Visiting Fullbright scholar Maria Kozlowska will be giving a talk titled “Effect of the coseismic static stress transfer on the seismicity in mines” this coming Thursday, March 19th, at 12:30 pm in room B31C.
Kozlowska is a visiting Fullbright scholar from Poland who has been working with Earth & Environment Research Associate Professor Rachel Abercrombie.
The article, “Stress Drops of Repeating Earthquakes on the San Andreas Fault at Parkfield,” has been published online and will be published in a later volume of the journal.
The meeting will take place from Wednesday April 30 to Friday May 2nd.
On Thursday May 1, Aderhold will be presenting a talk titled “Seismic slip distribution of large inter- and intra- plate oceanic strike-slip earthquakes.”
Then on Friday, Prof. Abercrombie will be presenting a poster titled “Improving stress drop measurements from EGF – scaling and stress release in the Darfield-Christchurch, New Zealand earthquake sequence.”
Prof. Abercrombie is also the co-author of two other presentations concerning earthquakes in Nevada and in New Zealand.

Department of Earth and Environment Research Associate Professor Rachel Abercrombie has been invited to speak today at the first of BU’s Earthquake Preparedness Exercises.
Abercrombie, a trained Earthquake Seismologist, will share her expertise with the BU Incident Command Response Team (ICRT) and other University and City officials as they run through BU’s earthquake response plan for the National Emerging Infectious Diseases Laboratories. The response plan, dubbed Operation Cerberus, will take place at the BU Biosafety Lab; similar exercises for the Charles River Campus and the Medical Campus will follow.
Although not on a plate boundary, the northeastern US still experiences earthquakes. The largest known earthquake in Massachusetts was a M6 off Cape Ann in 1755. More information about New England Seismicity can be found at Boston College’s Weston Observatory website.
