Call for papers: Special Issue on the 2021 Northern Thessaly, Greece, earthquake sequence

The Bulletin of the Geological Society of Greece (BGSG) is inviting papers for a Special Issue on the 2021 Northern Thessaly, Greece, Earthquake Sequence. This sequence included a M6.3 mainshock on March 3, followed 32 hours later by a M6.0 event and a M5.6 event on March 12, and thousands of smaller aftershocks. This was the most significant earthquake sequence in northern Thessaly in 80 years, and the first large events in this area of Greece since the major upgrades of the seismological, strong motion and geodetic networks. Remote-sensing imagery is available from a number of satellites and other platforms. The sequence raises numerous questions related to fault interactions, blind faulting, near- and far-field ground motions, damage distribution, earthquake triggering, liquefaction phenomena and seismic hazard and seismotectonics of the Northern Thessaly.

BGSG welcomes contributions to the Special Issue that focus on these and other scientific aspects of this sequence.
Guest editors for the BGSG Special Issue on the Thessaly Earthquakes are:

Deadline for submission of manuscripts: 23 April 2021
Papers will be published online upon acceptance and will be collected into an issue of BGSG planned for June 2021.
