SAIDAN "Seismic and Aseismic Deformation in the Brittle Crust: Implications for Anthropogenic and Natural Hazard"

SAIDAN deals with the topics of seismolgy and fault mechanics.

Project term: 2018 - 2021

Funding: Hemlholtz Association

Young Group Leader: Dr. Patricia Martinez Garzon

PhD student: Stephan Bentz

Bentz, S., Martínez‐Garzón, P., Kwiatek, G., Bohnhoff, M., Renner, J. (2018). Sensitivity of Full Moment Tensors to Data Preprocessing and Inversion Parameters: A Case Study from the Salton Sea Geothermal Field. Bulletin of the Seismological Society of America, doi:10.1785/0120170203


Topics of the research group are:

(1) Generating a thorough, quantitative understanding on deformation processes ranging from aseismic slip to brittle failure in earthquakes.

(2) Characterizing precursory processes preceding the occurrence of large earthquakes in relation to both plate-bounding transform faults and reservoir engineering activities.

These topics are being investigated within two very different environments : Strike-slip plate boundaries and Fluid-induced seismicity
