This week the EGU Blog Team is attending Nethermod, so we will give you daily updates! Nethermod is the XV International Workshop on Numerical Modelling of Mantle and Lithosphere Dynamics. The 2017 workshop is held at a lakeside hotel near Putten, The Netherlands. The meeting is co-sponsored by the Utrecht University, the Oslo University Centre for Earth Evolution and Dynamics (CEED), the European Geological Union (EGU), and the Computational Infrastructure for Geodynamics (CIG).
Iris van Zelst is a PhD student at ETH Zürich in Switzerland. She is working on the modelling of tsunamigenic earthquakes using a range of interdisciplinary modelling approaches, such as geodynamic, dynamic rupture, and tsunami modelling. Current research projects include splay fault propagation in subduction zones and the 2004 Sumatra-Andaman earthquake. Iris is Editor-in-chief of the GD blog team. You can reach Iris via email.
