2016 AGU Fall meeting

Although, this year I will not attend San Francisco, CA, USA for the annual Fall meeting of the American Geophysical Union. I would like you to draw attention to our work to be presented: On Tuesday, Tim Wright (Leeds) will present on my behalf our latest results and developments for LiCSAR (a system to automatically […]

The M6.2 Accumoli earthquake, central Italy

A magnitude 6.2 (Mw) earthquake struck Central Italy, approximately 45 km North of the town of L’Aquila where a destructive magnitude 6.3 earthquake occurred in April 2009.   The earthquake occurred at 10 km depth on a crustal fault in the Apennine region in central Italy. The relatively shallow depth of the earthquake has meant […]

Observando los volcanes desde el espacio

Con una cotidianidad pasmosa nos hemos llegado a acostumbrar a mirar el televisor cada día después de las noticias, y ver una perpectiva, inusual, de otro mundo, uno que nunca hemos observado desde ese punto de vista, pero que sin embargo reconocemos con facilidad. Somos capaces de identificar sin dificultad las líneas continentales, las masas […]

3D-DEF code and manual/tutorial (.pdf)

Recently, I encountered a ground deformation problem where the slip along a particular fault seems not partitioned (distributed) as usual. Most of the elastic dislocation codes assume that slip partitions about half of the slip on one side block (hangingwall) and the other half along the other block (footwall), e.g., the popular Okada codes. These […]
