5th PATA Days in Busan, Korea, will start on Sunday

It’s only a few days until the 5th PATA Days will start in Busan, Korea. This International INQUA Meeting on Paleoseismology, Active Tectonics and Archeoseismology is the first one to be held in Asia, and I am really excited. The organizers have put together an amazing program. After the icebreaker party on Sunday in the New Malden Pub we will go for a pre-meeting field trip on 22 September. Heading to Korea’s east coast, we will have a look at Quaternary terraces and nuclear power plant sites. The main part of the meeting (23rd and 24th) is dedicated to more than 25 talks on Earthquake Geology, Paleoseismology, Archeoseismology, Active Tectonics, and Seismic Hazard, flanked by poster sessions. Finally, the post-meeting field trip will lead us to active faults in SE Korea and archeoseismological sites. Continue reading “5th PATA Days in Busan, Korea, will start on Sunday”

6th INQUA International Workshop on Active Tectonics, Paleoseismology and Archeoseismology – 19-24 April 2015, Pescina, Italy

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

we are pleased to announce that the 6th  INQUA International Workshop on Active Tectonics, Paleoseismology and Archeoseismology will be held in Pescina (Abruzzo, Central Italy) in the period 19 – 24 April 2015.

We invite all scientists in the fields of earthquake geology, paleoseismology, archeoseismology, tsunami studies, earthquake engineering, seismic hazard assessment to join this event.

We will celebrate the centenary of the 1915 M7 Fucino earthquake, that has been one of the most devastating earthquakes occurred in the Apennines. The earthquake produced extensive surface faulting and left a strong imprint in the landscape giving rise to an incredibly rich seismological, geological and paleoseismological amount of studies in the last century.

Scientific sessions will be attended in the unique historical and cultural atmosphere of the Pescina village, followed by 2 days-field trip in the Fucino and L’Aquila area, retracing on the field the path of faults, landscapes, castles and ancient settlements. Moreover, a pre-congress archaeoseismic tour in Rome will be offered to all the participants.

Soon a specific website dedicated to this event will be available, where you will find more detailed and updated information, including information on the Participation, Travel Grants and Scientific Programme.

The Fucino 2015 Organizing Committee Continue reading “6th INQUA International Workshop on Active Tectonics, Paleoseismology and Archeoseismology – 19-24 April 2015, Pescina, Italy”

Last year the 3rd INQUA – IGCP567 Workshop on Paleoseismology, Archeoseismology and Active Tectonics took place in November in Morelia, Mexico. It was a great meeting and I have already posted a lot of photos here, here, here, here, and here. Now I have found the time to look at the video clips that I made. I’ve prepared a short movie with the highlights of the conference.
