Sessions paleoseismologists might like at EGU2014

The EGU2014 will take place from 27 April – 2 May, 2014 in Vienna, Austria. The call for abstracts is open and submission deadline is 16 January, 2014. So it’s time to start thinking about which sessions would be interesting – not only for presenting own work, but also for listening to great talks. Here’s a list of sessions that a paleoseismologist could find interesting:

Sessions pretty closely related to paleoseismology

Not exactly paleoseismological, but also interesting
