Projects | Observational Seismology - Wei Shengji

We propose to continue our paleoseismological and multi-lateral, international collaborations on active fault behaviors in Myanmar. In 2018, our three major goals are to (1) continue paleoseismological investigations of the central Sagaing fault by analysis of airborne LiDAR and UAV surveys and... Read more

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 series of broadband waveform modeling tools. The proposed works include systematic determination of... Read more

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. Here we propose to revisit the tsunami earthquakes in Sumatra (2010 Mw7.8) and Java (1994 Mw7.8, 2006... Read more

We have used the broadband EOS-Myanmar network waveform data to refine earthquake location and crustal to lithosphere scale velocity structure especially for the central Myanmar basin. We have built our real time data processing system to report earthquakes. In addition, we have addressed... Read more
