Sessions of interest at EGU 2016

The EGU General Assembly 2016 will be held in Vienna from 17-22 April, and the abstract deadline on 13 January 2016 is coming closer and closer. So if you haven’t already submitted your paper, keep this deadline in mind! Here are some warmly recommended sessions related to paleoseismology:

1) NH5.7/GM12.6/SSP3.20 Geological records of extreme wave events (co-organized). Conveners: Ed Garrett, Jessica Pilarczyk, Max Engel, Dominik Brill, Simon Matthias May

Even though I haven’t posted on this blog for years (sorry, Christoph…), I greatly appreciate the opportunity to advertise our session gathering all types of geological investigations, including both field studies and modelling approaches, which foster our understanding on tsunamis and high-magnitude storm surges. We welcome contributions on (i) sedimentary and geomorphological evidence of high-energy wave events from low and high energy environments, from low and high latitude regions and from coastal and offshore areas, (ii) novel dating approaches, (iii) numerical and experimental modelling studies of high-energy coastal sediment transport, and (iv) probabilistic tsunami hazard assessment based on geological data.


2) NH5.4 – Marine paleoseismology in the Mediterranean. Convener: Antonio Cattaneo  | Co-Conveners: Michael Clare, Gerassimos Papadopoulos, Alina Polonia, Michael Strasser
3) TS4.1/GD8.10/NH4.15/SM6.5 – The Interplay between Earthquakes, the Seismic Cycle and Long-term Deformation (Including the Outstanding Young Scientist Award talk by Åke Fagereng) (co-organized) Convener: Ylona van Dinther  | Co-Conveners: Alex Copley, Romain Jolivet, Francesca Funiciello , P. Martin Mai , Frédéric Herman
4) TS4.2/NH4.16/SM3.8 – Active Faults and the Earthquake Cycle (co-organized)  Convener: Esther Hintersberger  | Co-Conveners: Kris Vanneste, Matthieu Ferry, Angela Landgraf


Merry Christmas, a happy and prosperous New Year & see you in Vienna!
