Volatile cycling and the thermal evolution of planetary mantle
The thermal histories of terrestrial planets are investigated using two parameterized mantle convection models for either Earth like planets and planets with no active plate tectonics. Using parameterized models of mantle ...
Kinematic analysis of the deformational structures on eastern Isla de Margarita, Venezuela
Because of its strategic location at the intersection of three regional trends, a kinematic study of the deformation on Isla de Margarita was undertaken to provide additional constraints for Caribbean plate tectonic models. ...
Finite-difference seismic wave modeling including surface topography
I present synthetics of seismic wave propagation near free surface topography. The velocity-stress formulations of both the full elastic and viscoelastic wave equations are used, and I have derived exact boundary conditions ...
Time-lapse imaging of fault properties at seismogenic depth using repeating earthquakes, active sources and seismic ambient noise
The time-varying stress field of fault systems at seismogenic depths plays the mort important role in controlling the sequencing and nucleation of seismic events. Using seismic observations from repeating earthquakes, ...
