Research aims

Over the next five years, COMET is aiming to answer the following questions:

What is the distribution of tectonic strain and seismic hazard across the continents?

Read more

How does seismic hazard vary in space and time following major earthquakes?

Read more

What is the structure of the continental lithosphere?

Read more

What are the patterns of volcanic deformation and degassing on global and regional scales, and how do these relate to the distribution of global volcanic hazard?

Read more

How does hazard vary in space and time during periods of volcanic activity?

Read more

How do we model subsurface processes to better understand variations in volcanic behaviour?
