PATA Days in Israel 19-27 September 2019 – save the date!

Dear friends and colleagues,

Please save the date for the 10th PATA Days in Israel: 19-27 September, 2019.

The pre-conference field trip from 19-22 September will lead to the Dead Sea and to Jerusalem, and we will see seismites, active faults, archaeoseismology, sinkholes, lake levels and tectonics. The main conference will be held from 22-27 September in Caesarea and the Sea of Galilee, including presentations, posters and half-day field trips focused on tsunamis, archaeoseismology and active faults!

See you all in sunny Israel!

The meeting will be supported by the INQUA/TERPRO Focus Group Earthquake Geology and Seismic Hazards (EGSHaz).

Papers on harbours & archaeoseismology in the Med

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: Continue reading “Papers on harbours & archaeoseismology in the Med”

Special Issue in QI – Quaternary Earthquakes: Geology & Palaeoseismology for Seismic Hazard Assessment

Dear friends and colleagues,

We are happy to announce that our Special Issue from the 2015 PATA Days in Fucino is finally published in Quaternary International. This wonderful workshop commemorated the centenary of the 1915 Fucino Earthquake, and
we have seen some great active faults in the Central Apennines
and palaeoseismological research sites during the field trips. The meeting was organized by ISPRA, INGV and University of Insubria and promoted by INQUA TERPRO. Continue reading “Special Issue in QI – Quaternary Earthquakes: Geology & Palaeoseismology for Seismic Hazard Assessment”
