Invited by State Key Laboratory of Geodesy and Earth’s Dynamics (SKLGED), Dr. Ding Min from Massachusetts Institute of Technology(MIT) visited Institute of Geodesy and Geophysics(IGG) and gave an academic report in title “Numerical simulation of the influence of seamount subduction and earthquake triggering process on large earthquakes in subduction zone” on Oct 27.
The report firstly introduced the time-space complexity of the subduction zone large-scale earthquake rupture process, and the time, the place and the reason of the subduction zone large earthquakes occur, which can provide important information for earthquake disaster reduction. Based on the numerical simulation results, Dr. Ding discussed the influence of seamount subduction and adjacent large earthquakes on the interfacial stress of the plate so as to explain the complexity of the large earthquake rupture process at different time scales, which is not only related to the geological background of the subduction zone but also influenced by the surroundings earthquake.
Dr. Ding received his Ph.D. degree from Massachusetts Institute of Technology(MIT) in 2015. She is mainly engaged in the study of lithospheric dynamics, the geology and earthquakes of the subduction zone, the formation of volcanoes and craters in conjunction with numerical simulations and observations.
Dr. Ding was giving the report.
