What drives orogeny in the Andes
The Andes, the world9s second highest orogenic belt, were generated by the Cenozoic tectonic shortening of the South American plate margin overriding the subducting Nazca plate. We use a coupledExpand

Modeling of mineralogical composition, density and elastic wave velocities in anhydrous magmatic rocks
We use the technique of direct minimization of the Gibbs free energy of the 8-component (K2O-Na2O-Fe2O3-FeO-CaO-MgO-Al2O3-SiO2) multiphase system in order to determine the equilibrium mineralExpand

The numerical sandbox: comparison of model results for a shortening and an extension experiment
Abstract We report results of a study comparing numerical models of sandbox-type experiments. Two experimental designs were examined: (1) A brittle shortening experiment in which a thrust wedge isExpand

A new multi-sensor approach to simulation assisted tsunami early warning
Abstract. A new tsunami forecasting method for near-field tsunami warning is presented. This method is applied in the German-Indonesian Tsunami Early Warning System, as part of the Indonesian TsunamiExpand

Precise temperature estimation in the Tibetan crust from seismic detection of the α-β quartz transition
In the deep crust, temperature, which is among the key pa- rameters controlling lithospheric dynamics, is inferred by extrap- olation from the surface using several assumptions that may fail inExpand

Probabilistic tsunami hazard in the Mediterranean Sea
[1] Estimating the occurrence probability of natural disasters is critical for setting construction standards and, more generally, prioritizing risk mitigation efforts. Tsunami hazard in theExpand

Mechanism of the Andean Orogeny: Insight from Numerical Modeling
The Andes were formed by Cenozoic tectonic shortening of the South American plate margin overriding the subducting Nazca Plate. Using coupled, thermo-mechanical, numerical modeling of the dynamicExpand

Enhanced GPS inversion technique applied to the 2004 Sumatra earthquake and tsunami
[1] Since the devastating earthquake and tsunami in 2004 offshore Sumatra, many source models have been put forward. Recent studies clearly show that modern GPS-processing could achieve highExpand

Quantifying different modes of the late Cenozoic shortening in the central Andes
Since the late Miocene, the two main segments of the central Andean high plateau, Altiplano and Puna, demonstrate different styles and magnitudes of tectonic shortening. Through numerical simulationExpand

Probabilistic Tsunami Hazard Analysis: Multiple Sources and Global Applications
Applying probabilistic methods to infrequent but devastating natural events is intrinsically challenging. For tsunami analyses, a suite of geophysical assessments should be in principle evaluated Expand
