To better understand the earthquakes and the associated tectonic setting and ground shaking, we propose to study earthquakes in SE Asia, the most seismically active region on the earth, with a series of broadband waveform modelling tools.
Wei and his team are closely monitoring a section of the Sunda subduction zone that hasn't seen an earthquake in 200 years but is expected to rupture a large earthquake in the near future.
