Broadband earthquake seismology of SE Asia

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. The proposed works include systematic determination of earthquake focal mechanisms and depth, simulation of broadband ground shaking for scenario earthquakes in the Mentawai seismic gap, and determination of fault morphology using high-frequency waveform modelling of aftershocks from great earthquakes.
