The CRC "Scaling Cascades in Complex Systems" seeks to develop adequate modelling techniques, by means of which the target variables of the respective simulation can be calculated efficiently.

MAule eaRthquake: Integration of Seismic Cycle Observations and Structural investigations. The 2010 Maule earthquake (Mw=8.8) was the first megathrust event for which a large amount of high-quality data is available for all stages of the seismic cycle and thus is a unique opportunity to deepen our understanding of the geodynamic processes that are involved in earthquake processes.

Seismotectonics of the Tajik-Afghan basin and western Pamir

The multi-disciplinary Tien Shan - Pamir Geodynamic program (TIPAGE) aims to exploit the Pamir, the western part of the Pamir-Tibet-Himalaya orogenic system, to address key questions in the geodynamics of continental collision and subduction.

Adriatic Lithospheric Investigation

During a seismic cycle permanent upper plate deformation may be attained, which can be preserved in the geological record. Accumulation of permanent deformation over many seismic cycles may result from transient deformation related to the interplate earthquake cycle, from creeping of faults in the upper crust and/or ductile flow of lower crustal material. We explore how the unbalanced deformation within an earthquake cycle can reflect the geomorphic expression of long-term deformation.
