I'm a statistical seismologist in 🇪🇺 at #UniNa (#Naples, #Italy).

I analyze #earthquake #data with #statistics, #brain, and #colleagues in #international projects—to advance #earthquake #forecast-ing.

About me:
◦ PhD in #seismic #hazard/#risk & #induced #seismicity.
◦ Curious about all things related to #science/#research (from the human genome to climate change to distant neutron stars)
◦ Proponent of #OpenScience and #CitizenScience
◦ Contributing to various #BOINC projects

Hi and welcome.
Would you be Interested in contributing wacky ideas about exoplanets seismology to FreeOrion ?

@lienrag Sure. What kind of wacky aspects do you have in mind? That an exoquake may split the planet in half?
Recalling analyses of #moonquakes:
and #marsquakes:
they are exceptional by 1) typically shaking longer (more scattering) and 2) more often being meteoroid impacts (thinner atmosphere).

You may get more inspiration here:
Quite impressive: a #sunquake can reach magnitudes >11—impossible on earth.



Actually we need good "fluff" (see freeorion.org/forum/viewtopic. and freeorion.org/forum/viewtopic. ) for new mechanisms in-game.
First thing I can think of concerning quakes is what the game calls "Planet specials" (freeorion.org/forum/viewtopic. ), so if you have ideas there don't hesitate !

There may be things here freeorion.org/forum/viewtopic. or here freeorion.org/forum/viewtopic. (like buildings that can harness quake energy) also ?


Hi again.
To be more practical, what whacky Planet Specials could I create from Exoplanet tectonics ideas ?
I mean, things that would help life on it¹, or hinder it, or allow to harness energy, or help/hinder space travel from it, or have some Research value ?

¹ Note that we have Lithic metabolism species in FreeOrion.


Also, what wacky effect on evolution could some patterns of exotectonic have, that would explain the particular evolution of some specific alien species ?
