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

To enhance effective learning, students are encouraged to spend approximately 100 minutes preparing for class and another 100 minutes reviewing class content afterwards (including assignments) for each class.
They should do so by referring to textbooks and other course material.
Students' course scores are based on reports and presentation.
