Bohnhoff et al. develop an entirely new scale-invariant and process-oriented approach to unravel earthquake nucleation and rupture physics. This bears enormous potential for future generations of adaptive seismic hazard assessment at major tectonic plate-boundaries and associated risk at colocated population centers. This will also critically improve mitigation of man-made seismic events, which is important for public acceptance of renewable energy production and storage.

Marco Bohnhoff

Helmholtz Centre Potsdam GFZ German Research Centre for Geosciences

Marco is head of GFZ Potsdam section ‘Geomechanics and Scientific Drilling’ and Professor for Seismology at Free University Berlin. His research addresses deformation processes over a broad range with a focus on tectonic and induced seismicity. After an apprenticeship in Electronics he completed his Diploma and PhD in Geophysics at Hamburg University. He was then appointed as Assistant Professor at Bochum University where he completed his habilitation. He was a Heisenberg fellow at Stanford University and is a certified manager, was head of a Helmholtz YIG and has lead the GFZ think tank.
