This study sheds light on the structure (i.e. density distribution) and geometry of the volcanic conduit, which have so far remained elusive for volcanologists and hazard managers, and allows us to better understand Mayon's volcanic behaviour during phases of eruptive and non-eruptive activity.

Summary of the tectonic setting and earthquakes in Sumatra, in particular, the Mentawai seismic gap.

Tsunami earthquakes are defined as the events that rupture near the trench and characterised by longer source duration and large tsunami waves following the earthquake.

This project will be the first to continuously monitor haze at its source in Indonesia and will provide a jumping-off point to investigate the impacts of haze on local and global environments.

We're kicking off Earth Science Week 2015 with a feature on haze in Singapore.

This animation shows the propagation of a tsunami in the Indian Ocean after an earthquake (Mw=8.2) on the Mentawai gap of the Sunda megathrust offshore Sumatra, Indonesia.

This animation shows the propagation of a tsunami triggered by a thrust earthquake of magnitude Mw=9 on the Manila Trench, Philippines.

Animation showing the precipitations over Singapore and the region during the tropical storm Vamei in 2008.

WRF Model showing precipitations from December 2008 to March 2009.

WRF model showing the daily precipitations from June 2008 to September 2008.

People–Coral–Mentawai is a documentary short about the methods used by scientists at the Earth Observatory of Singapore to develop a timeline of earthquakes in the West Sumatra region.
