This time we have a number of studies on historical earthquakes, active tectonics studies from all around the world, a view review and methods articles, and plenty of tsunami stuff. Make sure to check out the new book on the geological record of extreme waves! Enjoy reading and let us know in case we’ve missed something.more

Time is flying, it feels as if I had posted the last paper updated just yesterday. However, a quick glance at the list shows that there are quite a few new studies that cover paleoseismology, seismic hazard, earthquake geology, etc. Let me know if I’ve missed something cool. Stay safe!more

Still looking for a cool conference to attend this summer? Why not travel to Kyrgyzstan for the 17th International Symposium on Geo-disaster Reduction from 19-23 August 2019, organized by our friend Hans-Balder Havenith with Liège University, the Kyrgyz Institute of Seismology and Institute of Geomechanics and Mining, and the International Consortium on Geo-disaster Reduction (ICGdR)? more

The 34th IAS meeting on sedimentology will take place in Rome from 10-13 September, 2019. There are several sessions that are of interest to the paleoseismology community, and session 7.11 is especially devoted to past earthquakes:
7.11: The sedimentary record of earthquakes, tsunamis, and catastrophic/extreme events.
Massimo Moretti (Bari University, Italy); Jasper Knight (Wits University, South Africa); Giuseppe Mastronuzzi (University of Bari Aldo Moro, Italy); Andreas Vött (Mainz University, Germany).
Extreme/catastrophic events are by definition rare and episodic, but they have occurred frequently throughout Earth’s history. High magnitude events such as earthquakes, tsunamis, large-scale landslides, extreme floods and storms, extraterrestrial impacts, etc. often leave a sedimentary imprint in the geological record. Nevertheless, recognition of extreme event traces in sedimentary successions is often difficult and may be ambiguous.
This session is focused on examples of seismites, tsunamites, and other sedimentary deposits that have been formed by extreme events. We encourage contributions including field-based examples discussing different approaches on data analysis and interpretation of these deposits. We also welcome studies on analogical modelling and numerical simulation for relationships between triggering processes and products of extreme events.
Deadline for early bird registration is 30 May 2019, abstract submission closes on 30 March.
