Langue: Anglais

Remark: Next time TBD


Every 2 years


This course presents the classical and new approaches required to study the source mechanisms of earthquakes, combining theory and observations in a unified methodology, with a key focus on the mechanics governing fault ruptures highlighting novel developments in the field.



A project will be given half-way through the semester - in a team of 2/3 students. It is expected that the student(s) will have to code their solutions. The project delivery will therefore be a git repo.


earthquake, seismology, elastodynamics, inversion theory, faults
