Research Keywords active fault / Geomorphology / Geographical Information System / Digital elevation model / Median Tectonic Line
Comments I mainly study tectonic geomorphology to examine crustal movements related to the displacements of active faults. Research methods adopt fieldwork and remote sensing analysis, including interpreting stereo images using aerial photographs and digital elevation models (DEM) and fieldwork. I am studying the topographical development of active faults along the coastal area covering onshore and seafloor topography. I also consider geographic issues related to topography, such as natural disasters and regional development, using the Geographic Information System (GIS).
