Subduction zones are convergent plate boundaries, where oceanic plates sink into the mantle. They host the largest earthquakes, but also slow slip and tremors. The dynamics of subduction zones, their ability to host episodic tremor and slip, their segmentation depend on several parameters, such as the age and structure of the incoming plate, the geotherm, the presence of fluids, or the thickness and geology of the overriding plate. The factors controlling the time of occurrence and size of the earthquakes, […]
ICTP is organizing a workshop and school on the mechanics of the earthquake cycle that will start on Monday October 16th and will be held in Trieste. The program will involve a series of lectures, talks, computer exercises with ample time for posters and discussions. Lecturers that confirmed their participation include: J.-P. Ampuero, Université Côte d'Azur, France J. P. Avouac, CALTECH, USA L. Dal Zilio, ETH Zurich, Switzerland A. Gualandi, University of Cambridge, UK R. Harris, USGS California, USA J. […]
The meeting aims to bring together scientists and associated research from cognate sub-disciplines of coastal geology (e.g., geomorphologists, sedimentologists, stratigraphers, geoarchaeologists) and modelling (e.g., process, sediment transport, morphodynamic, inundation, and coastal erosion). Preliminary details can be found in the announcement: Brazil_1st_Announcement copy Further details will be forthcoming in the next few weeks. Abstracts are due May 29th and can be emailed to email@example.com.
EDITH is proud to announce that the next project meeting will be held in Israel during November 13-16, 2023! We’ll meet for an in-presence workshop, followed by two days of field trip along the Dead Sea Fault, one of the most studied active fault systems worldwide! Following the Project’s rationale, we will focus on the characteristics of one of the most studied fault zones in the world, across different temporal and spatial scales/resolutions. We’ll discuss the recent results from tectonic […]
3rd Mediterranean Geoscience Union meeting
Registration: A registration portal will be made available in early September. We expect early bird registration costs to be ~£110 for students, retired and unemployed and a full rate early bird cost will be ~£240. This discounted rate is expected to be available until mid-november. Registration includes the ice-breaker reception, two days of conference including coffee breaks, lunches, poster session refreshments and the conference dinner. Abstract Deadline November 15th 2023
