A Singaporean Survivor's Tale of the Lombok Earthquakes

On Sunday (29 July 2018), I learnt about the strong 6.4-magnitude (M) earthquake in Lombok, Indonesia. As we have friends living there, I wanted to visit to see what aid we could organise for the people there. So my husband and I went to Lombok with some friends, and we linked up with other humanitarian aid groups to visit the Sembalun area, which is about 1,000 metres above sea level, at the foothills of Mount Rinjani, one of the most scenic volcanoes in the world.

The final goal of the on-going three-year project is to develop a process-based, coupled hydrodynamic and morphological model for simulating sediment transport and deposit under tsunami waves.

To better understand the earthquakes and associated tectonic setting and ground shaking, we propose to study earthquakes in Southeast Asia, the most seismically active region on the earth, with a s

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.

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.
