During January 13-17, in 2020, Hokudan 2020, an international symposium on active faulting, was held in Awaji City, Japan, in order to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the Kobe earthquake. Along with recent progress in active fault research, we discussed earthquake outreach just in front of the surface rupture of the earthquake. Here I want to share some stories behind the fault preservation museum in the earthquake memorial park and some ideas about what we can do to improve earthquake awareness.more

US Bursaries to attend the INQUA congress in Dublin2019-02-25 | in Meeting
The INQUA Congress in Dublin will be the event for Quaternary science this year, but Dublin is quite expensive and many ECRs will need travel support. While the application deadline for the INQUA grants has already passed, there is still an option for early career scientists from the US to get up to US$ 2,000. See the INQUA Dublin website for details and make sure to not miss the deadline March 15, 2019.

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 & tsunamis2019-01-25 | in Meeting | one response
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.

EGU 2019 abstract deadline approaching2019-01-08 | in Meeting
As every year just after the holidays, the abstract deadline for the EGU General Assembly in Vienna (April 7-12, 2019) is approaching. This year, it is on Thursday, 10 January 2019, 13:00 Central European Time.
This year, it seems that there is a strong focus on Earthquake Tectonics and Crustral Deformation (TS5) with 11(!) sessions focusing on this topic:
- Paleoseismicity, active faulting, surface deformation, and the implications on seismic hazard assessment (Fault2SHA) (co-organized)
- Understanding fault growth and interaction over a range of spatial and temporal scales
- Integrated approaches to bridge Long-term Tectonics and Earthquake cycles: Observations, Experiments, and Models (co-organized)
- Earthquakes, active tectonics, and seismic hazard in regions of slow lithospheric deformation (co-organized)
- Crucial characteristics of earthquakes that generate tsunamis from geologic observations and numerical models (co-organized)
- Active Tectonics and Geodynamics of Anatolia
- Understanding large subduction earthquakes and tsunamigenesis by integrating geological and geophysical observations, laboratory results, and numerical modeling (co-organized)
- The Mechanics of Faulting from shallow to deep earthquakes: Interplay between multiple length scales. (co-organized)
- Earthquake foreshocks: identification, observation, modeling, and lessons to be learned (co-organized)
- Earthquake Source Processes: Recent Advances in Observation, Imaging, and Modeling (co-organized)
- Long-term evidence from past great earthquakes: critical observations and constraints for seismic hazard assessment (co-organized)
Each of them sounds exciting and worth contributing, so I am looking forward to a packed programm of earthquake tectonic – themed sessions!
However, if you cannot decide where to submit your abstract to, please consider our session on “Paleoseismicity, active faulting, surface deformation, and the implications on seismic hazard assessment” (TS5.1/GM4.5/NH4.16/SM3.10) at the following link:
