On the evening of March 2, 2016, a magnitude-7.9 earthquake struck off the west coast of Sumatra, Indonesia. According to the United States Geological Survey (USGS), the epicenter of the quake was approximately 800km from Padang, West Sumatra.

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.

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

This project combines satellite imagery, advanced mapping tools, seismic monitoring and field work to investigate the behavior of the Sagaing Fault in Myanmar and improve seismic hazard predictions for Myanmar.
