In conversation with Dr Kyle Bradley, Principal Investigator at the Earth Observatory of Singapore
1. Can you tell us about your work on geohazards and the interesting parallels between in Southeast Asia and Alaska?
At the Earth Observatory of Singapore, I study the active faults of Southeast Asia and their associated geohazards. We are increasingly aware that rapidly changing environments can produce surprising hazards that can lie undetected for a long time until they are triggered by sudden events like earthquakes or large rainfalls.
Recently we learned about a very interesting geohazard case in Alaska, where scientists have identified a potential tsunami that could possibly be produced by a landslide along the Alaskan coast. Here at the Earth...
