Paleoseismology at the 26th IUGG in Prague

The 26th IUGG meeting will be held in Prague from 22 June – 2 July, 2015. Deadline for abstracts is 31 January, early bird registration ends 10 April.

The IUGG-IASPEI symposium 8b – Lithospheric Stress and Strain: Observations and Modeling invites contributions in the field of paleoseismology (and other disciplines). The symposium is chaired by Oliver Heidbach, Marco Bohnhoff and Kevin Furlong.

Symposium description

The main goal of this session is to bring together researchers with a focus on monitoring and
modeling of the deformation and stress field of the lithosphere. The emphasis will be on interdisciplinary
synthesis and on technical advances in monitoring and modeling techniques
as well as on data analysis. The integration of data from monitoring and experiments are
integrated by means of numerical and analogue modeling to achieve new insights into geodynamic
processes such as earthquake cycles, plate tectonics, basin evolution, and mantle
convection. To constrain such models, data satellite geodesy (GPS, InSAR) as well as data
from stress indicators (hydrofracs, borehole breakouts, earthquake focal mechanism solutions)
are used. Furthermore, monitoring data can be related to physical and rheological
properties of the lithosphere by means of modeling. Particular interest is on research which
compares and/or combines geodetic observations with data from other sources (e.g. seismology,
paleoseismology, structural geology). Contributions may regard, but are not limited
to, studies of: 1.) Integrated interdisciplinary interpretation and modeling of stress and strain
observations; 2.) Finite geologic strain versus geodetic strain; 3.) Relationship between crustal
deformation and heat flow; 4.) Mechanical anisotropy of the lithosphere; 5.) Correlation
between plate motions, mantle flow, seismic anisotropy, stress orientations and plate tectonic
forces; 6.) Role of fluid pressure in the earthquake cycle; 7.) Relative importance of the postseismic
processes such as afterslip, poroelastic rebound and viscoelastic relaxation.
