Interdisciplinary Tsunami Science Session at AGU

Our colleague Jessica Pilarczyk will chair an Interdisciplinary Tsunami Science Session at the AGU Fall Meeting:

Dear paleoseismicity.org members,

We invite you to submit an abstract to the session, “Interdisciplinary Tsunami Science” at the Fall 2018 American Geophysical Union Meeting, to be held in Washington DC 10-14 December. The session is a continuation of the interdisciplinary tsunami sessions that have been held the past two fall meetings. We hope that you can contribute with abstracts to this session. The session description is below.

The deadline to submit an abstract is 1 August 2018, 11:59 P.M. EDT/3:59 +1 GMT.

The URL’s for the session and the abstract submission for this session are:

NH021: Interdisciplinary Tsunami Science

Session ID: 46945

Tsunamis are one of the most devastating natural disasters, with the potential for inflicting huge damage along wide stretches of coastal areas. Recent tsunami events have demonstrated that the tsunami risk has grown tremendously since the last ocean-wide tsunami of 1964, primarily due to the expansion of coastal development and the maritime communities. Tsunami science has become one of the most inter-disciplinary research areas. Social science, applied mathematics, engineering, and geology are as important to tsunami research as traditional seismology and oceanography. This session provides a broad forum for cross-disciplinary studies and invites contributions from all areas of tsunami science including: fundamental and basic research; forecast and warning procedures for current and future events; investigation of geologic records and hindcasting of past events; response, mitigation, and recovery strategies; tsunami observations; socio-economic impacts; and hazard and risk studies from tsunamis generated by earthquakes, landslides, volcanic eruptions, meteorological phenomena, and meteorite impacts.
