Tectonics

Southeast Asia and its surrounding regions have many large, active faults, as well as a number of major subduction zones that are responsible for some of the world’s biggest earthquakes. The researchers in the tectonics group aim to increase understanding of the region’s tectonic and seismic behaviour, to identify signs of previous earthquakes and tsunamis, their size, their recurrence, and their potential for destruction, as a basis for more reliable forecasting.
