10th PATA Days, Chile

18 November, 2019 @ 08:00 - 17:00

PATAis the most relevant workshop on paleoseismology and active tectonics of the INQUA Focus Group “Earthquake Geology and Seismic Hazard (IFG EGSHaz)”. For first time in South America, we are honored to welcome the 10th PATA days in the hyperarid coastal Atacama Desert, located in the active continental margin formed by the subduction of the Nazca Plate beneath the South American Plate; a unique tectonic setting for the assessment of megathrust episodes, upper-plate paleo-earthquakes, and paleotsunami records, and their relationship with surface processes and landscape evolution at Quaternary timescale.We invite presentations on:

  • Active tectonics/neotectonics
  • Tectonic geomorphology
  • Surface faulting
  • Paleoseismology
  • Archaeoseismology
  • Tsunami and paleotsunami records
  • Earthquake-induced landslides
  • Liquefaction
  • Probabilistic Seismic Hazard Assessment
  • Probabilistic Fault Hazard Displacement Analysis
  • Quaternary geochronology
  • Shallow geophysics for seismic hazard assessment
  • Remote sensing of earthquake deformation (LiDAR, InSAR)
