The second circular for the Summer School on Active tetonics in Prague, 24-27 September, 2019, is out now. Download here. We are sorry that the summer school is already fully booked. See you in Prague in September!
This is a pretty cool job opportunity in one of the world’s most interesting places. Topics include: (1) developing techniques for processing historical aerial photographs into digital elevation data; (2) analysis of pre- and post-earthquake data for the purpose of assessing fault geometries, connectivity and kinematics; (3) modelling multi-fault ruptures using geologic and remotely sensed validation datasets, and exploring the implications of this research for seismic hazard analysis.
It’s getting hot in Germany, more than 30°C are forecast for the next days. Time to read some tectonics news hot off the press – these are the latest papers on paleoseismology, earthquakes, and active tectonics. Enjoy reading!
New month, new papers! This time we have a lot of studies on tectonic geomorphology and landscape evolution, and new insights from Italy and New Zealand, among others. These are the latest papers, enjoy reading!
The INQUA Focus Group on Earthquake Geology and Seismic Hazards (EGSHaz) will run the International Summer School on Active Tectonics and Tectonic Geomorphology in Prague from 24-27 September, 2019. This event replaces the PATA Days this year and aims mainly at MSc./PhD students and Early Career Researchers. Please note that this is not a classical PATA Days event where new science will be shown and discussed. The summer school is organized by the Institute of Rock Structure and Mechanics, Czech Academy of Sciences and the Charles University in Prague, Faculty of Science. Please find a pdf of the first circular here.
The deadline for the submission of abstracts to the 34th IAS Congress of Rome 2019 is approaching (30 March 2019). The 34th IAS meeting will be held in Rome from 10-13th September 2019 (http://iasroma2019.org/).
There will be lots of interesting sessions, of special interest for the earthquake geology community will be session 7.11 The Sedimentary Record of Earthquakes, Tsunamis and other Extreme/Catastrophic Events.

Paleoseismicity.org is a page dedicated to scientists and everyone else interested in paleoseismology, archeoseismology, neotectonics, earthquake archeology, earthquake engineering and related topics. Different authors irregularly write about recent papers, field work, problems, conferences or just interesting things that they come across. We intend to provide a platform for discussion and scientific exchange. Interested in joining as an author? Please contact us!
