The official website has all the important news concerning logistics etc.: https://patadays-2022.sciencesconf.org/

    See you all in Southern France!

  • New papers on paleoseismology, active tectonics, and archaeoseismology (Sep 2022)

    This is the latest list of papers on paleoseismology and related fields. This time we have a lot of new studies on Eastern and Central Asia – very interesting reads! Enjoy reading and let me know if I have missed something.

  • New papers on paleoseismology, active tectonics, and archaeoseismology (Aug 2022)

    Today we have a number of articles on fault physics and some papers that use novel or unconventional ways to address large earthquakes and their proxies. Enjoy reading!

  • New papers on paleoseismology, active tectonics, and archaeoseismology (July 2022)

    This time I found a lot of studies on tsunamis, including a whole book on tsunamis that affected the Iberian Peninsula. Then there’s classical paleoseismology of course and tectonic geomorphology, but also some discussion on science communication and news about earthquakes in the European Alps. Enjoy reading!

  • Trenching season is ongoing!

    Following an un-systematic post-dinner doomscrolling I’m happy to declare May 2022 as the trenchiest month ever. Here’s some exhibits:

    Safety first; if cozy and comfy it’s better.

    The award goes to Stéphane Baize (@Stef_EQ_Geology) and their trenches along the Cévennes fault: look at the details in the photo… like “paleo” engraved in the wooden frame to prevent collapse of the trench wall. And what about the tent? 10/10 professional style.

    Sorry if I missed someone, I wish you all a safe and fruitful field season!

  • New papers on paleoseismology, active tectonics, and archaeoseismology (May 2022)

    Our paper list is full of classic paleoseismic trenching studies from all over the world – fascinating to see how quickly the number of trenches is rising. We also have papers on tools & methodology, and on earthquake proxies that open new possibilities to study past large events. Don’t miss Ferrario et al. who compiled 15 years of research on earthquake environmental effects!
