Deform2015, thematic school about crustal deformation and earthquakes

The Deform2015 school on Active Deformation, Faults and Earthquakes from Measurements to Models will be held in Southern France from 7-13 February, 2015.
Over the past years, considerable advances have been made in observing crustal deformation at scales of seconds to thousands of years.
However, a unified view of the earthquake cycle is still missing. The thematic school aims at bringing together students and scientists
working on different aspects of active faulting and earthquake processes. This school will provide a state-of-the-art view of the technics used to study active deformation as well as a perspective on the current models integrating the growing corpus of available data.


  • GPS, InSAR, Optic Correlation
  • Earthquake seismology, Fracture Mechanics
  • Geomorphology, Dating Technics
  • Fault Geometry, Paleoseismology
  • Rheology and friction, Earthquake cycle modeling



The school is primary intended for PhD students and postdoctoral fellows, but master students (M2) and researchers are also welcomed.

Provisional list of main speakers

  • J. Freymueller (Univ. Fairbanks)
  • J.-M. Nocquet (Geoazur)
  • C. Lasserre (ISTerre)
  • M. Vallée (IPGP)
  • A. Bhat (IPGP)
  • Y. Klinger (IPGP)
  • J. Van der Woerd (EOST)
  • J.-P. Avouac (Univ. Cambridge)
  • S. Baize (IRSN)


The school will take place 7-13 of February 2015.


The school will be held at Séolane located in Barcelonnette, southern French Alps. The location is about 3h from Marseille and Grenoble. Transportation will be organized from Marseille


Registration shall be open very soon. Registration fee will be 200€ including all meals and accomodation. Fees are waived for participant payed by CNRS. Possibilities of financial support for students, whose lab could not totally support the cost of transportation and school.
