  Quantifying plate boundary segmentation using earthquake patterns in space and time
  Dr D Keir, Dr T Gernon
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Programme website. Project Rationale. The majority of the planet’s earthquakes occur along the boundaries between tectonic plates.
  Earthquake-induced instabilities in orogenic and volcanic environments
  Prof Y Lavallee, Dr J Kendrick, Ms L.N Schaefer
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Landslides and sector collapses are frequent consequences of tectonic earthquakes (Keefer, 1984, 2002), and represent an important secondary hazard, costing the economy ~$2 billion annually in damage and causing thousands of fatalities in the last century.
  The inner workings of the earthquake cycle: New insight from integrating geophysical observations and microstructures
  Dr L Gregory, Dr S Piazolo
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Slip behaviour at and around faults has been shown to be highly dynamic with variability in behaviour occurring both spatially and temporally.
  Rift fault activity and interaction at high resolution using geophysical and drilling data analysis from Greece and East Africa
  Prof L McNeill, Dr D Keir
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Project Rationale. Active continental rifts and the faults that control their deformation are the source of earthquakes and create some of our most important sediment sinks.
  Measuring earthquakes across the global continents from space and seismological observations
  Dr J Elliott, Dr T Craig, Prof A Hooper, Prof T Wright
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
The quantity and quality of satellite-geodetic measurements of tectonic deformation have increased dramatically over the past two decades improving our ability to observe active tectonic processes.
  Earthquakes and fault interaction in western Turkey (MILDONP19ARIES)
  Dr Z Mildon
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
Scientific background. Western Turkey and the eastern Aegean Sea is a tectonically active region of north-south orientated extension that forms a series of east-west trending graben structures, with a historical record of large and damaging earthquakes.
  Seismicity and Structure of Subducting Slabs
  Dr T Craig, Dr S Rost
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
This project aims to understand the distribution of seismicity associated with internal deformation in shallow subducting slabs. Subduction zones are well known to host the largest and most damaging earthquakes, but also a wide variety of smaller events.
  Failing under pressure: Exploring the frictional-viscous transition in cold subduction zones
  Dr A Fagereng
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Project Background. Subduction thrust interfaces host seismic styles ranging from steady creep to the most damaging earthquakes on Earth.
  Imaging the lithosphere of the British Isles using Virtual Deep Seismic Sounding
  Dr D Thompson
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Project Background. The Mohorovicic discontinuity, or Moho, is one of the most important boundaries within the Earth and is located at the transition from the crust to the underlying mantle.
  The application of Eurocode 8 Part1 around the world
  Prof C Georgopoulos
Applications accepted all year round
Eurocode 8 (EC8) is a state-of-the-art third generation code for seismic design. It includes well established concepts such as energy dissipation and new concepts such as displacement-based method.
