3 sessions on paleoseismology and earthquake-triggered mass movements at 19th Int’l Sedimentological Congress

The 19th International Sedimentological Congress from 18 to 22 August 2014 in Geneva, Switzerland will see three sessions related to subaquatic paleoseismology and earthquake-triggered landslides and turbidites.

More sessions on tectonics will be held as well. Deadline for abstract submission and travel grant application is 30 April 2014.


  1. Subaquatic paleoseismology: records of large Holocene earthquakes in marine and lacustrine sediments
  2. Environmental signal propagation through sediment routing systems: turning geomorphology into stratigraphy from land to sea
  3. Outwash depositional systems: from glaciers to stratigraphic architectures
  4. Rapid climate/environmental changes in Mesozoic greenhouse world
  5. Sedimentology of extreme events
  6. Scientific Drilling for unraveling the sedimentary records of past tectonic, climatic and environmental processes
  7. Turbidity current, subaqueous mass flow and mass movement processes – recent insights and future research directions
  8. Modern and ancient drainage networks in tectonically active settings
  9. Developing the future geosciences workforce
  10. Experimental modeling of alluvial systems: understanding processes and morphologies
  11. Transport and sedimentation of pyroclasts in water
  12. Carbonate mounds in shallow and deep time – COCARDE
  13. Recent developments in geomicrobiology of hypersaline systems
  14. What’s up with varves?
  15. Sedimentary hosted mineralization and placer deposits (Mineral deposits of sedimentary successions)
  16. High-resolution terrestrial archives of climate change across the Mediterranean
  17. Phosphorus, phosphorites and marine authigenesis: sedimentology, geochemistry and environments of formation
  18. Mesozoic to Cenozoic marine and terrestrial silica cycling – from data to models
  19. Measuring time in sedimentary successions
  20. Measuring and estimating rates of sedimentary processes
  21. Non-marine carbonates and basin hydrology
  22. Sedimentary dynamics and depositional controls in mudrocks
  23. Climate changes on continental shelves: natural events and human impact
  24. Sedimentary record of wind-driven hydro-morphodynamics in shallow lakes, lagoons and epeiric seas
  25. Hot vents, cold seeps, terrestrial and marine crusts: the challenge of non-classic carbonates
  26. Role of benthic microfossils in shallow-water carbonate sedimentation
  27. Radiolarite events in Earth history
  28. Provenance signatures in modern and ancient sediment dispersal systems
  29. Abrupt climate and environmental changes recorded by terrestrial sedimentary archives
  30. Tectonic controls on carbonate platform architecture
  31. Triassic to Jurassic basin analysis in the Tethyan realm
  32. Microbial biominerals: their formation, transformation and diagenesis
  33. Sedimentological, stratigraphic, and geochemical archives of the late Paleozoic ice age
  34. Palaeogeography, palaeoecology and resource geology in the geological past
  35. Sediments, archives of global environmental change during deep time
  36. Diagenesis in carbonate rocks
  37. Applications of X-ray computed tomography in sedimentology
  38. Extraterrestrial Sedimentology
