On the evening of March 2, 2016, a magnitude-7.9 earthquake struck off the west coast of Sumatra, Indonesia. According to the United States Geological Survey (USGS), the epicenter of the quake was approximately 800km from Padang, West Sumatra.

The largest earthquake ever recorded in an ocean happened in 2012 in the Indian Ocean; yet even with modern instruments, scientists have debated how this rupture occurred. This project will use new datasets to fully understand this earthquake.

Between 2015 to 2017, we developed probabilistic seismic hazard maps for Southeast Asia from a uniform set of databases, a series of ground-shaking scenarios, and an innovative approach for probabi

This project combines satellite imagery, advanced mapping tools, seismic monitoring and field work to investigate the behavior of the Sagaing Fault in Myanmar and improve seismic hazard predictions for Myanmar.

This study sheds light on the structure (i.e. density distribution) and geometry of the volcanic conduit, which have so far remained elusive for volcanologists and hazard managers, and allows us to better understand Mayon's volcanic behaviour during phases of eruptive and non-eruptive activity.

This project will be the first to continuously monitor haze at its source in Indonesia and will provide a jumping-off point to investigate the impacts of haze on local and global environments.

We're kicking off Earth Science Week 2015 with a feature on haze in Singapore.
