Session on sedimentary records in coastal environments for Nat Haz Assessment at the Sedimentology Meeting in Krakow

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.

Guest blog by Elisa Kagan: New book on the Dead Sea Transform

A new book on the Dead Sea Transform has been published by Springer:

DEAD SEA TRANSFORM FAULT SYSTEM: REVIEWS

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).

Here is a link to the book on the Springer site: http://link.springer.com/book/10.1007%2F978-94-017-8872-4
