Predition of compressive strength from point-load and moisture content indices of highly anisotropic, coal-bearing strata of the Illinois Basin (1983)
(2018-07-12)Recent advances in high-resolution multibeam bathymetric imaging have revealed step-like structures interpreted as cyclic steps, or sediment waves, along the bottom of deep-sea canyons and channel levees. These bed features ...
Studying subduction zone dynamics and continental evolution in South America using data-oriented geodynamic models (2018-07-06)Among all continental plates, South America remains one of the least explored regarding its geological evolution. This continent possesses the longest subduction zone, the second highest continental plateau and tremendous ...
Crustal structure beneath hi-climb seismic array in western Tibetan plateau from a generalized H-κ method (2018-04-24)Receiver function(RF) is commonly used for analyzing seismic waves generated at structural boundaries and imaging major interfaces of the Earth. The traditional H-κ method using grid search and RF stacking developed by Zhu ...
Understanding late Cenozoic western United States mantle dynamics and surface tectonics using forward-adjoint data assimilation models (2018-04-16)Understanding mantle evolution is essential for investigating many processes of the Earth’s surface and interior. A straightforward way to study mantle evolution is through mantle convection simulation. However, a ...
