Multiple scattering theory for polycrystalline materials with strong grain anisotropy: theoretical fundamentals and applications

multiple scattering theory for polycrystalline materials with strong grain anisotropy

This work is a natural extension of the author’s previous work: “Multiple scattering theory for heterogeneous elastic continua with strong property fluctuation: theoretical fundamentals and applications” (arXiv:1706.09137 ), which established the foundation for developing multiple scattering model for heterogeneous elastic continua with either weak or strong fluctuations in mass density and elastic stiffness. 437 more words

Seismometer scouting in Sabah

In August I headed to Sabah again for a few weeks to help with scouting for sites to put seismometers across north Borneo. These instruments will be deployed as part of a project to image the structure of the crust and mantle beneath Sabah, hopefully leading to better understanding of the tectonic processes that have shaped this part of the world. 1,296 more words
