6th Int’l Colloquium Historical earthquakes & paleoseismology, 24-26 Oct, 2018, Han-sur-Lesse (BEL)

24 October, 2018 - 26 October, 2018


The colloquium is the 6th of a series that began in 2013 in Paris with the colloquium “Macroseismicity: sharing and use of historical data”. The main topics are: historical earthquakes, macroseismology, archeoseismology, paleoseismology, earthquake catalogues and databases, active faults, seismotectonics, neotectonics, and their contribution to the knowledge of seismic hazard and a better understanding of the long term seismic activity. A specific session will be devoted to earthquake effects in caves.

Confirmed Invited Keynote Lectures:

  • Aurélia Hubert-Ferrari (Université de Liège): Present-day knowledge and questions about seismic versus aseismic activity of the Anatolian Faults in Turkey integrating historical earthquakes, paleoseimic studies and creep evidenced by Insar studies.
  • Hélène Dessales (Ecole Normale Supérieure de Paris): Analysis of post-earthquakes reconstructions in Pompei (RECAP Program).
  • Eric Calais (Ecole Normale Supérieure de Paris): A new paradigm for large earthquakes in stable continental plate interiors.
  • Klaus-G. Hinzen (University of Cologne): Elements for a comprehensive archeoseismological study.
