The 2008 Young Scientist Outstanding Poster Paper (YSOPP) Award is awarded to Fabrizio Romano for the poster/PICO entitled:
Rupture process of the 25 September 2003 Tokachi-Oki (Hokkaido, Japan) Mw 8.3 earthquake from joint inversion of tsunami waveform and GPS data (Romano, F.; Lorito, S.; Piatanesi, A.; Antonioli, A.; Hirata, K.)

Fabrizio Romano is currently a PhD student at the University of Bologna, Italy and carries out his research activity at the Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia, Rome, Italy. The aim of his research, supervised by Dr. A. Piatanesi, is to study the mechanics of several great tsunamigenic earthquakes using inversion methods and different datasets. Particularly, the studypresented at the EGU 2008 points out the limits of GPS data to resolve completely the slip distribution on the fault and shows that, instead, a joint inversion of tsunami waveform and geodetic data constrains the solution in a much better way.
