An interdisciplinary meeting on climate change and seismic hazards during the Holocene in the Mediterranean will be held in Aix en Provence on July 7 and 8, 2014. The colloquium is organized by and will take place at CEREGE with 4 half days dedicated to specific areas of the Mediterranean region (SW-Mediterranean; Aegean-Turkey; Levant-Middle East; NW-NE Africa).
Contributions are welcome (poster or oral). Abstracts might be send to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com by April 14, 2014. Please find more info here (pdf). more
I came across several interesting papers on paleoseismology and related disciplines, most of them published recently. They deal with “classical” paleoseismology, with earthquake environmental effects like coseismic landslides and tsunamis, and also with geomorphological indicators for active faulting. Let me know if I missed some! more
A special session on Tectonic Geomorphology will be held at the 8th International Symposium of Eastern Mediterranean Geology from 13-17 October, 2014, in Muğla, Turkey. The session “Tectonic geomorphology: coupling between crustal deformation and landscape evolution in the Eastern Mediterranean” will be chaired by Sarah Boulton, Mustapha Meghraoui, and M. Cihat Alçiçek. Abstract submission is possible until 15 May. more

A position as Sackler-Clarendon Associate Professor in Sedimentary Geology and Sackler Fellow in Earth Sciences is available at the Department of Earth Sciences in association with St Peter’s College at Oxford University. Applications from scientists familiar with sedimentary geology, petrology, and sedimentology are welcome. Also, researchers with experience in related disciplines like stratigraphy, palaeontology, mineralogy, geochemistry, geomorphology, and tectonics are encouraged to apply. Deadline for application is 15th April 2014. more
The Friends of the Pleistocene went on a fieldtrip few days ago to study the 4D Architecture of an Oblique Rift Margin in Baja California, NW Mexico. The tour focussed on the paleoseismology of the Borrega and Laguna Salada Faults, especially on the 1982 and 2010 surface ruptures, and took place fom 27 February to 2 March, 2014. You can download the detailed field guide and the road log here. more
The report on the earthquake environmental effects of the two M6 earthquakes that rattled Cephalonia earlier this year is now available on iBooks library for Mac and IOS. Plus, the report comes with interactive content and videos. Best viewed on an iPad. more
The Earthquake Geosurvey App by George Papathanassiou and Vasilis Kopsachilis has reached 500 downloads – congratulations! The App allows mapping earthquake environmental effects in post-earthquake surveys and is currently available for Android. An iOS version will come soon. Find more information about the app here at the official homepage or visit Google Play for download. more
