Research Topics

The Helmholtz Young Investigators Group SAIDAN has the following research topics:

(1) Generating a thorough, quantitative understanding on deformation processes ranging from aseismic slip to brittle failure in earthquakes.

(2) Characterizing precursory processes preceding the occurrence of large earthquakes in relation to both plate-bounding transform faults and reservoir engineering activities.

These topics are being investigated within two very different environments :
