New papers on paleoseismology, active tectonics, and archaeoseismology (May 2023)
New special issue – Earthquake Geology and Seismic Hazards: From Earthquake Mapping of Historical and Prehistoric Earthquakes to Paleoseismology2023-04-16 | in Paper
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:

New papers on paleoseismology, active tectonics, and archaeoseismology (April 2023)2023-04-03 | in Paper
This is the longest list of papers we had since ages. We start with a brand new review article on recent developments in onshore paleoseismology by Jim McCalpin et al. Also in the list are plenty of papers on classical paleoseismology and earthquake geology, a few cool tsunami studies, some fault physics, SHA, and new methods. Enjoy reading!more
New paper on Archaeoseismological Evidence of Seismic Damage at Medina Azahara (Córdoba, Spain) from the Early 11th Century by Rodríguez Pascua et al.2023-02-17 | in Paper
The UNESCO World Heritage site “Caliphal City of Medina Azahara” in southern Spain was built in the 10th Century by the first Caliph of al-Andalus, Abd al-Rahman III. The destruction and consequent abandonment of the city were thought to result from a civil war between 1009/10 AD. In a new paper, Rodríguez Pascua et al. investigate the role of an earthquake in the sudden abandonment and ruin of the city. They identified eleven types of Earthquake Archaeological Effects (EAEs), including dropped key stones in arches, tilted walls, conjugated fractures in brick-made walls, conjugated fractures and folds in regular pavements, and dipping broken corners in columns. More than 150 structural measurements imply mean ground motion direction of N140°–160° E. This indicates oriented damage to the buildings. From recent events such as the Lorca Earthquake we know that this pattern can be caused by earthquakes. The authors conclude that probably two strong earthquakes with intensities ≥VIII MSK/EMS occurred in the 11th and 12th centuries AD.more
