February 6, 2015 | in The Friday LinksTemperatures were falling the last days and it’s not only quite cold, but I catched a cold the last days. Let’s see what we can do here. Today is Friday and since I’m sitting at the airport without proper WiFi, this Friday Links post will be… lacking links. Here is your Friday!

It’s been a while since the last update on paleoseismology literature. BSSA’s latest issue has some interesting studies that you should check, and there’s even more to discover. Also, there is some new work on (paleo-)tsunamis and historic large earthquakes. If you feel that important new papers are missing, drop us a mail! more

Spain may not be as famous for its earthquakes as Greece, Turkey or Italy, but significant events do shake the western part of the Mediterranean, too. Numerous paleoseismological and archaeoseismological studies as well as research on historical quakes have been undertaken on the Iberian peninsula. A new book was now published by the IGME which collects all the information currently available on the geological effects of earthquakes in Spain. The book is in Spanish and available for free download here:
The catalogue includes 44 quakes between 218 BC and AD 2011.
