creepmeters with a range of  2 m and a resolution of  2 µm now operate on the Anatolian faults in Turkey, the Chaman fault on the western boundary of the Indian plate, and on the San Andreas system. Their 120db dynamic range is suited to capturing slow creep, triggered slip, afterslip and, significantly, co-seismic slip during an earthquake.  In each region Mw>6.8 earthquakes are anticipated and we plan to quantify the time history of the surface rupture accompanying each earthquake.

In the Himalaya we have examined historical records for earthquakes known only from fragmentary narratives and pre-instrumental accounts, in an an attempt to quantify their rupture parameters. For these violent earthquakes we have also attempted to investigate their rupture propagation directions in a quest to determine whether previous earthquakes influence the nucleation of succeeding earthquakes. No clear pattern has emerged, however, an important result of the study is an updated hazard map of the Himalaya (figure). The hazard is proportional to the product of the rupture area and the current slip potential, which in five of the fifteen segments examined exceeds 8 m. The scale right is proportional to the amount of slip accumulated since the previous major earthquake (rupture in black with date) which can now be released in a future earthquake. The segments are color coded to indicate the magnitude of earthquake that could occur today if segments rupture in isolation. Larger earthquakes will occur should contiguus segments rupture simultaneously. For example, the Kathmandu segment shows no potential for an immediate earthquake, but could be shaken by an Mw>8.4 earthquake should rupture extend into the segment from the west.
