New papers on earthquakes, paleoseismology and a “lost fault”

The latest issue of the Seismological Research Letters (SRL) does not only have a very stylish cover, but also includes some papers that will be of interest for the fans of old earthquakes and environmental earthquake effects (EEEs). In the Historical Seismologist section, Bilham et al describe the hunt for a lost fault – that is, one that was described by Oldham in the 19th Century, but never really located and almost forgotten. Nice!

Other studies that caught my interest include Fielding et al. on the fault slip source model of the Van earthquake, Antonijevic et al. on the seismotectonic model of the Kraljevo seismic sequence, and Luzi et al. and Pezzo et al. with new data on the Emilia Romana earthquakes.

Few days ago, Ren et al. came up with a paper on slip rates of the Tazang fault (the termination of the Kunlun fault) in Tibet in Tectonophysics. Loreto et al. report on their work on the seismic source of the Calabria 1905 earthquake in Marine Geology. Paleoseismic deformation in Chile is subject of a paper by Garrett et al. and Smekalin et al. published data on paleoseismological investigations in Northern Mongolia.

Have fun reading!
