Prof. Yan Hu and three Ph.D. students, Siyuan Yang, Jian Zhang, Kai Wang from GRC group attended the international AOGS (Asia Oceania Geosciences Society) 20th annual meeting from July 30th to Aug. 4th. This was the first international conference for the group since the pandemic of the COVID-19. During the conference, we gave oral presentations for the research on rheological heterogeneities in the lower crust in eastern Tibet, and postseismic deformation processes of large earthquakes in Sumatra, New Zealand, and Himalaya collision zone. We also had collaboration discussions with Prof. Emma Hill in Nanyang Technological University (NTU) for the work on Sumatra, and Prof. Jeffrey Freymueller in Michigan State University (MSU) for the work on Alaska. On Aug. 3th, Siyuan Yang, Jian Zhang and Kai Wang, together with other Chinese scholars, were invited to visit NTU. We toured faculties at the Earth Observatory of Singapore (EOS) of NTU, and discussed scientific issues related to subduction zones with faculty members.
Jian Zhang presented his work on modeling the postseismic deformation of the 2015 Gorkha earthquake.
Siyuan Yang presented her work on 2004, 2005 Sumatra earthquakes.
Kai Wang presented his work on the 2016 Kaikoura earthquake.
