Mendenhall Opportunity 21-20: Rapid, robust characterization of earthquake uncertainties to unlock advanced monitoring, forecasting, and research

Earthquake monitoring forms the foundation of earthquake forecasting and research.  Although overall earthquake monitoring capabilities have become increasingly sophisticated in the past decades, methods of uncertainty quantification, key to earthquake forecasting and other applications, have remained primitive.  Currently, uncertainties in fundamental earthquake source parameters, such as location and magnitude, are not standardized and are usually derived only from misfit within a particular assumed model (also known as “model errors”) or from ad hoc, outdated approximations. Characterizations like these ignore significant sources of uncertainty and bias (such as from discrepancies between different magnitude types or errors in the velocity model) and often dramatically underestimate the total uncertainty.  Current shortcomings in uncertainty quantification significantly impair impactful products that build upon earthquake monitoring and the associated catalogs, and perhaps less obviously, earthquake monitoring itself. 


We seek applicants with strong quantitative skills.  Experience in seismology and/or statistics highly beneficial.

USGS Mendenhall post-doctoral opportunity in fiber optic and array seismology for earthquake early warning

 

The purpose of this Mendenhall Fellowship opportunity is to advance our understanding on fiber optic (FO) seismology for earthquake early warning (EEW) applications using array processing techniques.  A successful applicant should have the background and interest to pursue research on distributed acoustic sensing of earthquake waves with fiber optic cables and with traditional seismic arrays for EEW, focused on using seismic array processing techniques with either FO or traditional seismic arrays.  Array processing offers a robust method for determining slowness and back azimuth from arriving waves, which can help identify seismic phases and the earthquake source location at regional distances, in areas not easily instrumented with standard networks.

 

The ShakeAlert EEW system is live in California, Oregon, and Washington.  It relies on methods that are well optimized for dense seismic networks.  However, many of the largest earthquakes that could produce shaking within the ShakeAlert reporting region will occur outside of the well instrumented areas, such as offshore in the subduction zone.  Properly characterizing these earthquakes as quickly as possible presents one of the greatest opportunities for success in EEW, and more active research is needed to improve the methods used for these difficult to instrument regions. Method development can be done using a growing number of publicly available fiber optic and traditional seismic array datasets.  There will also be opportunities to design and collect new datasets during the term of the fellowship.

 

Even with the great potential for FO datasets to complement an EEW system like ShakeAlert, numerous fundamental questions remain. Among these, the most important ones include: how well dynamic strains in the fiber represent true ground strain, how signals within the FO array vary due to coupling and site effects, quantifying detection limits in frequency space, isolating seismic signals from natural and anthropogenic noise, the performance of FO systems in the near-field, optimal array geometries and sampling configurations, and differences in performance related to fiber engineering.

Institution: Piton de la Fournaise Volcano Observatory
Open Until: 2022-12-01

The Piton de la Fournaise Volcano Observatory of the Institut de Physique du Globe de Paris invites applications for a postdoctoral researcher in the framework of the ERC PRESEISMIC project. The postdoctoral research will focus on the use of machine learning techniques to improve detection and localization of earthquakes during seismic swarms.

Seismicity is currently one of the best tools to monitor transient aseismic processes such as slow slip on active faults or magma migration on volcanoes. However, given the large number of earthquakes to be identified and the increase in the number of available stations, automated approaches are necessary. The successful candidate will test the ability of existing deep neural network picking techniques to detect and locate earthquakes during active swarm episodes observed on volcanoes and on active faults. As a first application case, we intend to analyze pre-eruptive volcano-tectonic swarms at Piton de la Fournaise volcano to characterize the spatio-temporal properties of magma migration in the volcanic edifice. Funding is guaranteed for 18 months starting at the end of 2022 or early 2023.

A recent Ph.D. in Geophysics (defended less than two years ago) and experience with the analysis of seismological data are required. Some skills in machine learning and in python are also highly desired. A driver's license is recommended. The candidate will be invited to participate in the fieldwork at Piton de la Fournaise volcano. He/she will also be invited to participate to the routine set up at the observatory for the monitoring of Piton de la Fournaise and Mayotte.

