JT carbon

Organic carbon export to the hadal seafloor triggered by large earthquakes

We have integrated state-of-the-art methods to reveal drastic export of organic carbon to the hadal trench, shedding new light on the impact of large earthquakes on the deep-sea carbon cycle.

Fieldwork in Chile

Larger earthquakes recur more periodically

A team around Jasper Moernaut presents new constraints on the recurrence pattern of Chilean megathrust earthquakes through the investigation of the turbidite records in lakes.

GRL surf remob

Earthquake-triggered surficial remobilization at subduction zone margins

We discovered the first evidence of surficial remobilization on an active margin slope in form of three cm-scale gaps representing the strongest historical earthquakes.
