GSA Special Paper 479 – Geological Criteria for Evaluating Seismicity Revisited: Forty Years of Paleoseismic Investigations and the Natural Record of Past Earthquakes

A new book with focus on paleoseismology has been published by GSA. Special Paper 479 – “Geological Criteria for Evaluating Seismicity Revisited: Forty Years of Paleoseismic Investigations and the Natural Record of Past Earthquakes” is edited by Franck A. Audemard M., Alessandro Maria Michetti and James P. McCalpin. Again, a lot of interesting reading stuff for your flight to Corinth…


Introduction: Geological criteria for evaluating seismicity revisited: Forty years of paleoseismic investigations and the natural record of past earthquakes
Franck A. Audemard M. and Alessandro Maria Michetti

1. Paleoseismicity of a low-slip-rate normal fault in the Rio Grande rift, USA: The Calabacillas fault, Albuquerque, New Mexico
J.P. McCalpin, J.B.J. Harrison, G.W. Berger, and H.C. Tobin

2. Late Quaternary earthquakes on the Hubbell Spring fault system, New Mexico, USA: Evidence for noncharacteristic ruptures of intrabasin faults in the Rio Grande rift
Susan S. Olig, Martha C. Eppes, Steven L. Forman, David W. Love, and Bruce D. Allen

3. Large-magnitude late Holocene seismic activity in the Pereira-Armenia region, Colombia
Claudia Patricia Lalinde P., Gloria Elena Toro, Andrés Velásquez, and Franck A. Audemard M.

4. Evidence of Holocene compression at Tuluá, along the western foothills of the Central Cordillera of Colombia
Myriam C. López C. and Franck A. Audemard M.

5. Style and timing of late Quaternary faulting on the Lake Edgar fault, southwest Tasmania, Australia: Implications for hazard assessment in intracratonic areas
Dan Clark, Matt Cupper, Mike Sandiford, and Kevin Kiernan

6. Multiple-trench investigations across the newly ruptured segment of the El Pilar fault in
northeastern Venezuela after the 1997 Cariaco earthquake
Franck A. Audemard M.

7. Lake sediments as late Quaternary paleoseismic archives: Examples in the northwestern Alps and clues for earthquake-origin assessment of sedimentary disturbances
Christian Beck

8. Late Pleistocene-early Holocene paleoseismicity deduced from lake sediment deformation and coeval landsliding in the Calchaquíes valleys, NW Argentina
Reginald L. Hermanns and Samuel Niedermann

9. Rupture length and paleomagnitude estimates from point measurements of displacement-A model-based approach
Glenn Biasi, Ray J. Weldon II, and Kate Scharer
