The next TSK meeting (Tektonik – Strukturgeologie – Kristallingeologie) will be held in Jena, Germany, from 19-25 March, 2018. We have put together a great programme, including 2 days of workshops (photogrammetry, paleoseismology, balanced X-sections etc.), two wonderful field trips, and interesting sessions. If this isn’t convincing enough, check out the list of invited speakers! Come and visit me in Jena!

Dear friends and colleagues,
The PATA Days will return to Europe next year! Commemorating the 40th anniversary of the Thessaloniki Earthquakes, the meeting will be held in Greece from 25-30 June, 2018. Save the dates! Spyros Pavlides and Alex Chatzipetros will organize the scientific sessions from 25-27 June, and a summer school is planned for 28-30 June. After visiting the active faults of the US (2016) and New Zealand (2017), we will see some great sites in northern Greece. After that we plan to explore what active tectonics do look like in Argentina and Chile in 2020 (Huge thrusts!). More information and a 1st circular will follow very soon. See you all in Greece in June, γεια μας!

Special Issue in QI – Quaternary Earthquakes: Geology & Palaeoseismology for Seismic Hazard Assessment
Dear friends and colleagues,
We are happy to announce that our Special Issue from the 2015 PATA Days in Fucino is finally published in Quaternary International. This wonderful workshop commemorated the centenary of the 1915 Fucino Earthquake, and
we have seen some great active faults in the Central Apennines
and palaeoseismological research sites during the field trips. The meeting was organized by ISPRA, INGV and University of Insubria and promoted by INQUA TERPRO. more

Sarah Boulton and colleagues will convene an interesting session at the AGU Fall Meeting. They collect contributions on the development and application of geochronometres, techniques that most of us use in everyday life for dating landscape changes and fault activity. EP047: The development and application of chronometers in geomorphology.
Session DescriptionIsotopes and other quantitative tracers are widely used to quantify rates of geomorphic processes and to fingerprint sediment sources and sinks. However, these techniques, including short-lived fallout radionuclides, cosmogenic radionuclides, optically stimulated luminescence, and thermochronology, all have methodological assumptions that limit their usefulness in geomorphology. This session invites studies using geochemical methods to investigate the rates and progress of landscape change with a particular focus on geomorphic response to perturbations such as environmental change, anthropogenic impact, and tectonic drivers. We also welcome studies that consider new developments in geochronologic techniques or test the limitations and assumptions behind commonly employed methods.Primary Convener: Sarah J Boulton, Plymouth University, Plymouth, PL4, United KingdomConveners: Amanda C Henck Schmidt, Oberlin College, Oberlin, OH, United States, Paul R Bierman, University of Vermont, Burlington, VT, United States and Kevin P Norton, Victoria University of Wellington, Wellington, New Zealand

The following AGU session is of potential interest to the paleoseismology community:
Earthquake Rupture Processes, Confronting Field Observations and Models (25767)
In recent years, combined progresses in our understanding of earthquake mechanics and computation capabilities have allowed to develop numerical models that address earthquake mechanics at a variety of scales, from fault segmentation to co-seismic off-fault damage.
These theoretical progresses can potentially suggest new observations that can be tested by field or geodetic studies. In parallel, innovative technics in earthquake geology and active tectonics have allowed for a significant improvement in our capacity of detailed observation of earthquake ruptures. Hence, it is time to confront high-resolution observations with numerical and theoretical models to test these models and see in which direction observation should go. We welcome contribution testing earthquake mechanic models based on observational data (geodesy, field data…) as well as contribution suggesting new potential field observation, based on theoretical or numerical developments.Primary Convener: Yann Klinger, Institut de Physique du Globe de Paris, FranceConvener: Marion Thomas, University of Oxford, UK
