Today is Friday! We have an earthquake in Spain, stunning photographs, LEGO, and a guide on how to avoid being misquoted. Here are your links!
And again it’s almost the start of a weekend! I collected some nice links for you, I hope you like them. Today is Friday and here are your links!
The 31st International Association of Sedimentologists Meeting of Sedimentology will be held in Krakow, Poland from 22 – 25 June, 2015.
The session “Application of sedimentary records in coastal environments for natural hazard assessment” aims on gathering contributions that document the application of sedimentary records of coastal changes (sea level changes) and disasters (storms, tsunamis) into coastal hazard assessment, as well as to present studies focusing on reconstructions of extreme coastal events in the past.
The Deform 2015 school is over, long live the Deform Community! Read what some of the digital geoscientists have been tweeting during the past week. They have take away messages for you even if you couldn’t make it!
UPDATE: Now another link inside! What have you done this week? Been busy all the time? Did you manage to finish everything that you’ve planned? I hope you did. Today is Friday and here are your links!

A new book on the Dead Sea Transform has been published by Springer:
Together with Prof. Zvi Garfunkel and Prof. Zvi Ben-Avraham, I am a co-editor of this book. The book focuses on various aspects of the fault system, from geophysics, to tectonics, paleolimnology, hydrology, seismicity, and PALEOSEISMICITY. Most relevant to this blog are the papers by Agnon and by Marco & Klinger.
- Shmulik Marco and Yann Klinger review in a new light the on-fault paleoseismic studies carried out along the DST.
- Amotz Agnon delves into the off-fault seismite archives (lake, cave).
