  • Postdoc position at Oxford University: Palaeoseismology of Central Asian Earthquake Ruptures

    There is a wonderful, amazing, extraordinary postdoc position open at Oxford University: Palaeoseismology of Central Asian Earthquake Ruptures.

    We seek to appoint a postdoctoral research assistant to undertake investigations of large earthquakes within the interior of Asia. The post is part of a project funded by the Leverhulme Trust called EROICA. The successful candidate will work closely with Professor Richard Walker, and will join a vibrant community of active tectonics researchers in Oxford within the Earthquake Geology and Geodesy group.

    The researcher will be responsible for the detailed mapping of palaeo-earthquake ruptures, the construction of slip distributions from individual earthquakes, the analysis of high-resolution satellite imagery, the construction of digital topographic models, and the selection of sites for long-term slip-rate determination using field investigation. The PDRA will also be involved in planning and carrying out fieldwork to verify remote-sensing observations, to collect samples for dating, and to excavate and interpret palaeo-seismic trenches. We expect the researcher to help in supervising doctoral and masters student research projects, in addition to undertaking their own research.

  • Challenges & Conclusions from the 6th Int’l Colloquium on Historical earthquakes & Paleoseismology studies, Han-sur-Lesse, Belgium

    The 6th Int’l Colloquium on Historical earthquakes & Paleoseismology studies took place in October 2018 in Han-sur-Lesse, Belgium. Our colleagues Koen Van Noten, Thierry Camelbeeck, and  Thomas Lecocq have put together a nice summary of this event, pointing out future challenges in the field:

    From 24 to 26 October 2018 55 scientists from 14 countries gathered at Han-sur-Lesse in Belgium for the annual gathering of the Colloquium on Historical earthquakes and Seismology. During this well attended conference, four invited keynote talks, 27 oral and 16 poster contributions were presented. Topics in this multidisciplinary colloquium spanned four themes. The first three themes are recurrent themes in this Colloquium series and focused on (1) Seismology and Historical earthquakes, (2) Paleoseismology and (3) Archaeoseismology. The organisers also specifically wanted to focus on (4) Earthquakes and natural caves; a discipline in which major progress was recently made. This topic was heavily debated during the field trip to the Han-sur-Lesse and Rochefort caves on 25 October 2018. Hereinafter we summarise what was presented (see program) by the attendants and which challenges seismologists – and friends – face these days.

  • IAS Rome 2019 – session on paleoseismology & tsunamis

    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.
