  • Please join INQUA TERPRO to engage in the elections for the next intercongress period!

    Dear friends of earthquake geology and paleoseismology,

    Due to recent changes in General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR), we need to ask you to sign up again for the TERPRO mailing list online via
    https://inqua.org/commissions/terpro/join
    INQUA is committed to the standards of the GDPR, which means that explicit consent is required to receive news and updates from TERPRO.
    By signing up you will become a member of TERPRO without any obligations, you’ll just receive news about the INQUA commission on Terrestrial Processes.

    Please note that this is necessary even if you sent an email to Daniel Krohling earlier. If you have signed up already, everything is fine. We apologise for this inconvenience.

    INQUA will very soon begin the process of calling for nominations and the election for all Commission Officers for the 2019-2023 period. In order to participate,
    you must have signed up via the website, these are the lists INQUA will use. The future direction of the Commission can only reflect the will of the community
    at large if the community is engaged and has signed up.

    Thanks for your understanding and all the best,

    Christoph, Petra & Ioannis

  • New issue of Quaternary Perspectives out now

    A new issue of Quaternary Perspectives, the INQUA newsletter edited by Lyudmila Shumilovskikh, is out now. QP 25(1) includes a great report by Neta Wechsler on the 2017 PATA Days in New Zealand, more info about the 2019 PATA Days to be held in Israel, and a report on the Int’l Field Trip “From 1997 to 2016: three destructive earthquakes along the Central Apennine fault system”, 19 – 22 July 2017, Italy. Allan Ashworth informs in his INQUA president’s report about the changes that lie ahead and the upcoming challenges in re-structuring INQUA. Plus, there are interesting news on other potentially earthquake-related groups and projects such as 1701P (Late Quaternary records of coastal inundation due to earth surface deformation, tsunami, and storms), PALSEA2, HOLSEA, and GEODUST. The current issue of Quaternary Perspectives can be downloaded here (PDF, 2.57 MB) and will soon be archived at the new INQUA website (check it out!).

  • New INQUA website and TERPRO online membership form

    INQUA has a wonderful new website: https://inqua.org/. Most importantly, it now has a form to register with the TERPRO commission (becoming a member = subscribing to the mailing list): https://inqua.org/commissions/terpro/join. Becoming a member doesn’t lead to any obligations, but comes with two advantages:
    1) You will be informed about TERPRO news every now and then;
    2) You’ll have the right to vote for the new TERPRO leadership!

    There are a couple of changes ahead of us, let’s make sure the earthquake community makes itself heard. During the past years, INQUA-TERPRO has always supported our PATA Days meetings by sponsoring travel grants for
    early career researchers and researchers from developing countries. You joining TERPRO will help to continue that amazing work and to support PATA Days, ECRs & DCRs in the future. So please register!

    Thanks and see you in Thessaloniki: https://www.patadays2018.org/

  • PATA Days in Israel 19-27 September 2019 – save the date!

    Dear friends and colleagues,

    Please save the date for the 10th PATA Days in Israel: 19-27 September, 2019.

    The pre-conference field trip from 19-22 September will lead to the Dead Sea and to Jerusalem, and we will see seismites, active faults, archaeoseismology, sinkholes, lake levels and tectonics. The main conference will be held from 22-27 September in Caesarea and the Sea of Galilee, including presentations, posters and half-day field trips focused on tsunamis, archaeoseismology and active faults!

    See you all in sunny Israel!

    The meeting will be supported by the INQUA/TERPRO Focus Group Earthquake Geology and Seismic Hazards (EGSHaz).

  • New dates for 2017 PATA Days in NZ: 13 – 16 November, 2017

    We are pleased to announce new dates for the 2017 PATA Days Meeting: Monday 13th – Thursday 16th November, 2017.

    The meeting will be held in Blenheim, at the top of the South Island, at the northern end of the Marlborough Fault System and 30 km above the southern Hikurangi subduction zone. The first full day of the meeting will be a field trip to view some of the northern fault ruptures of the 2016 Kaikoura earthquake. This will be followed by three days of talks and presentations at conference venues in Ward and Blenheim. Meeting attendees are advised to arrive in Blenheim by the 12 November, and to arrange accommodation in Blenheim for 5 nights (12 – 17 November). There will also be an optional post-meeting field trip from Friday 17 – Sunday 19 November. The post-meeting field trip will start in Blenheim and finish in Christchurch. The meeting is supported by INQUA and the main annual event of the IFG EGSHaz.

    We look forward to welcoming you to New Zealand and sharing some science from our recently very active plate boundary. Find more information at the official conference website: https://www.gns.cri.nz/Home/News-and-Events/Events/PATA more

  • Field trip to epicentral areas of Central Apennines, Italy, earthquakes from 19-22 July, 2017

    If you are interested in visiting the epicentral areas of the recent earthquakes in the Central Apennines, Italy, this is your chance: A four days field trip will be held from 19-22 July, 2017, led by researchers who have studied the earthquake effects in detail. The trip focusses on the fault system that ruptured during the 1997 Umbria Marche, 2009 L’Aquila, and 2016 Norcia events. The trip is organised by scientists from Italy, France, UK, and Greece, and supported by a number of universities, state agencies, and INQUA, with the Università di Camerino as the main coordinator.

    More information will be published soon. more

  • TERPRO business meeting at the INQUA2015 congress in Nagoya

    The INQUA 2015 congress in Nagoya will not only be the place to catch up with latest science news, but also to elect new commissions and project leaders and to plan and co-ordinate the ongoing activities for the inter-congress period. Therefore, think about joining the relevant business meeting! INQUA is organized in several commissions, of which TERPRO (Terrestrial Processes) is the one which covers paleoseismology, active tectonics and tectonic geomorphology. The IFG Palacte (Int’l Focus Group Paleosesimology/active tectonics) is a sub-organization of TERPRO itself. The TERPRO Business Meeting will be held on the evening (19:00-20:30) of Tue, 28 July in room 431, and will focus on the new Commission structure and programs for the intercongress period 2015 – 2019. more
