Geoscience Seminar: Revathy Parameswaran
Date: Oct. 1, 2021
Time: 11:45 a.m.
Revathy Parameswaran will present “Seismic Failures and Evolution of Stresses on Conjugate Faults Systems: A Case Study from South Iceland.”
Seismic ruptures on conjugate faults are prominent along active rift-transform systems. Major recorded earthquakes in south Iceland have ruptured NS-trending faults crossing the dominant EW-oriented South Iceland Seismic Zone. However, the western end of the SISZ deviates from this. Using the 1998 M5.1 Hjalli-Ölfus earthquake Revathy suggests that stress variations are influenced by Hengill volcanoinflation-deflation episodes.
The presentation starts at 11:45 a.m. on Friday, Oct. 1, via Zoom.
