Description of the thesis topic

The proposed 3-year PhD position is aimed at using different statistical and signal analysis methods for a comparative study between seismological observations in different tectonic and volcanic regions and the data of acoustic emission during the rock physics experiments with different types of forcing: by mechanical stresses and by pore pressure.

Work Context

ISTerre (Insitut des Sciences de la Terre/Institute of Earth Sciences) is a joint research unit comprised of 300 people. It operates under the supervision of the CNRS, (University Grenoble Alps, University Savoie Mont Blanc, French National Research Institute for Development / French institute of science and technology for transport, development and networks), and is subsidiary of Observatory of Earth Sciences and Astronomy of Grenoble and of PAGE, a research center of Grenoble-Alpes University.

Organized in 10 research teams, the primary goal of our research unit is the physical and chemical study of the planet Earth through a combination of observations of natural objects, experimentation, and the modeling of complex processes.

The selected candidate will be part of the Ondes team including 65 researchers, post-docs and PhD students, including the other members of the SEISMAZE project.

SEISMAZE is aimed at studies of slow transient deformation processes in geological systems based on seismological observations. One of its important goals is the understanding of source mechanisms of the low-frequency seismicity and its relationship to slow processes occurring in the seismogenic fault zones and volcanic systems.
