[2] The final presentation of master theses of 2008-09 Course was held

The final presentation of master theses of 2008-09 Course was held on
24th and 25th August in IISEE. This year, 22 papers were presented in two
days. A variety of different and new themes were introduced such as
"Studying Crustal Structure Using Receiver Function Technique", "Seismic
Performance of Reinforced Concrete Walls with Electro-Welded Mesh", "W
Phase Analysis for Tsunami Warning", etc. Since many sharp questions
followed after presentations, the auditorium was filled with tension from
beginning to the end. We look forward to their further activities after
going back to their own countries. Concernig details of their theses, please
refer their Synopses that will be posted on IISEE Synopses page soon.
