Aron Jeffrey MELTZNER
Research Fellow, Tectonics Group
Aron MELTZNER is a geologist focusing on neotectonics. He is interested in aspects of earthquake cycles and fault behavior, addressing questions about long-term earthquake regularity and repeatability and fault interactions. His current research focuses on using coral microatolls off the coast of Sumatra to infer details of past earthquakes along the Sunda megathrust. He is also involved in paleotsunami projects in Sumatra, and in conventional paleoseismic trenching projects to infer past behavior of plate-boundary faults in southern California. He has a PhD in geology from the California Institute of Technology.