The postdoctoral research will be conducted at the Piton de la Fournaise Volcano Observatory (OVPF) located on La Réunion Island. The observatory is in charge of monitoring the Piton de la Fournaise volcano since 1979. Since 2020, the OVPF is also in charge of monitoring the seismo-volcanic activity of Mayotte. The successful candidate will be integrated within a small but multidisciplinary active team of researchers working on one of the most active volcanoes on the planet (with more than 2 eruptions / year since 2014). The Observatory is located on La Réunion island, a hotspot of cultural diversity with nearly 1 million people.

Application documents: The application must be made via the CNRS job portal (https://t.co/VclQhlK7pQ). Please attach a cover letter, a CV and the names of two references who may be contacted for letters of recommendation. Please contact Zacharie Duputel (duputel@ipgp.fr), Lise Retailleau (retailleau@ipgp.fr) and Valérie Ferrazzini (ferraz@ipgp.fr) for more information.

The USGS Mendenhall program has a post-doctoral opportunity (#21-36) for recent graduates, entitled: “Improving ground-motion characterization for the USGS earthquake hazard products: Nonergodic, simulation, machine learning, and intensity-based methods.” 

 

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) produces several public-facing products meant to quantify and communicate earthquake hazard, mitigate earthquake risk, and improve post-event situational awareness. These include the National Seismic Hazard Model (NSHM), the ShakeAlert earthquake early warning (EEW) system, and ShakeMap. These products all rely on forecasts from ground-motion models (GMMs), and some rely on ground-motion-to-intensity-conversion equations (GMICEs) to convert peak ground shaking into Modified Mercalli Intensity (MMI) for communicating shaking levels to the public. These products could be improved through innovations in the ground-motion modeling components.  

 

We seek Mendenhall Postdoctoral Scholars to investigate and develop models for ground motion with the goal of improving shaking forecasts in USGS hazard products, including the National Seismic Hazard Model, the ShakeAlert EEW system, and ShakeMap. We seek candidates with interest in one or more of four possible topic areas (1) modeling intensity-based ground motions; (2) the use of 3D simulations to improve ground-motion estimates or PSHA; (3) nonergodic approaches to ground-motion modeling; and (4) the use of machine learning in ground-motion modeling. Example research directions that may be addressed by the Fellow are provided for each topic area at: 

https://www.usgs.gov/centers/mendenhall-research-fellowship-program/21-36-improving-ground-motion-characterization-usgs

Dear all, 

In the framework of the ABYSS ERC project, we are looking for an enthusiastic PhD student with background in geophysics to work on high resolution imaging of crustal structure along the Chilean margin using Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS) data. These images will provide unprecedented details on the margin and allow better observation of the structural heterogeneities that drive differences in the subduction behavior. This will improve our understanding of fault segmentation and the seismic cycle. In addition, the resulting images will provide better crustal velocity models which will increase the accuracy of the seismic event locations that will be recorded during the project.

The successful candidate will join a dynamic group of scientists working on DAS, who are experts in the use of DAS data for multiple applications, in particular for seismology of the ocean floor. In addition, the ABYSS project will provide very rich interactions with a group of nine people on a wide range of seismological applications of DAS data. The candidate will work with myself and in collaboration with Pr Jean-Paul Ampuero (advisory board).

The closing date for applications is June 24 2022. To view further details of this position and application please follow this link:

We have a postdoc position on offer for 3.5 years in Beth Mortimer's lab in the Zoology (soon merged into Biology) Dept at Oxford, UK, in close collaboration with Tarje Nissen-Meyer (Earth Sciences), Andrew Markham (Computer Sciences), and charity Save the Elephants (Kenya). The nature of this position is of course truly multidisciplinary, but a seismological background is particularly interesting, especially with fieldwork, data-processing and machine-learning experience.

