Research interests and current projects

Ka Lok is interested in different aspects of solid earth geophysics, including earthquakes, volcanic processes, seismic imaging techniques and earth structure. Some of his current projects include:

  • Development of new methods for tremor location
  • Understanding volcanic tremor and making use of it as a real-time unrest indicator
  • Development of new methods for earthquake relocation
  • Numerical simulation of seismic wave propagation in a scattering environment
  • Development of structural imaging techniques using scattered seismic waves
  • Improving seismic source imaging techniques
