The SSA 2015 meeting will take place in Pasadena, CA, from 21-23 April. As always, there will be plenty of interesting things for paleoseismologists. Scott Bennett asked me to advertise the following session that deals with a topic most of us will find highly important:
How Reliable Are Reconstructions and Models of Surface-Rupturing Earthquakes?
Abstract deadline is 9 January, 2015. Continue reading “Session at SSA meeting in Pasadena: How reliable are reconstructions and models of surface-rupturing earthquakes?”
Never, never, never ever, for no reason it is justifiable to damage a cultural heritage site. Not in Peru, not anywhere else in the world. Never. It should be always one of our primary objectives to sustain cultural and natural heritage sites. No discussion.
What happened in our world of geosciences last week? What news did you miss? What paper to read on the weekend? Here’s a roundup of last week. Today is Friday and here are your links!
“Blown in the wind” Bob Dylan would have said or, at least, by. An international team (Università dell’Insubria, Università degli Studi di Milano – ITALY, Universität Innsbruck – AUSTRIA) found evidence of surface secondary faulting by blind thrust thanks to a promising setting characterized by syn-growth aeolian sedimentation, at the northern fringe of the Po Plain (N Italy). Results were published this year, in the Journal of Geophysical Research.
Quite a lot happened this week. We have news on the world’s most abundant mineral, Nature going open access, a new blog on geomorphology, and more! So, Welcome back! Today is Friday and here are your links!
The gathering of the South American Neotectonic Group took place at the Universidad Católica de Chile in Santiago as a departure point of the scheduled activities of the “Inventory of Hazardous Structures of South America” project, a topic layer of the South America Risk Assessment (SARA) effort (see previous post at here). This convocation also hosted a meeting of the INQUA SAm-GeoQuat IFG and the 1311 Project.
