Bad news – the PATA Days in Chile are cancelled. The ongoing Corona crisis does not allow for proper planning and many restrictions are still in place. Visitors to Chile might need to quarantine, air travel might be restricted, and it is not clear when larger gatherings will become possible again. Postponing the PATA Days is not an option, because the preparations for PATA2022 in France are already making progress (update soon!). A huge thanks to the organisers for trying so hard and for all the work they have put into the organisation so far! Great job, team Chile! We hope that one day we can all enjoy your hospitality and the wonderful geology. This is perhaps a good time to watch again the virtual PATA2020 short meeting. Here is the official announcement of the organisers:more

On 18 December we held a short virtual PATA meeting, since the in-person meeting to be held in Chile had to be postponed to 2021. The PATA Days (Paleoseismology, Active Tectonics, Archaeoseismology) are the main event of INQUA TERPRO‘s earthquake science community, led by the project TPPT (Terrestrial Processes Perturbed by Tectonics). Most of us are starving for joint field trips and personal contacts, but it was nice to at least see everyone online – more than 170 people attended the 1.5 hrs event. The five main topics were:more

The 2020 PATA Days in Chile, originally planned for November this year, had to be postponed to November 2021. Let’s keep the enthusiasm for the realization of this nice congress in the coastal Atacama Desert of northern Chile! On 18 December, 2020 there will be a webinar including lectures on paleoseismology and seismic hazard, as well as an introduction to recent advances in active tectonics along the major northern Chile seismic gap. In addition, the first short-abstract volume in digital version will be released.more

Please make sure to register for the 2020 PATA Days in Chile before 28 February here: https://www.patadayschile.cl
You can also book your hotels here and submit the short abstracts. There’s only a limited number of places due to the remote venue in a wonderful resort hotel – first come, first served. The PATA Days (Paleoseismology, Active Tectonics, Archaeoseismology) is the largest int’l meeting for the paleoseismology community and supported by INQUA. In Chile, a lot of tsunami science will of course also happen.

Here’s the updated 1st circular with the new deadlines (PDF):
The INQUA Summer School on Active Tectonics and Tectonic Geomorphology was held in Prague from 24-27 September, 2019. This summer school was run by INQUA‘s IFG EGSHaz as part of the TERPRO commission. The event was hosted by the Institute of Rock Structure and Mechanics, Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic, Dpt. Neotectonics and Thermochronology. Main organizer was IFG co-leader Petra Štěpančíková. We would also like to thank MSc. Jakub Stemberk, Monika Hladká, Jana Šreinová, the deputy director Dr. Filip Hartvich, and all the staff involved for their professionalism and warm hospitality. Overall, 50 participants and 14 lecturers from 25 countries participated in the summer school.more
The second circular for the Summer School on Active tetonics in Prague, 24-27 September, 2019, is out now. Download here. We are sorry that the summer school is already fully booked. See you in Prague in September!
The event organised by the Institute of Rock Structure and Mechanics (Czech Academy of Sciences), Charles University in Prague (Faculty of Science), Masaryk University in Brno, and INQUA’s IFG EGSHaz. We are supported by, and work in the framework of, INQUA – the International Union for Quaternary Research, and the Czech Association of Geomorphologists (CAG) as a contributor and member of IAG.

1st circular: INQUA Int’l Summer School on Active Tectonics & Tectonic Geomorphology in Prague, 24-27 September 2019
The INQUA Focus Group on Earthquake Geology and Seismic Hazards (EGSHaz) will run the International Summer School on Active Tectonics and Tectonic Geomorphology in Prague from 24-27 September, 2019. This event replaces the PATA Days this year and aims mainly at MSc./PhD students and Early Career Researchers. Please note that this is not a classical PATA Days event where new science will be shown and discussed. The summer school is organized by the Institute of Rock Structure and Mechanics, Czech Academy of Sciences and the Charles University in Prague, Faculty of Science. Please find a pdf of the first circular here.
