A special session on Tectonic Geomorphology will be held at the 8th International Symposium of Eastern Mediterranean Geology from 13-17 October, 2014, in Muğla, Turkey. The session “Tectonic geomorphology: coupling between crustal deformation and landscape evolution in the Eastern Mediterranean” will be chaired by Sarah Boulton, Mustapha Meghraoui, and M. Cihat Alçiçek. Abstract submission is possible until 15 May.

If you are looking for a last minute Christmas present, these shoes might not be the right choice. Also, I am not exactly sure if it’s too nerdy, but the idea is great and the shoes are beautiful. Think about customized shoes with the geological map of your home area… Continue reading “Geology of Shoes – Shoes of Geology”
just before everybody is leaving for the AGU to San Francisco, we want to draw your attention to our session at the EGU 2014 (27 April – 02 May) in Vienna about:
Active Tectonics and the Earthquake Cycle (TS5.1/NH4.10/SM2.7) co-sponsored by GSA-SGT
Active Tectonics studies may shed light onto the understanding of the long-term and short-term deformation patterns in intraplate domains and along plate boundaries. A wide range of approaches such as paleoseismology, paleogeodesy, paleotsunami investigations, tectonic geomorphology and high-resolution datation methods bring unprecedented constraints on the identification of active structures, the distribution of associated deformation and the size and timing of past earthquakes. This, in turn, may be used to better understand i) the earthquake cycle through the characterization of its inter-seismic, co-seismic and post-seismic periods and ii) related hazard (including earthquake, tsunami and triggered mass movements) through the characterization of recurrence patterns.
This session seeks contributions on the study of earthquake-prone areas in interplate and intraplate regions that combine approaches such as earthquake geology and geomorphology, seismotectonics, geophysical imaging (including GPR and seismics) and remote sensing (including InSAR and LiDAR surveys). We also encourage contributions that incorporate such observations into seismic hazard assessment.
Deadlines are November, 29 for Support Applications and January, 19 for Abstract Submission.
Looking forward to an interesting session and see you in Vienna,

Dear friends and colleagues,
the registration for the PATA-Days is now online at pata-days.org. We used the acronym now to avoid the long title (4th International INQUA Meeting on Paleoseismology, Active Tectonics and Archeoseismology, 9-15 October, Aachen, Germany) and to do a favour to our Spanish friends…
The deadline for registration and abstract submission is 15 July.
Callan Bentley from Mountain Beltway had the idea to list the 101 American Geo-Sites mentioned in Albert B. Dickas’ book and to mark those he has already visited. The whole thing became kind of popular in the geoblogosphere, and this KMZ by one of Callan’s readers allows to explore the 101 outcrops one definitely has to visit in the US. So now here’s my list, in bold the places I’ve visited (as you will see, there are far much still to be seen than I’ve already visited!):
- Wetumpka Crater, Alabama
- Exit Glacier, Alaska
- Antelope Canyon, Arizona
- Meteor Crater, Arizona
- Monument Valley, Arizona
- Prairie Creek Pipe, Arkansas
- Wallace Creek, California
- Racetrack Playa, California
- Devils Postpile, California
- Rancho La Brea, California Continue reading “Geo-sites meme: 101 American Geo-Sites You’ve Gotta See”
