Session on “Seismic hazard modeling”: 86th National Congress of the Società Geologica Italiana, 18-20 September 2012

The Italian Geological Society (Societą Geologica Italiana), founded in 1881, organizes its 86th meeting in Calabria, Southern Italy (18-20 September 2012). The meeting is entitled

THE MEDITERRANEAN: A GEOLOGICAL ARCHIVE FROM PAST TO THE PRESENT

http://www.sgi2012.unical.it/info_eng.html

Within this meeting, we will held a session on Seismic Hazard Modelling.

We invite those of you interested to consider participating to the meeting and presenting an abstract (in ours or any other session).

The deadline for abstract submission is 30 April 2012.

TS2.1 – SEISMIC HAZARD MODELING

Conveners: Barba S., Di Bucci D., Gulen L., Pace B., Papanikolaou I., Valensise G., Visini F.

The purpose of the session is to discuss the factors that help to assess the regional and local seismic hazard in the Mediterranean region. We encourage works that present new data (active tectonics, geodetic measurements, hydro and geochemical observations, new dating techniques, historical and instrumental seismicity, site effects, earthquake effects on people and environment), and different methodological approaches (methods based on deformation and/or slip rates, classical and/or innovative seismotectonic methods, classical and/or innovative probabilistic methods). We welcome methodological discussion and applications to large towns and critical infrastructures, as well as case studies on the Calabrian Arc, where large and frequent earthquakes occur.
