  1. 1. Studies of Unusual Seismicity and Long Period Events at the Glacier Overlain Katla Volcano, Iceland

    Author : Kristín Jónsdóttir; Roland Roberts; Björn Lund; Göran Ekström; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Geophysics; Geofysik; Geophysics Specialized In Seismology; geofysik; med inriktning mot seismologi;

    Abstract : Earthquake catalogues are usually dominated by diffusive behaviour consistent with the Omori law of aftershocks. This is investigated in terms of waiting times, i.e. the time between successive events in a time-sorted earthquake catalogue. READ MORE

  2. 2. Seismic imaging of deep crustal reflectivity in Sweden and Iceland

    Author : Niklas Juhojuntti; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Geophysics; seismic; reflectivity; Moho; crust; signal; Geofysik; Geophysics; Geofysik; Geofysik med inriktning mot seismologi; Geophysics with specialization in Seismology;

    Abstract : Seismic reflection profiling, originally developed by the petroleum industry, was adapted to systematic imaging of deep structures some 25 years ago. In continental areas, these measurements often show weakly reflective upper crust and strongly reflective lower crust. READ MORE

  3. 3. Prediction of Strong Ground Motion and Hazard Uncertainties

    Author : Behrooz Tavakoli; Ota Kulhanek; Dieter Mayer-Rosa; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Geophysics; Disaggregation; Ground motion; Monte Carlo simulation; Seismic hazard; Geofysik; Geophysics; Geofysik; Geofysik med inriktning mot seismologi; Geophysics with specialization in Seismology;

    Abstract : The purpose of this thesis is to provide a detailed description of recent methods and scientific basis for characterizing earthquake sources within a certain region with distinct tectonic environments. The focus will be on those characteristics that are most significant to the ground-shaking hazard and on how we can incorporate our current knowledge into hazard analyses for engineering design purposes.

  4. 4. Plane wave electromagnetic measurements for imaging fracture zones

    Author : Lena Persson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Geophysics; Electromagnetic Measurements Fracture Zones; Geofysik; Geophysics; Geofysik; Geofysik med inriktning mot fasta jordens fysik; Geophysics with specialization in Solid Earth Physics;

    Abstract : Electromagnetic fields from distant radio transmitters interact with the resistivity structures in the earth. They can be regarded as plane-wave fields since their penetration depth is much smaller than their wavelength. READ MORE

  5. 5. High-Resolution Seismics Methods Applied to Till Covered Hard Rock Environments

    Author : Björn Bergman; Christopher Juhlin; Laust Börsting Pedersen; Ari Tryggvason; Ramon Carbonell; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Geophysics; High-Resolution; Reflection Seismics; Tomography; Nuclear waste repository; Bedrock; Sediments; Geofysik; Geophysics; Geofysik;

    Abstract : Reflection seismic and seismic tomography methods can be used to image the upper kilometer of hard bedrock and the loose unconsolidated sediments covering it. Developments of these two methods and their application, as well as identifying issues concerning their usage, are the main focus of the thesis. READ MORE
