  • New papers on paleoseismology, earthquakes, and active tectonics (Aug 2018)

    This time we have an impressive variety of earthquake study sites: Turkey, China, USA, Tadjik Basin, Italy, Japan, Sumatra, Himalayas, Spain, Mexico, Balkans, Mars, laboratory. Who could possibly ask for more? Plus some interesting work on fault physics. Check out the latest papers on earthquakes, active tectonics, and paleoseismicity:

  • New papers on paleoseismology and active tectonics (July 2018)

    A lot of interesting papers have been published in the past month, including studies on recent moderate to strong earthquakes, geomorphology, fault physics, and some classic paleoseismology. These are the latest articles on paleoseismology and active tectonics – enjoy! more

  • New papers on paleoseismology, tsunami, and active tectonics (June 2018)

    These are the latest papers on active tectonics, paleoseismology, and tsunami. Lots of new studies from New Zealand and Greece this time, plus an intense discussion on tsunami in the Mediterranean. Enjoy! more

  • Characterizing distributed faulting of the October 30th, 2016, Central Italy earthquake

    Surface faulting is commonly observed after moderate to strong (Mw > 6.0) earthquakes. Beside primary faulting along the seismogenic structure, distributed faulting (DF) may occur in the vicinity of the principal faulting (ANSI/ANS-2.30, 2015). DF may impact wide areas and its forecasting is particularly relevant for the design of critical or distributive infrastructures (e.g., nuclear power plants). DF assessment is currently pursued through probabilistic fault displacement hazard assessment (PFDHA): in this approach, the conditional probability of DF occurrence is computed as a function of magnitude and distance from the primary fault. Empirical regressions were obtained for the different tectonic styles, based on a limited number of case histories (e.g., Youngs et al., 2003 for normal faults). more

  • New issue of Quaternary Perspectives out now

    A new issue of Quaternary Perspectives, the INQUA newsletter edited by Lyudmila Shumilovskikh, is out now. QP 25(1) includes a great report by Neta Wechsler on the 2017 PATA Days in New Zealand, more info about the 2019 PATA Days to be held in Israel, and a report on the Int’l Field Trip “From 1997 to 2016: three destructive earthquakes along the Central Apennine fault system”, 19 – 22 July 2017, Italy. Allan Ashworth informs in his INQUA president’s report about the changes that lie ahead and the upcoming challenges in re-structuring INQUA. Plus, there are interesting news on other potentially earthquake-related groups and projects such as 1701P (Late Quaternary records of coastal inundation due to earth surface deformation, tsunami, and storms), PALSEA2, HOLSEA, and GEODUST. The current issue of Quaternary Perspectives can be downloaded here (PDF, 2.57 MB) and will soon be archived at the new INQUA website (check it out!).

  • New papers on paleoseismology, tsunami, and active tectonics (May 2018)

    It looks like April/May is high season for publishing – or is it that all those papers you submitted right before Christmas are now making it through review…? Anyway, we have a lot of exciting stuff this month, including a number of studies on the Med, on Central Asia, and on New Zealand. Plus fault physics, subduction zones, glacial seismicity in N Europe, Malawi, and much more.

    Enjoy reading and let us know in case we’ve missed something. more

  • New papers on paleoseismology, tsunami, and active tectonics (April 2018)

    This month’s list of active tectonics papers contains a lot of tsunami and landslide studies, and some great stuff from Asia. Plus, New Zealand is in the focus of a number of papers. I guess it’s just about the right time period after the Kaikōura EQ to have a paper written and through review…

    Enjoy reading and happy Easter!

  • New papers on paleoseismology, tsunami, and active tectonics (March 2018)

    A month has passed and plenty of new papers have been published. This time we have a number of contributions on the tectonics of Italy and Asia, news about seismic hazards maps, and some great earthquake physics. Enjoy the latest papers on paleoseismology, tsunami, and active tectonics: more

  • New papers on paleoseismology, tsunami, and active tectonics (Feb 2018)

    These are the latest papers on paleoseismology, active tectonics, and archaeoseismology, today with a lot of contributions to active tectonics in Asia. Enjoy! more

  • New papers on paleoseismology, tsunami, and active tectonics (Jan 2018)

    I hope you’ve had a great start into the new year. A lot of new and exciting papers have been published at the end of the old one, including work on New Zealand and Europe. Enjoy reading and have fantastic new year 2018!
