JST Sakura Science Program2017 at ERI

Report from Tokyo University

In 2017, we invited 12 Asian students for short summer internship program at Earthquake Research Institute (ERI), the University of Tokyo, with support of SAKURA Exchange Program in Science of Japan Science Technology Agency (JST).

12 fresh students came from China, Indonesia, India, Malaysia, South Korea, and Taiwan, arriving on July 2 and leaving on July 22.

During their visit, they mostly dedicated their time on their own researches with their host research staff at ERI. Research topics include rupture process of 1999 Chi-Chi earthquake, seismic slip budget evaluation in Northeast Japan, attenuation in the inner core, subseafloor hydrothermal circulation, tsunami modeling, structure of subducted seamounts, strong motion simulation, seismic potential in southern Java, earthquake mechanism off Hyuga-nada, seismic noise analysis, interferometry SAR analysis, and lithospheric structure of western Sunda arc.
