[About Me] [Formal CV] [Twitter: @SianiparDimas]

also affiliated with: Program Studi D-IV Geofisika, Sekolah Tinggi Meteorologi Klimatologi dan Geofisika (STMKG) – Agency for Meteorology Climatology and Geophysics of the Republic of Indonesia (BMKG)

My current affiliation (click): [TIGP ESS]  [BMKG]  [STMKG]

Research Interest: Earthquake source physics (seismogenesis) and seismotectonics in the regions of Indonesia; earthquake nucleation and triggering


(1) Waveform seismology: STA/LTA, matched filter (template matching) detection, hypocenter relocation, moment tensor and finite fault inversions, repeating earthquakes (repeaters) identification

(2) Statistical seismology: Gutenberg-Richter b-value, Omori-Utsu p-value, ETAS model, foreshocks-mainshock-aftershocks sequences, tectonic swarm activities

(3) Earthquake triggering: Static and dynamic stress transfer and numerical modeling, triggered tectonic tremor in Indonesia, earthquake-volcano interaction

(4) BMKG earthquake catalog (Indonesia): national and regional catalog, magnitude conversion, magnitude of completeness (Mc), network performance evaluation

(5) Source spectrum: Seismic moment, source dimension, stress drop
