BU earthquake science well represented at AGU

Research Assistant Professor Rachel Abercrombie, and Assistant Professor Christine Regalla, and PhD student Emily Schottenfels are attending this month’s Fall AGU Meeting to present their work, interact with their colleagues and catch up with the latest research in Geophysics.

Together they are co-authors on 10 presentations, working with colleagues and students from a variety of American and international institutions. Rachel’s work focuses on earthquake source parameters of events in a variety of tectonic conditions, including the San Andreas fault in California, induced seismicity in Oklahoma, and oceanic transform faults. Christine’s group is working on finding active faults in Cascadia and imaging the subduction zone in the region of the 2011 M9 destructive Japanese earthquake and tsunami.
