Activity: Other activity types › - Research and Teaching at External Organisation
A major merit of the proposed activities is multidiciplinary training of PG students through active collaboration and interaction between Bristol and Kyoto. This will make a long-term impact. The innovative scentific method, which was used/validated for Tohoku (e.g. CRUST), will be applied to two seismic regions, Nankai-Tonankai and Sumatra, where occurrence of major subduction earthquakes is anticipated in near future. The proposed research projects promote proctive eartquake-related disaster research. The research activities will eventually make an important academic impact in the fields of earthquake and tsunami disaster risk mitigation.
