The INQUA Summer School on Active Tectonics and Tectonic Geomorphology was held in Prague from 24-27 September, 2019. This summer school was run by INQUA‘s IFG EGSHaz as part of the TERPRO commission. The event was hosted by the Institute of Rock Structure and Mechanics, Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic, Dpt. Neotectonics and Thermochronology. Main organizer was IFG co-leader Petra Štěpančíková. We would also like to thank MSc. Jakub Stemberk, Monika Hladká, Jana Šreinová, the deputy director Dr. Filip Hartvich, and all the staff involved for their professionalism and warm hospitality. Overall, 50 participants and 14 lecturers from 25 countries participated in the summer school.more

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!
The event organised by the Institute of Rock Structure and Mechanics (Czech Academy of Sciences), Charles University in Prague (Faculty of Science), Masaryk University in Brno, and INQUA’s IFG EGSHaz. We are supported by, and work in the framework of, INQUA – the International Union for Quaternary Research, and the Czech Association of Geomorphologists (CAG) as a contributor and member of IAG.

Still looking for a cool conference to attend this summer? Why not travel to Kyrgyzstan for the 17th International Symposium on Geo-disaster Reduction from 19-23 August 2019, organized by our friend Hans-Balder Havenith with Liège University, the Kyrgyz Institute of Seismology and Institute of Geomechanics and Mining, and the International Consortium on Geo-disaster Reduction (ICGdR)? more
Challenges & Conclusions from the 6th Int’l Colloquium on Historical earthquakes & Paleoseismology studies, Han-sur-Lesse, Belgium
The 6th Int’l Colloquium on Historical earthquakes & Paleoseismology studies took place in October 2018 in Han-sur-Lesse, Belgium. Our colleagues Koen Van Noten, Thierry Camelbeeck, and Thomas Lecocq have put together a nice summary of this event, pointing out future challenges in the field:
From 24 to 26 October 2018 55 scientists from 14 countries gathered at Han-sur-Lesse in Belgium for the annual gathering of the Colloquium on Historical earthquakes and Seismology. During this well attended conference, four invited keynote talks, 27 oral and 16 poster contributions were presented. Topics in this multidisciplinary colloquium spanned four themes. The first three themes are recurrent themes in this Colloquium series and focused on (1) Seismology and Historical earthquakes, (2) Paleoseismology and (3) Archaeoseismology. The organisers also specifically wanted to focus on (4) Earthquakes and natural caves; a discipline in which major progress was recently made. This topic was heavily debated during the field trip to the Han-sur-Lesse and Rochefort caves on 25 October 2018. Hereinafter we summarise what was presented (see program) by the attendants and which challenges seismologists – and friends – face these days.
The 8th International Symposium on Andean Geodynamics (ISAG) will be held in Quito, Ecuador on September 24-26th, 2019. In addition to the scientific session, several field trips will be held. The event is organized by the Instituto Geofísico de la Escuela Politécnica Nacional (IG-EPN, Ecuador) and the Institut de Recherche pour le Développement (IRD, France).
- Online registration: January, 2019
- Deadline for abstracts: April 1st, 2019
- Deadline for early bird registration: May 1st, 2019
Please make sure to check the following palaeoseismology-related sessions, abstract deadline is 9 January!
- Earthquake geology and seismic hazards: From earthquake mapping of historical and prehistoric earthquakes to palaeoseismology. (Convenors: Ioannis Papanikolaou, Stéphane Baize, Christoph Grützner)
- Palaeoseismology of plate interiors under Pleistocene climate changes. (Klaus Reicherter, Petra Štěpančíková, Małgorzata Pisarska-Jamroży, Poster only)
- Development of soft-sediment deformation structures (SSDS) and differences between non-seismic and seismic structures. (Małgorzata Pisarska-Jamroży, Tom Van Loon, Barbara Woronko, Andreas Boerner, Poster only)
- Subduction zone palaeoseismology. (Emma Hocking. Ed Garrett, Jasper Moernaut)
Also interesting for the earthquake community:
- Sea-level changes from minutes to millennia. (Simon Engelhart, Fengling Yu, Alar Rosentau, Gösta Hoffmann, Poster only)
- The sedimentary record of tsunamis and storms. (Vanessa Heyvaert, Sue Dawson, Max Engel)
- River terraces as archives of Quateranry landscape development. (Martin Stokes, Pedro Cunha, Poster only)
The 10th PATA Days, which were planned for September 2019 in Israel, have to be cancelled. The next regular PATA meeting will therefore be held in Chile 2020. This is the bad news. The good news is that there will be a student summer school organized by the IFG EGSHaz from 24-27 September, 2019, in Prague (Czech Republic). Petra Štěpančíková and her team are currently working on the schedule. The summer school will mainly address students and PhD students interested in earthquake geology, paleoseismology, and tectonic geomorphology. We will likely have two days of lectures & exercises and two days of field trips. More information will be available soon, so stay tuned.
Please make sure to consider attending the INQUA Congress in Dublin (25-31 July, 2019). There will be three sessions organized by our IFG:
- Earthquake Geology and Seismic Hazards: from earthquake mapping of historical and prehistoric earthquakes to paleoseismology (Ioannis Papanikolaou, Stéphane Baize, Christoph Grützner)
- Paleoseismology of plate interiors under Pleistocene climate changes (Klaus Reicherter, Petra Štěpančíková, Małgorzata Pisarska-Jamroży)
- Development of soft-sediment deformation structures (SSDS) and differences between non-seismic and seismic structures (Małgorzata
(Gosia) Pisarska-Jamroży, A.J. Tom van Loon, Barbara Woronko, Andreas Börner)
Also, this session could be of interest:
- Subduction zone palaeoseismology (Emma Hocking, Ed Garrett, Jasper Moernaut)
See you in Dublin and Prague!
