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

Measuring the Strength of Crustal Rocks From Outer Space

New research from the Earth Observatory of Singapore (EOS) recently published in Science introduces an exciting new technique for discerning the strength of rocks in the earth’s continental lower crust. The method we developed allows us to make inferences about the properties of rocks where they are buried. Our study also provides the first low-frequency tomographic image of rheological properties beneath Kyushu, Japan. Tomography allows us to see the internal properties of the rock, section by section.
