Fault zone damage, nonlinear site response, and dynamic triggering associated with seismic waves
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2011-07-05)
My dissertation focuses primarily on the following three aspects associated with passing seismic waves in the field of earthquake seismology: temporal changes of fault zone properties, nonlinear site response, and dynamic ...
Delayed triggering of early aftershocks by multiple surface waves circling the earth
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-08-27)
It is well known that direct surface waves of large earthquakes are capable of triggering shallow earthquakes and deep tremor at long-range distances. Recent studies have shown that multiple surface waves circling the ...
Investigations of volcanic and earthquake-related deformation: observations and models from Long Valley Caldera, Northwestern Peloponnese, and Northwestern Costa Rica
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2011-07-08)
The advent of Global Positioning System (GPS) has revolutionized geodesy with high accuracy, fast speed, simple use, and low cost. This dissertation investigates three topics on volcano and earthquake-related deformation ...

A seismic spectral discriminant for reservoir induced earthquakes
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 1979)
Early aftershocks of the Mw7.9 Wenchuan earthquake in China on 2008/05/12
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2008)
On 2008/05/12, the disastrous Mw7.9 Wenchuan earthquake ruptured ~250 km along the Longmenshan thrust belt along the Longmenshan thrust belt that bounds the Tibetan plateau and the Sichuan basin [Burchfiel et al., GSA, ...
