      Løvholt, Finn; Glimsdal, Sylfest; Harbitz, Carl Bonnevie (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Landslides are the second most frequent tsunami source worldwide. However, their complex and diverse nature of origin combined with their infrequent event records make prognostic modelling challenging. In this paper, we ...
    • Throw variations and strain partitioning associated with fault-bend folding along normal faults 

      Delogkos, Efstratios; Saqab, Muhammad Mudasar; Walsh, John J.; Roche, Vincent; Childs, Conrad (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Normal faults have irregular geometries on a range of scales arising from different processes including refraction and segmentation. A fault with constant dip and displacement on a large-scale will have irregular geometries ...
    • Validation of a ground-based telescope-assisted hyperspectral remote sensor for soil measurements 

      Salazar, Sean; Coffman, Richard A. (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
