BiographyResearch theme: Energy, Environment
Research discipline: Biogeoscience
- The geology of active faults and earthquake potential of the Nankai Trough region of Japan. Geophysical imaging [3D seismic reflection and vertical seismic profiling, VSP] and drilling of stratigraphy and faults, as part of an Integrated Ocean Drilling Project [IODP].
- Compressional and extensional structures in the New Hebrides back arc. Seismic reflection and geomorphic expression of active faulting in an effort to explain the changes in structural style of the back arc.
- 3D seismic reflection analysis of geologic structures and of sedimentary features. There were several of these projects, all industry funded with in kind support.
