  • Active faulting session at EGU 2017: abstract deadline approaching

    As every year just after the holidays, the abstract deadline for the EGU General Assembly in Vienna (April 23-28, 2017)  is approaching.  This year, it is on Wednesday, 11 January 2016, 13:00 Central European Time.

    If you are still searching for a session to submit your abstract to, please consider our session on “Active faulting, surface deformation, and the earthquake cycle: new
    approaches, observations and insights” (TS5.3/EMRP4.3/NH4.9) at the following link:

  • New papers on paleoseismology, tsunami, and active tectonics (Jan 2017)

    I wish you a successful and wonderful new year 2017! May you find impressive faults and good outcrops, may your trenches always be in the right place, and may your samples return good results. If 2017 brings you something that would be of interest to the paleoseismicity.org community, please let us know. In the mean time, enjoy those reads: more

  • New papers on paleoseismology, tsunami, and active tectonics (Dec 2016)

    A continuous flow of images from the New Zealand earthquake reaches the earthquake geology community, and we’re probably all amazed by the coseismic offsets and other earthquake effects. However, the flow of papers on paleoseismology, tsunami, and active tectonics also does not stop and here is my digest for December. Enjoy reading!

  • New papers on paleoseismology, tsunami, and active tectonics (Nov 2016)

    While the attention is still on the seismic sequence in Italy, a number of new papers have been published on paleoseismology, tsunamis, and active tectonics. Enjoy reading!

  • Session on paleoseismology at the TSG-VMSG-BGA Joint Assembly (Liverpool, 4-6 Jan 2017)

    The first joint assembly of the Tectonic Studies Group (TSG), Volcanic and Magmatic Studies Group (VMSG), and British Geophysical Association (BGA) will be held at the University of Liverpool from 4-6 January, 2017. Among the many interesting sessions the following one will be of special interest for … well … us:
    S.12 – Earthquakes, palaeoseismology, and rates of fault slip: from milliseconds to millions of years. The session is chaired by Laura Gregory, Ed Garett, and Luke Wedmore, deadline for abstracts is 5 November. more

  • New papers on paleoseismology, tsunami, and active tectonics (Oct 2016)

    A lot of new papers have been published on paleoseismology, earthquake geology, active tectonics and tsunamis last month. We have research on slowly deforming regions, on the active tectonics of Mexico, New Zealand, Armenia, and Iran, new data from the Kumamoto earthquake, plus some marine/coastal paleoseismology and tsunami studies. Enjoy reading!

  • 5th International Tsunami Field Symposium, 3-7 September 2017, Lisbon/Algarve

    The 5th International Tsunami Field Symposium will be held from 3-7 September, 2017, in Lisbon, Portugal. In addition to the scientific sessions an interesting 3-days field trip will take the participants to the tsunami hot spots of the Algarve coast. Visit the official website for more information and make sure to save the date! more

  • Fault Displacement Hazards Workshop, Dec 8-9th, 2016 (and AGU Fall meeting session)

    Dear Colleagues,

    We would like to bring your attention to a workshop we are organizing on the topic of Fault Displacement Hazard Analysis (FDHA). The Workshop will be held December 8-9th at the U.S. Geological Survey Campus in Menlo Park, CA, and is timed to be the Thursday and Friday before the 2016 AGU Fall meeting so that international participants can plan to attend both the Workshop and AGU the following week.

    Workshop themes will include: more

  • New papers on paleoseismology, tsunami, and active tectonics (July 2016)

    Today’s paper round-up is rather short. Maybe this is due to the start of the field work season and many editors being involved in field research, maybe it’s just holiday season. Maybe I’ve missed some papers because I have been in the field, too. However, there are some very interesting studies, especially concerning tsunamis. Enjoy reading and please tell me what I’ve missed in the comments.
