Earthquake Environmental Effects (EEE) have proven to be valuable for describing past earthquakes and their geological imprints. The ESI2007 is a relatively new intensity scale dedicated to such effects, but also integrating traditional macroseismic scales. Examples of ESI2007 intensities assigned to large earthquakes are being collected in the EEE web catalogue hosted by the ISPRA and ESI2007-related work is conducted in the framework of INQUA.
Another milestone now has been achieved with the ISPRA volume “Earthquake Environmental Effect for seismic hazard assessment: the ESI intensity scale and the EEE Catalogue”. This book is now available online here. It contains updates on the ESI2007, examples of applications, documentation of the EEE Android App, a huge reference list and, most importantly, the ESI2007 description in ten languages: Continue reading “ISPRA volume “Earthquake Environmental Effect for seismic hazard assessment: the ESI intensity scale and the EEE Catalogue””
It was quite a long break since I’ve posted the last literature round-up and that’s why the list is really long today. Here are the latest papers on paleoseismology, active tectonics, archaeoseismology and (paleo-)tsunamis. Continue reading “New paleoseismology literature”
Phew, this was an intense week and a great one too! The Fucino15 meeting on paleoseismology, active tectonics and archaeoseismology is over and hopefully everyone safely arrived back home. Here’s a brief report on some of the science that happened at the meeting. Since we had ~50 oral presentations, only an overview is possible here. In the following days I’ll add more details about the field trips. A big thank you to the Italian organizing team who did an amazing job – grazie mille! Continue reading “This was the Fucino15 meeting – part I”
What’s new in paleoseismology and active tectonics research? Here’s my latest digest of some recently published papers. As always, please feel free to point out ones that I’ve missed. Continue reading “Stuff to read – latest papers on paleoseismology, archaeoseismology, and tsunamis”
The 31st International Association of Sedimentologists Meeting of Sedimentology will be held in Krakow, Poland from 22 – 25 June, 2015.
The session “Application of sedimentary records in coastal environments for natural hazard assessment” aims on gathering contributions that document the application of sedimentary records of coastal changes (sea level changes) and disasters (storms, tsunamis) into coastal hazard assessment, as well as to present studies focusing on reconstructions of extreme coastal events in the past.

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. Continue reading “Paleoseismology at the 26th IUGG in Prague”
January seems to be the month of deadlines. Abstracts for the EGU2015 must be submitted until 7 January and there are two more deadlines that paleoseismicity.org readers should consider: Continue reading “Upcoming deadlines for INQUA2015 and Fucino2015”
The EGU2015 will be held from 12 – 17 April in Vienna, but the abstract deadline is much closer: Day after tomorrow, 7 January! So if you haven’t already done so, it’s time to have a look at paleoseismology-related sessions at EGU: Continue reading “Paleoseismology at EGU2015”
The Hokudan 2015 International Symposium on Active Faulting will be held from 12-17 January at Awaji Yumebutai International Conference Center and Hokudan Earthquake Memorial Park in Awaji City, Awaji Island, Japan.
Several recently published studies deal with paleoseismology and related fields, especially tsunamis and archaeoseismology.
