The PATA Days are the meeting on Paleoseismology, Active Tectonics, and Archaeoseismology, organised within the framework of INQUA‘s TERPRO commission. The official website has been launched, containing all infos on the programme, field trips, grant applications, the venue, the abstract template, and the deadlines. Check it out: https://www.patadayschile.cl.
Abstract submission will open 4 March and the deadline for the 4-page abstracts is 29 March. No short abstracts this time.
See you all in Chile in October!

We are aiming to organize a special issue titled: Earthquakes and active tectonics in regions of slow lithospheric deformation: towards a re-evaluation of Stable Continental Regions (SCRs). This special issue will complement a session on Intraplate Tectonics and Seismicity at the 37th International Geological Congress to be held in Busan, Korea in September 2024. The abstract for the IGC session is below, followed by our solicitation for contributions to the special issue. If you are interested in submitting an article to the special issue, please let us know a tentative title your list of authors by the 15th of December 2023.
We hope that you will join us in Busan and consider submitting your intraplate research to our special issue.
The editors: Klaus Reicherter, Beau Whitney, Sambit Naik, Pierre Arroucau, Christoph Grützner, Stéphane Baize, Jim McCalpin
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.
The second circular for the TERPRO INQUA summer school on Active Faults and Volcano-Tectonics, 25-28 Sept., 2023, in Naples, Italy has been published.
INQUA TERPRO’s project TPPT had decided to not organise PATA Days in the years with an INQUA congress, but instead to run a much smaller summer school for ECRs and DCRs. The summer school on Active Faults and Volcano-Tectonics will be held from 25-28 September in Naples (Italy). The event will be hosted by DiSTAR (Department of Earth Sciences, Enviroment and Resources , University of Naples «Federico II»).
The first two days will include lectures by researchers who will present state of the art studies on active faults. The second part includes two field trips in areas crucial for understanding active faults and the interplay between tectonics and volcanic activity. Download the circular (PDF) here.
The 2022 PATA Days were held in Provence, France, from 25 – 30 September. Traditionally, we publish 4-page extended abstracts. The full volume containing 58 contributions is now available for download here: https://zenodo.org/record/7736477.

Main topics are: Historical Earthquakes, Palaeoseismology, Archaeoseismology,
Macroseismology, Seismotectonics. A special session will be dedicated to the recent catastrophic
earthquakes in SE Turkey and Northern Syria. On the third day a field trip will be organized that
will include visits to the ruins of the 1953 earthquakes, damages that occurred due to the 2014
earthquakes, expression of active tectonics and an overall experience of the morphology/landscape
of the island, as a result of intense seismotectonic activity.
Finally, after Posidi, Greece, 2018, we had a successful PATA Days meeting! The meeting in 2019 was cancelled due to organisational problems and we held a student summer school instead in Prague. All plans were set for Chile in 2020, but it had to be cancelled twice because of Covid-19. Now it finally happened! The organisers Magali Rizza and Stéphane Baize and their wonderful team took us to Aix-en-Provence…

Still looking for a cool conference to attend this summer? Why not travel to Kyrgyzstan for the 17th International Symposium on Geo-disaster Reduction from 19-23 August 2019, organized by our friend Hans-Balder Havenith with Liège University, the Kyrgyz Institute of Seismology and Institute of Geomechanics and Mining, and the International Consortium on Geo-disaster Reduction (ICGdR)? more
