During the early evening of 28 September 2018, a magnitude-7.5 earthquake struck along the coast of northwestern Sulawesi, Indonesia. This region hosts a famous strike-slip fault system...
We propose to continue our paleoseismological and multi-lateral, international collaborations on active fault behaviors in Myanmar.
To better understand the earthquakes and associated tectonic setting and ground shaking, we propose to study earthquakes in Southeast Asia, the most seismically active region on the earth, with a series of broadband waveform modeling tools.
Rupture durations and other physical processes of tsunami earthquakes show strong variations and the underlying mechanisms of both earthquake and tsunami generations have not been understood.
We propose to install 30 broadband seismometers to cover the seismic gap on the Sagaing fault and the neighbouring region, which is one of the most populated areas in Myanmar. The seismic data will be used to better understand the seismotectonic...

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.
