2015 - Fellow of American Geophysical Union (AGU)

Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Seismology
  • Plate tectonics
  • Optics

His scientific interests lie mostly in Seismology, Geodesy, Seismic moment, Seismic wave and Receiver function. His work in the fields of Aftershock and Plate tectonics overlaps with other areas such as Trench and Far East. His Geodesy research incorporates themes from Hypocenter, Inversion, Group velocity, Phase velocity and Rayleigh wave.

His work focuses on many connections between Seismic moment and other disciplines, such as Submarine pipeline, that overlap with his field of interest in Trough. Charles J. Ammon interconnects Interplate earthquake, Episodic tremor and slip and Lithosphere in the investigation of issues within Seismic wave. The Receiver function study combines topics in areas such as Acoustics, Blind deconvolution and Flood basalt.

His most cited work include:

  • The great Sumatra-Andaman earthquake of 26 December 2004 (830 citations)
  • Iterative deconvolution and receiver-function estimation (781 citations)
  • The isolation of receiver effects from teleseismic P waveforms (588 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

Seismology, Surface wave, Geodesy, Aftershock and Seismic wave are his primary areas of study. Seismology and Rayleigh wave are commonly linked in his work. His Rayleigh wave research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Tsunami earthquake, Hypocenter and Group velocity.

In Surface wave, Charles J. Ammon works on issues like Inversion, which are connected to Receiver function. Charles J. Ammon works mostly in the field of Aftershock, limiting it down to concerns involving Intraplate earthquake and, occasionally, Seismic hazard. Charles J. Ammon interconnects Magnitude, Plate tectonics and Focal mechanism in the investigation of issues within Seismogram.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Seismology (75.52%)
  • Surface wave (24.48%)
  • Geodesy (14.69%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2013-2021)?

  • Seismology (75.52%)
  • Surface wave (24.48%)
  • Geophysics (9.09%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

His main research concerns Seismology, Surface wave, Geophysics, Fault and Tectonophysics. Charles J. Ammon carries out multidisciplinary research, doing studies in Seismology and Relocation. His studies deal with areas such as Tomography, Lithosphere and Geodesy as well as Surface wave.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Gravity, Dispersion and Receiver function. His research investigates the connection between Fault and topics such as Tectonics that intersect with problems in Magma chamber, Magma, Lava, Volcano and Seismometer. The various areas that he examines in his Aftershock study include Intraplate earthquake and Sequence.

Between 2013 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Multiple plates subducting beneath Colombia, as illuminated by seismicity and velocity from the joint inversion of seismic and gravity data (50 citations)
  • Inverting interpolated receiver functions with surface wave dispersion and gravity: Application to the western U.S. and adjacent Canada and Mexico (24 citations)
  • The 2 March 2016 Wharton Basin Mw 7.8 earthquake: High stress drop north-south strike-slip rupture in the diffuse oceanic deformation zone between the Indian and Australian Plates (16 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Seismology
  • Plate tectonics
  • Optics

Charles J. Ammon focuses on Seismology, Aftershock, Fault, Geodesy and Rayleigh wave. His work in Seismology addresses subjects such as Slab, which are connected to disciplines such as Plate tectonics. His Aftershock research incorporates elements of Intraplate earthquake and Sequence.

He studied Fault and Tectonics that intersect with Fracture and Earthquake location. His study in Geodesy is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Group velocity, Fracture zone and Centroid. His Rayleigh wave research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Multivariate interpolation, Transform fault, Azimuth and Geophysics.
