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.

In 2014 and 2015, the Structural Geology group at EOS conducted seismic reflection acquisition in Nepal across the Main Frontal Thrust to constrain its geometry and kinematics.

We plan a reconstruction of late Quaternary environmental history of the Kallang basin, southern Singapore.

We plan a comparative study to test the feasibility of reconstructing hydroclimate and temperature variability during the past (MIS 5e) and current (Holocene) interglacials from marine sediment cor

We propose using geomicrobiology to overcome the primary issue in documenting prehistorical coastal hazards which is the faint distinction between storm and tsunami deposited sediments.

Our knowledge of past sea-level change is largely relying on high-precision uranium/thorium disequilibrium dating on fossil corals.

The marine geophysical data collected during the 2015 MEGA-TERA expedition provide a unique window into the near-trench structure of the Sumatran accretionary wedge.

Paramesh Banerjee, Director of the Technical Office at the Earth Observatory of Singapore, was elected as the new President of the Asian Seismological Commission on 1 August 2017.

All Eyes and Ears: Insights from a Seismo-Geodesy Study into an Underground Nuclear Test Site

On 3 September 2017, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (North Korea) conducted its sixth underground nuclear test at the Punggye-ri test site. In collaboration with scientists from Germany, USA, and China, my colleagues from the Earth Observatory of Singapore (EOS) and I published our findings in Science on 11 May 2018, revealing the complex physical processes associated with the nuclear test.
