Project: Assessing the state of in-situ stress, deformation properties and consolidation processes in marine clay-rich sediments at the Nankai accretionary prism
2010 (English)Other (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
Some of Earth's largest earthquakes occur along décollement faults that separate overriding plate and accretionary prism from subducting plate. I conduct a collaborative experimental study to assess in-situ stress state, deformation properties, and consolidation processes in clay-rich sediments from the Nankai accretionary prism (NAP), SE Japan. Some of these sediments will ultimately pass into the seismogenic zone where earthquakes are generated.
