In this paper, we investigated model of thermochemical convection with the non-Newtonian rheology in the presence of floating deformable continents. In the course of the simulation, the supercontinent cycle is implemented several times.More“Evolution of stress fields during the supercontinent cycle”
This study is an attempt to determine potential tsunamigenic morphostructural nodes in mainland Greece using pattern recognition algorithms. The earthquakes that have produced local tsunamis in the region were confined to morphostructural nodes whose locations were found by morphostructural zoning.More“Local tsunamigenic sources in Greece, identified by pattern recognition”
He was a famous seismologist, a wonderful, kind, intimate person.>>>
At the high pressures and temperatures typical of the Earth’s interior, the brittle failure in accordance with the generally accepted Reid elastic rebound model cannot occur at depths greater than a few dozen kilometers. Nevertheless, earthquakes do occur at depths to about 700 km depth and some more.
In this paper, we outline the overview of the problem of intraplate seismicity and summarize our studies aimed at identifying potential earthquake sources in three regions located in the continental environments. We study the French Massif Central located within the West-European platform, the Gujarat area situated at the northwestern edge of the Indian shield, and northeast Egypt located in the northeastern corner of the African continent.More“Identifying Potential Earthquake Sources in Continental Environments”
The results of paleoseismological studies in the area south of the city of Murmansk are discussed. As the main seismogenic zone, a system of strike-slip and reversefaults of the NNW strike along the Kola rivervalley is identified here. Radiocarbon dating identified three episodes of high seismic activity: from 9500 to 10500 years ago, from 892 to 1182 and about 300 years ago.More“Late Glacial and postglacial seismicity in the Northeastern Fennoscandian Shield: tectonic position and age of paleo-earthquakes near Murmansk”
This paper analyses science diplomacy efforts to reduce disaster risks and proposes establishing national knowledge exchange centers (KECs) to help individual states adhere to their Sendai Framework goals.More“Science diplomacy for disaster risk reduction”
