Three Postdoctoral positions in paleoseismology and seismology @ ICTP Trieste, Italy

The following very interesting mail reached us by Abdelkrim Aoudia from the ICTP in Trieste (Italy):

Three Postdoctoral positions in paleoseismology and seismology

are available at the Earth System Physics (ESP) section of the International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP).  The two first positions (A and B) are funded by the GENERALI Group– a major player in the global insurance industry, in the framework of a research project integrating earthquake fault studies and simulations of the ground-motion.

The third position (C) is funded in the framework of an international collaborative effort following the recent Nepal Gorkha 2015 earthquake. The research topic involves a study of the structure, dynamics and seismicity of Nepal Himalaya.

14th International Conference of the Geological Society of Greece – deadline 30 Sept.

Greece is a Disneyland for neotectonics and active faulting research. Some of the most important findings in earthquake science have been achieved in Greece, its historical catalogue is one of the longest on Earth, and paleoseismology, archaeoseismology & tsunami studies are abundant. These are many good reasons to consider registration for the 14th Int’l Conference of the Geological Society of Greece (Thessaloniki, May 25-27, 2016), especially since the programme is full of earthquake science stuff. The deadline for submitting papers is September 30.

Latest papers on Paleoseismology, Active Tectonics, and Tsunamis

Summer time is publishing time! Lots of new papers are out, today we have

  • archaeoseismology & rotated objects;
  • paleoseismology in Korea, China, & Portugal;
  • trench photomosaicking and PBRs;
  • lots of tectonic geomorphology (i.e., Ximena’s paper on the Carboneras fault where I did my diploma thesis in 2004…);
  • news from the Balochistan earthquake; and
  • tsunamis.

Enjoy reading and tell us if something is missing!
