Theme: Deciphering the structure of the megathrust in the Hyuga-nada region using data from dense OBS array
Host: Takeshi AKUHARA
Introduction: I’m an observational seismologist at Institute of Geophysics and Geomatics, China University of Geosciences. My primary research interests lie in understanding the dynamics and deformation of the Earth’s interior, and mostly, I dear with the ground vibrations excited by earthquakes or seismic ambient noise and map the crust and uppermost mantle structure. Before moving to ERI, I mainly focus on continental deformations of the tectonically active regions in China. During my stay in ERI, I would like to work closely with my host, Dr. Takeshi Akuhara, and pay attention to the deep structure of the Sea of Japan with data collecting from broadband Ocean Bottom Seismometers (OBS). Specifically, we intend to fully explore the potential of broadband OBS waveforms in imaging the deep lithosphere and asthenosphere, including the sharpness and depth of structural discontinuities. Hopefully our investigations would provide fine constraints to the evolution of the Sea of Japan. I also look forward to meeting more friends in ERI and we may have interesting interactions on each other.
