The largest earthquake ever recorded in an ocean happened in 2012 in the Indian Ocean; yet even with modern instruments, scientists have debated how this rupture occurred. This project will use new datasets to fully understand this earthquake.

The Shan Plateau, which passes through China and Myanmar, is not well studied; this three-year project that aims to determine earthquake recurrence intervals of two key faults will be invaluable to assessing hazard there.

Between 2015 to 2017, we developed probabilistic seismic hazard maps for Southeast Asia from a uniform set of databases, a series of ground-shaking scenarios, and an innovative approach for probabi
