From the Seafloor to the Seismogenic Zone: Fluid Flow in Earthquakes

Dr. Screaton’s presentation will focus on the initial results from NanTroSEIZE, a multi-year program to drill, sample, and monitor a major seismogenic zone off the coast of Japan. Dr. Screaton specializes in hydrogeology, with particular focus on the interrelationship of fluid flow and deformation in subduction zones.

She has spent about 11 months of her life on the JOIDES Resolution and the Chikyu, having sailed on Ocean Drilling Program Legs 146, 171A, 180, 190, and 205.

Most recently, Dr. Screaton served as a co-chief on IODP Expedition 316, part of the first stage of NanTroSEIZE.
