This will be the last paper list of the year, time is flying. We have classical paleoseismological studies, historical earthquake research, a few papers on secondary effects, but also studies looking into more general physics questions of large earthquakes. Enjoy reading!
The 12th international PATA Days will be held in Los Andes, Chile, 6-11 October, 2024. PATA stands for Paleoseismology, Active Tectonics, Archaeoseismology and it is the main activity of the paleoseismology community within INQUA’s TERPRO commission.
More and more papers emerge on the February, 2023 earthquakes in Turkey and the East Anatolian Fault System. Additionally, we have a database of paleoseismology studies in New Zealand (spoiler: it’s a lot!) and many more papers on paleoseismology and tectonic geomorphology. Enjoy reading!
This month’s paper list has an usually large number of studies on active tectonics of the Balkans and southern Europe. Is this a sampling bias? Perhaps. Don’t hesitate to send recommendations if you publish something cool that you’d like to see included. Enjoy reading!
I’m a bit late this month, so the list is a bit longer. This time we have lots of coastal and offshore studies, even a seafloor earthquake rupture! Enjoy reading.
For many geologists the field season is up ahead or has already started, but perhaps you will find some time to read through the latest literature? Or you can use the winter season in the southern hemisphere to enjoy a good read? It would be a pity to miss some of these really interesting studies. Enjoy!
This month’s list of papers includes the first few studies on the devastating earthquakes in Türkiye in February, 2023. Apart from that, we also have important work in archaeoseismology and great studies from New Zealand, an interesting shallow earthquake in the Tarim Basin, updates on surface displacement hazard and strain rate estimations, and papers on the Med and East Africa. Enjoy reading!
The first papers related to the 6 Feb, 2023, Türkiye Earthquakes are already published, but this month’s list has also interesting studies on Asian tectonics, the Med, and the Americas. Enjoy reading!
A new special issue has been published in Quaternary International. Earthquake Geology and Seismic Hazards: From Earthquake Mapping of Historical and Prehistoric Earthquakes to Paleoseismology contains contributions from the PATA Days in Greece, 2018, and the INQUA Congress in Dublin in 2019. The SI collects an editorial and six research papers:
