I am a DPhil student working on deep moonquakes under the supervision of Jessica Hawthorne.
Deep moonquakes have a range of enigmatic behaviours; they occur at depths between 700 – 1200 km in discrete source regions called nests, and have strong periodicity linked to the solid Moon tides. However, the source mechanisms of deep moonquakes are not fully understood. Using a range of methods to estimate the focal mechanisms and other source properties of deep moonquakes I aim to gain insight into the rupture processes occurring in the lunar interior.
