Submarine Paleoseismology Workshop at ETH Zurich, 16-18 July 2015

From 16-18 July, 2015, an interesting workshop will be held at ETH Zurich (Switzerland): Submarine Paleoseismology – Using giant piston coring within IODP to fill the gap in long-term records of great earthquakes.

Michael Strasser, one of the main organizer, names the aims of the workshop: “The main topic of the workshop is to discuss and define a strategy how and where we could best make use of giant piston coring efforts within the Integrated Ocean Discovery Program (IODP) to make some major advancements in submarine paleoseismology to constrain earthquake recurrence beyond historical times.


From the workshop website: “If you are interested in attending, please contact the workshop organizers and submit a brief statement of interest and a CV by May 15th to e-mail
We encourage applications from early-stage researchers who are willing to participate actively in discussions and planning. Graduate students will be additionally asked to submit a letter of support from their faculty advisor. Applicants will be informed of the outcome by end of May.
