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
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!
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

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

Almaty, the former capital of Kazakhstan and home to ~2 million people, is a rapidly growing, vibrant city, beautifully situated at the foothills of the mighty Zailisky Alatau, the northernmost mountain range of the Tien Shan at this longitude. The city sits on a huge alluvial fan with the snow-capped mountains in the background, reaching 5,000 m elevation. Almaty has suffered from earthquakes in its young history: in 1887, the Verny earthquake with a magnitude of about 7.3 had its epicentre a few kilometres west of the city but did not produce surface ruptures (Verny is the old name of Almaty). Only two years later, the M8 Chilik earthquake ruptured the surface 100 km to the southeast of Almaty. Finally, Almaty was heavily damaged by the 1911 Chon Kemin earthquake with a magnitude of ~8, which occurred on the southern flank of the Zailisky Alatau. In our new paper we now report on a fault that did not rupture in historical times, but surely did so in the Holocene – and this fault is right beneath the city. more

Today’s list of latest papers includes some classic paleoseismology stuff, interesting offshore studies, and a good portion of fault physics and geomorphology. Oh, and icebergs. Enjoy!

Time is running and the publishing machine doesn’t stop. Another month has passed, and here we are with a whole bunch of new and existing papers on paleoseismology, active tectonics, tsunami, and archaeosesimology. Lot’s of stuff from the Tien Shan this time, including my very own paper about which I will blog in detail later. Enjoy reading! more

These are the latest papers on paleoseismology, tsunami, and active tectonics. Lots of stuff on the Mediterranean, but we have studies from all over the world. Enjoy reading! more

While compiling the monthly paper round-up, I will of course miss some publications. This may be because I was in the field when the papers were published, because I don’t have an alert for the journals, or because my alerts didn’t include the right key words. For example, I missed a couple of 2017 papers by our colleagues from Mainz: more
