2015 GSA Session “Estimating the Timing and Characteristics of Continental Earthquakes from Geologic Data”

The 2015 GSA Annual Meeting will be held in early November in Baltimore and since the deadline is approaching (11 August) it is time to check paleoseismology sessions. One of the many interesting sessions will be chaired by our colleagues Mark Quigley and Tim Stahl: “T186 – Estimating the Timing and Characteristics of Continental Earthquakes from Geologic Data”. Tim told me that there will be “some great invited speakers lined up speaking on paleoliquefaction, lake varve deposits and San Andreas fault paleoseismology“.

Session details:

T186 – Estimating the Timing and Characteristics of Continental Earthquakes from Geologic Data

Mark Quigley, Timothy Stahl
GSA Quaternary Geology and Geomorphology Division

We seek contributions focused on determining the timing, source locations, magnitudes, and shaking characteristics of paleoearthquakes through careful study of landslides, rockfall deposits, liquefaction features, sedimentary deposits, and/or other geologic, geomorphic, and biologic phenomena.

Quaternary Geology | Tectonics/Tectonophysics | Geomorphology

Deadline for abstracts: 11 August.

Have a look at the session list, there are many interesting things to come!
