In case you need a good read for your summer holidays, here are the latest papers on paleoseismology and related fields. Today including a IAEA TecDoc about paleoseismology, an early paper on the Gorkha quake, coral paleoseismology, some tectonic geomorphology in Spain, clastic dykes, and tectonic uplift of an island in Chile. Enjoy!

This summer and fall will be trenching time, our Belgian, Dutch and Austrian colleagues are opening paleoseismological trenches. The DEM/image of the last post by Christoph shows already some morphological relevant faults in the Aachen area (recognized by the rectangular open-pit lignite mines) that are striking NW-SE. more
An interesting new project aims on a better understanding of ancient earthquakes in Europe. ArMedEa – Archaeology of the Medieval Earthquakes in Europe (1000-1550 AD) is dedicated to increase our knowledge of medieval seismic events. The 2-years project based at Durham University will focus on archaeological information on quakes, tsunamis and earthquake-induced mass movements. ArMedEa is run by Paolo Forlin (supervised by Chris Gerrard and Dave Petley). The project has just started and already has its own blog. more
