Active Tectonics and Earthquake Geology at the GeoFrankfurt 2014

If you can’t find funding for attending the 5th Pata-Days in Busan, Korea, there is still the chance to see and present some good research on earthquake geology in Germany. There will be a session Active Tectonics and Earthquake Geology at the GeoFrankfurt 2014 meeting in late September, so don’t miss the deadline:

Dear colleagues,

Within the frame of the conference GeoFrankfurt 2014 we are organizing a session on Active Tectonics and Earthquake Geology (B13). The conference is held at the Goethe Universität at Frankfurt, 21-24 September 2014.

Conveners: Ioannis Koukouvelas, Kurt Decker and Klaus Reicherter

Deadline for abstract submission: 25 April, 2014

The session convenes poster and oral contributions aiming to the identification, interpretation and understanding of active tectonic processes, the seismic cycle of active faults, earthquake environmental effects, and case studies identifying active faults with multi-approach investigations.

We therefore welcome investigations of the Quaternary records of tectonic activity as well as neotectonic studies revealing young deformation histories with a focus on slip rates either seismic or aseismic, surface deformation (GPS), denudation rates, uplift, and subsidence rates on various time scales. Contributions analyzing surface deformation or faulting, secondary earthquake effects (e.g., landslides, liquefaction, tsunami), and palaeoseismological assessments of evidence for ground shaking are particularly welcome. 

We cordially invite everyone interested in participating in the session to contribute an abstract in English. For details on the conference schedule and venue please visit the official site of the conference at  

Templates for abstract submission and information on the formats of text, figures and tables are found at

Best regards

Ioannis Koukouvelas, Kurt Decker and Klaus Reicherter
