  • This was the virtual PATA short meeting 2020

    On 18 December we held a short virtual PATA meeting, since the in-person meeting to be held in Chile had to be postponed to 2021. The PATA Days (Paleoseismology, Active Tectonics, Archaeoseismology) are the main event of INQUA TERPRO‘s earthquake science community, led by the project TPPT (Terrestrial Processes Perturbed by Tectonics). Most of us are starving for joint field trips and personal contacts, but it was nice to at least see everyone online – more than 170 people attended the 1.5 hrs event. The five main topics were:

  • Announcement: PATA Days Webinar on 18 Dec, 2020

    The 2020 PATA Days in Chile, originally planned for November this year, had to be postponed to November 2021. Let’s keep the enthusiasm for the realization of this nice congress in the coastal Atacama Desert of northern Chile! On 18 December, 2020 there will be a webinar including lectures on paleoseismology and seismic hazard, as well as an introduction to recent advances in active tectonics along the major northern Chile seismic gap. In addition, the first short-abstract volume in digital version will be released.

  • PATA Days in Chile 2020: registration & short abstracts due 28 February!

    Dear colleagues,

    Please make sure to register for the 2020 PATA Days in Chile before 28 February here: https://www.patadayschile.cl

    You can also book your hotels here and submit the short abstracts. There’s only a limited number of places due to the remote venue in a wonderful resort hotel – first come, first served. The PATA Days (Paleoseismology, Active Tectonics, Archaeoseismology) is the largest int’l meeting for the paleoseismology community and supported by INQUA. In Chile, a lot of tsunami science will of course also happen.

  • PATA Days 2020 in Chile – new deadlines

    These are the updated deadlines for the upcoming PATA Days in Chile, November 2020:

    • Short abstract submission (300 words): 28 February, 2020
    • Extended abstract (four pages as usual): 30 March, 2020
    • Initial registration: 28 February, 2020
    • Final registration: 30 March, 2020

    The website with all the relevant information is here: https://www.patadayschile.cl/.

    Here’s the updated 1st circular with the new deadlines (PDF):

  • 1st circular: INQUA Int’l Summer School on Active Tectonics & Tectonic Geomorphology in Prague, 24-27 September 2019

    The INQUA Focus Group on Earthquake Geology and Seismic Hazards (EGSHaz) will run the International Summer School on Active Tectonics and Tectonic Geomorphology in Prague from 24-27 September, 2019. This event replaces the PATA Days this year and aims mainly at MSc./PhD students and Early Career Researchers. Please note that this is not a classical PATA Days event where new science will be shown and discussed. The summer school is organized by the Institute of Rock Structure and Mechanics, Czech Academy of Sciences and the Charles University in Prague, Faculty of Science. Please find a pdf of the first circular here.

     

  • PATA Days 2019 in Israel cancelled

    The 10th PATA Days, which were planned for September 2019 in Israel, have to be cancelled. The next regular PATA meeting will therefore be held in Chile 2020. This is the bad news. The good news is that there will be a student summer school organized by the IFG EGSHaz from 24-27 September, 2019, in Prague (Czech Republic). Petra Štěpančíková and her team are currently working on the schedule. The summer school will mainly address students and PhD students interested in earthquake geology, paleoseismology, and tectonic geomorphology. We will likely have two days of lectures & exercises and two days of field trips. More information will be available soon, so stay tuned.

    Please make sure to consider attending the INQUA Congress in Dublin (25-31 July, 2019). There will be three sessions organized by our IFG:

    • Earthquake Geology and Seismic Hazards: from earthquake mapping of historical and prehistoric earthquakes to paleoseismology (Ioannis Papanikolaou, Stéphane Baize, Christoph Grützner)
    • Paleoseismology of plate interiors under Pleistocene climate changes (Klaus Reicherter, Petra Štěpančíková, Małgorzata Pisarska-Jamroży)
    • Development of soft-sediment deformation structures (SSDS) and differences between non-seismic and seismic structures (Małgorzata
      (Gosia) Pisarska-Jamroży, A.J. Tom van Loon, Barbara Woronko, Andreas Börner)

    Also, this session could be of interest:

    • Subduction zone palaeoseismology (Emma Hocking, Ed Garrett, Jasper Moernaut)

    See you in Dublin and Prague!

  • New INQUA website and TERPRO online membership form

    INQUA has a wonderful new website: https://inqua.org/. Most importantly, it now has a form to register with the TERPRO commission (becoming a member = subscribing to the mailing list): https://inqua.org/commissions/terpro/join. Becoming a member doesn’t lead to any obligations, but comes with two advantages:
    1) You will be informed about TERPRO news every now and then;
    2) You’ll have the right to vote for the new TERPRO leadership!

    There are a couple of changes ahead of us, let’s make sure the earthquake community makes itself heard. During the past years, INQUA-TERPRO has always supported our PATA Days meetings by sponsoring travel grants for
    early career researchers and researchers from developing countries. You joining TERPRO will help to continue that amazing work and to support PATA Days, ECRs & DCRs in the future. So please register!

    Thanks and see you in Thessaloniki: https://www.patadays2018.org/