Deadline: June 13, start date from Sept 2022

Candidates need to apply through the university system under this link (containing more details on the position): https://tinyurl.com/5xucd5fe

For any inquiries, contact Beth Mortimer ( beth.mortimer@zoo.ox.ac.uk ) and/or Tarje Nissen-Meyer ( tarje.nissen-meyer@earth.ox.ac.uk ).

=======================

A 3.5 year postdoctoral research assistant post is available to join the friendly and expanding Animal Vibration Lab, based in Department of Zoology, University of Oxford. The project aims to understand why elephants use seismic communication, and we look for an enthusiastic researcher to join the multidisciplinary team. Through the project, you will undertake several months of fieldwork in Kenya and collaborate with leading research groups: Prof. Tarje Nissen-Meyer (Seismology, Earth Sciences, University of Oxford), Prof. Andrew Markham (Machine learning & sensor hardware, Computer Science, University of Oxford), and Prof. Fritz Vollrath/Mr Frank Pope (Save the Elephants, Kenya).

An ideal research assistant will have experience working in one or more of biological and/or physical sciences fields, with an interest in working at the life and physical sciences interface, and a willingness to gain knowledge from other disciplines. You should hold a PhD/DPhil in a relevant topic and have experience in time series data collection and the development of time series data analysis pipelines. You should be able to demonstrate how they can integrate outputs from these models with other forms of data to test scientific hypotheses. Training will be given in interdisciplinary aspects of the work, as required, including the opportunity to apply machine learning approaches to the data. You will benefit from a vibrant and inclusive research community in the Lab Group and Department, with career development support. Those wishing to apply for opportunities to fund their own research as an early career principal investigator are particularly encouraged to apply and will be supported in these applications.


We are seeking a highly motivated PhD candidate for a 3-year research project in assessing hydrothermal alteration using geophysical methods. The PhD opportunity is funded through the ?°Beneath the Waves: Preparedness and resilience to New Zealand??s nearshore volcano hazards?? (MBIE Endeavour Research Programme led by GNS Science). 

 

Volcanic islands represent multiple hazards including geophysical mass flows, ashfall, tsunamis, capable of causing massive destruction even at tens of kilometres far from its source. Both mass flows and associated tsunamis can be triggered by volcanic landslides which is increasingly common on volcanoes with hydrothermal alteration. Hydrothermal alteration can also compromise the mechanical properties of the volcanic edifice, via dissolution and precipitation of new secondary minerals. Mapping hydrothermal alteration and mineralogy is a key information to assess volcanic hazards and formulate mitigation strategies. 

 

This project utilizes lab-based and airborne hyperspectral remote sensing to characterise surface alteration on Whaakari/White Island and Tuhua/Mayor Islands, offshore from New Zealand. The remote sensing data will be complemented with Digital Terrain Analysis using photogrammetry- and LiDAR-derived DTMs and microanalytical techniques, such as SEM and XRD, to fingerprint alteration mineralogy, as well as other geophysical methods (e.g. gravity and magnetic data). 

 

The candidate is expected to hold an MSc or BSc (Honours) degree or equivalent in Geophysics/Remote Sensing/Earth Science/ or any related fields. English language requirements are: Academic IELTS score of 6.5 with no band less than 6.0, or a minimum TOEFL iBT of 90 overall (minimum of 20 in writing). More information can be found at this page:https://www.massey.ac.nz/massey/research/higher-research-degrees/how-to-apply-for-the-phd/how-to-apply-for-the-phd.cfm 

 

The scholarship includes a 30,000 NZD stipend (tax-free) and covers tuition fees, insurance, and a conference/research allowance. The successful candidate will join the Volcanic Risk Solutions group within the School of Agriculture and Environment, Massey University. The start date is negotiable. 

 

Candidates are encouraged to get in touch with Dr Gabor Kereszturi (G.Kereszturi@massey.ac.nz). The position does not have a closing date; applications will be reviewed until the position is filled.
