In the first half of the class, I will summarize recent studies on several topics on subduction-zone dynamics. Then, students will select papers about seismic and volcano-tectonics and present the results in the paper.
Understand seismic heterogeneity in the Earth.
subduction zone, earthquakes, volcanoes, magma, fluids, seismic tomography
