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

Paleoseismology sessions at the INQUA Congress in Dublin, 25-31 July, 2019
Taking place every four years, the INQUA Congress is the meeting for Quaternary science. After Nagoya in 2015, the XX. Congress will be held in Dublin from 25-31 July, 2019.
Please make sure to check the following palaeoseismology-related sessions, abstract deadline is 9 January!
- Earthquake geology and seismic hazards: From earthquake mapping of historical and prehistoric earthquakes to palaeoseismology. (Convenors: Ioannis Papanikolaou, Stéphane Baize, Christoph Grützner)
- Palaeoseismology of plate interiors under Pleistocene climate changes. (Klaus Reicherter, Petra Štěpančíková, Małgorzata Pisarska-Jamroży, Poster only)
- Development of soft-sediment deformation structures (SSDS) and differences between non-seismic and seismic structures. (Małgorzata Pisarska-Jamroży, Tom Van Loon, Barbara Woronko, Andreas Boerner, Poster only)
- Subduction zone palaeoseismology. (Emma Hocking. Ed Garrett, Jasper Moernaut)
Also interesting for the earthquake community:
- Sea-level changes from minutes to millennia. (Simon Engelhart, Fengling Yu, Alar Rosentau, Gösta Hoffmann, Poster only)
- The sedimentary record of tsunamis and storms. (Vanessa Heyvaert, Sue Dawson, Max Engel)
- River terraces as archives of Quateranry landscape development. (Martin Stokes, Pedro Cunha, Poster only)

What’s up? The Friday links (60)2014-11-28 | in The Friday Links | 2 responses
A long year ago, the last Friday links were published, a section I always liked and waited for during food coma or processing times. Christoph managed to find intriguing bits and pieces from the digital world of geosciences week after week. And now it’s me (and maybe with a little help from my friends), trying not only to follow-up but also to keep you updated and to keep the geoblogosphere interconnected. What a task! I’m already loving it.

Session at AGU 2012 about “Controls on Seismicity and Fault Rupture in Intraplate Regions”2012-07-05 | in Meeting, paleoseismicity.org
Angela Landgraf (Uni Potsdam), Simon Kübler (LMU Munich), Seth Stein (NW University, IL) and myself would like to draw your attention to our session about “Controls on Seismicity and Fault Rupture in Low-Strain Intraplate Regions” (T010) at the 2012 AGU Fall Meeting 2012 (3 – 7 Dec). We are looking for a variety of contributions from intraplate regions that have experienced earthquakes during Quaternary times and hope for good and interesting discussions with you during the meeting. The submission deadline is quite soon, at 8 August 23:59 EDT/03:59 +1 GMT.
Looking forward to see many of you there – Angela, Simon, Seth and Esther more
