This year 2022 is looking like the beginning of return to normalcy with regards to travel for conferences as Professor Nweke attends the 12th National Earthquake Engineering Conference (12NCEE) which was held in Downtown Salt Lake City, UT. At the conference, Prof. Nweke presented on his work investigating site response variations in different sedimentary basin … Read More
Prof. Nweke and his Ph.D. student Piyush Vyas joined a team that was tasked with deploying 250 temporary seismic instruments to record earthquakes in the Los Angeles Basin (All the red dots in the Feature Image and points in the google earth photo below). The effort will temporarily increase the number of seismometers in the … Read More
This is a flagship paper that presents our work investigating updates to the way we characterize seismic site response in sedimentary basins of varying size, as well as non-basin areas. The paper details our efforts which resulted in changes to the mean estimates and associated variability as it relates to ground motion hazards, going beyond … Read More
Prof. Nweke was invited to present his research on “Seismic Site Response in Sedimentary Basins” to the Structural Engineering Department at UCSD.
