International Seminar of the Integrated Arts and Sciences for Disaster Reduction Research Group will be held as shown below. You are cordially invited to the lecture, especially students working on the related subjects.
(１) Lecturer No.1 Title：Fundamentals of Elastic Wave Propagation and Diffuse Fields Brief content：Prof. Francisco Sanchez-Sesma of UNAM, Mexico, will provide a lecture on the fundamentals of wave propagation and the Green's function. With very intuitive arguments he will convey the idea of diffuse fields and its implications for site effect investigation. (２) Lecturer No.2 Title：Fundamentals of Strong Motion Prediction, with Special Reference to Source Characteristics in the Extension Regime Brief content：Prof. John G. Anderson of UNR, USA, will provide a lecture on the recent progress of seismic observation and subsequent development of ground motion prediction equations and its variabilities, with special reference to the source terms of earthquakes occurring in the extension regime.
