It seems like everyone is at the AGU currently, and even the German media is full of geoscience news. The first really interesting thing that I came across was that hurricanes might trigger strong earthquakes. If Shimon Wdowinski from University of Miami is right, this would be a huge step forward for our earthquake understanding. If he should be right.
we are pleased to invite you to submit your abstract to the Earthquake Geology session at the upcoming EGU meeting (22-27 April, Vienna). Deadline for submissions is January 17.

A new job announcement was posted some couple of days ago: the University of Lisbon offers two post-doctoral research positions for up to 5 years. Application submission opens this Wednesday, 7 December and closes on 13 January 2012.
Earthquake prediction is possible! At least for toads (well, for bufo bufo only). And at least in Italy. And at least in 2009. Do you remember that story of toads having left their home (lake) before the L’Aquila earthuake and returning after the aftershock sequence? A new paper on this was published in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health: Grant et al., 2011: Ground Water Chemistry Changes before Major Earthquakes and Possible Effects on Animals. Int. J. Environ. Res. Public Health, 8, 1936-1956; doi:10.3390/ijerph8061936.
