  • IRIS Internship Program - PhD scholarships in Geophysics at Victoria University of Wellington
    several seismological projects of interest for which we would like to guide a PhD student 1 Studies of the Sept 4 2010 M 7 2 Darfield earthquake near Christchurch New Zealand An enormous amount of data has been collected and is being collected on this earthquake and its aftershock sequence We will be studying aspects including the anisotropic velocity structure in the region and time varying seismic properties related to the earthquake The project involves investigators in New Zealand and the United States 2 We are in the early stages of an international collaborative project involving investigators from New Zealand Japan and the United States to study the subduction zone structure under the Wellington region North Island New Zealand The aim is to determine the material properties of interfaces especially the subduction interface at various depths to try to understand the properties in a locked subduction zone This project will combine active onshore offshore seismic experiments explosions and airgun sources with passive earthquake recordings using short period and broadband recorders 3 Ongoing studies of the Alpine Fault in the South Island are continuing with recent success in funding for a project that will drill a 1 km deep borehole to

  • IRIS Internship Program - Weeks 5 and 6 ~ Sydney and “Where has the time gone?!”
    to answer her riddles correctly they would be executed So one daring prince felt like he was up to the challenge and when he got all 3 questions right the princess was mortified She begged her father to call off the marriage because she didn t want to marry him but he refused Seeing that the princess didn t love him the man decided to give the princess a riddle of his own If she could discover his name by sunrise the next morning he would allow himself to be executed so that the princess wouldn t have to marry him The ending was pretty interesting and I won t spoil it for any of you Back to the pictures here s one of me at the opera house in the day and here s the opera house at night The opera house itself was worth the trip to Sydney Of all the building I ve ever seen in my life I can easily say that this one was my favorite It s so much bigger than I imagined and it s perfectly situated jutting into the harbor on the edge of a peninsula Every direction you look while you re at the opera house you get a panoramic view of the city and its surroundings If you ever have the chance to see this building in your lifetime I 100 reccommend it On Sunday we went to the zoo and the aquarium We woke up at the crack of dawn to have breakfast with koala bears and we had the opportunity to get as close as physically possible to koalas without actually touching them in the past you could hold koalas but New South Wales recently passed a law making it so koalas can only be handled by zoo staff Here s the koala bear that I was able to get up close and personal with In addition to the koalas there were kangaroos tasmanian devils wallabies wombats kookaburras echidnas bandicoots buterflies snakes and many more interesting animals Here s a cassowary the third largest species of bird on Earth behind the emu and ostrich This is Rex He s a monstrous saltwater crocodile 5 meters long According to the zookeeper there was a community in Northern Australia where dogs were mysteriously disapperaing The locals suspected that it was a crocodile and they found out that the culprit was Rex A local crocodile farm caught Rex and they were amazed at how well preserved he was Crocodiles typically fight each other a lot and this leads to them having broken claws and teeth scratches etc Well when they found Rex he was completely injury free which meant he either a never got in any fights unlikely OR b he won every fight he was ever in likely The crocodile farm figured that a croc this good should be bred to produce strong offspring so they decided to put Rex together with a female crocodile in the hopes of getting

  • IRIS Internship Program - Weeks 3 and 4 ~ Abstracts and Sightseeing
    exisitng faults where the earthquake occured Now what does this all have to do with azimuthal coverage Well if you imagine a scenario where an earthquake occurs but all of the seismometers are in a thin 45 degree band to the south of the earthquake you most likely won t be able to produce a complete moment tensor solution since all of your first motions may very well be compressional or dilatational By having a complete or nearly complete 360 degree array of stations around your earthquake source you can accurately describe your fault plane geometery Forgive my digression so given the challenge of running this synthetic experiment I immediately got to work writing a code that would calculate the maximum azimuthal gap between chosen stations After a day or two of struggling with UNIX commands I finally wrote a code that I am very proud of The code takes a user defined input of 10 stations so I simply type which combination of 10 stations I would like to use as a trial retrieves their latitude and longitude from SAC files plots the array earthquake location on a GMT map calculates the azimuthal gap between each station and its nearest neighbor and outputs the calculated gaps along with the corresponding station names to an easy to read txt file Once I had this done I was quickly able to produce 20 different combinations of 10 stations to use in our synthetic experiment For the rest of the week I began running the Inversion with the chosen combinations and by fixing certain parameters of the inversion we ve been able to complete one inversion every 45 minutes or so This will carry on into the beginning of this week and then we ll go over the results of the synthetic experiment and decide where to go from there This past weekend was deserving of an entire blog post on its own but I ll just clump it all into one mega post while I m here On Saturday we celebrated India s Independence Day by having a curry cook off at Professor Tkalcic s house Ajay the other intern from India was the main chef for the evening and he prepared vegetables a chicken curry and a kidney bean curry The vegetables were quite mild the chicken curry was a little spicy and the kidney bean curry was deceptively hot The first few spoonfuls didn t seem to be too hot but then about 5 minutes later my face was sweating and I was reaching for any bread and water I could find Nita one of the graduate students from India prepared a fish curry which was just as hot if not hotter than the kidney bean curry We also had sides of naan bread roti bread and basmati rice to help offset the intense heat For dessert we had some Indian milk candies as well as some sponge cake filled with cream We had intended for Jo one of
