Following the 2020-12-29 magnitude 6.4 earthquake in Croatia, a late breaking session was accepted by EGU. The session The Dec. 2020 earthquake sequence in Petrinja, Croatia, and its seismotectonic and geodynamic environments will be convened by Stéphane Baize, Sara Amoroso, Lucilla Benedetti, Petra Jamšek Rupnik, Branko Kordić, Snjezana Markušić, and Bruno Pace. The deadline for abstracts is 28 February, 2021. Abstracts need to be send to the conveners by email. You’ll find the email addresses on the session website.more

Our colleague Jessica Pilarczyk will chair an Interdisciplinary Tsunami Science Session at the AGU Fall Meeting:
Dear paleoseismicity.org members,
We invite you to submit an abstract to the session, “Interdisciplinary Tsunami Science” at the Fall 2018 American Geophysical Union Meeting, to be held in Washington DC 10-14 December. The session is a continuation of the interdisciplinary tsunami sessions that have been held the past two fall meetings. We hope that you can contribute with abstracts to this session. The session description is below.
The deadline to submit an abstract is 1 August 2018, 11:59 P.M. EDT/3:59 +1 GMT.

NH021: Interdisciplinary Tsunami Science
Session ID: 46945
Tsunamis are one of the most devastating natural disasters, with the potential for inflicting huge damage along wide stretches of coastal areas. Recent tsunami events have demonstrated that the tsunami risk has grown tremendously since the last ocean-wide tsunami of 1964, primarily due to the expansion of coastal development and the maritime communities. Tsunami science has become one of the most inter-disciplinary research areas. Social science, applied mathematics, engineering, and geology are as important to tsunami research as traditional seismology and oceanography. This session provides a broad forum for cross-disciplinary studies and invites contributions from all areas of tsunami science including: fundamental and basic research; forecast and warning procedures for current and future events; investigation of geologic records and hindcasting of past events; response, mitigation, and recovery strategies; tsunami observations; socio-economic impacts; and hazard and risk studies from tsunamis generated by earthquakes, landslides, volcanic eruptions, meteorological phenomena, and meteorite impacts.
Our colleague Jessica Pilarczyk send us the following message regarding an AGU session on Interdisciplinary Tsunami Science:
Dear paleoseismicity.org members,
We invite you to submit an abstract to the session, “Interdisciplinary Tsunami Science” at the Fall 2017 American Geophysical Union Meeting, to be held in New Orleans 11-15 December. The session description is below. The deadline to submit an abstract is 2 August 23:59 EST/04:59 +1 GMT.

Sarah Boulton and colleagues will convene an interesting session at the AGU Fall Meeting. They collect contributions on the development and application of geochronometres, techniques that most of us use in everyday life for dating landscape changes and fault activity. EP047: The development and application of chronometers in geomorphology.
Session DescriptionIsotopes and other quantitative tracers are widely used to quantify rates of geomorphic processes and to fingerprint sediment sources and sinks. However, these techniques, including short-lived fallout radionuclides, cosmogenic radionuclides, optically stimulated luminescence, and thermochronology, all have methodological assumptions that limit their usefulness in geomorphology. This session invites studies using geochemical methods to investigate the rates and progress of landscape change with a particular focus on geomorphic response to perturbations such as environmental change, anthropogenic impact, and tectonic drivers. We also welcome studies that consider new developments in geochronologic techniques or test the limitations and assumptions behind commonly employed methods.Primary Convener: Sarah J Boulton, Plymouth University, Plymouth, PL4, United KingdomConveners: Amanda C Henck Schmidt, Oberlin College, Oberlin, OH, United States, Paul R Bierman, University of Vermont, Burlington, VT, United States and Kevin P Norton, Victoria University of Wellington, Wellington, New Zealand

The following AGU session is of potential interest to the paleoseismology community:
Earthquake Rupture Processes, Confronting Field Observations and Models (25767)
In recent years, combined progresses in our understanding of earthquake mechanics and computation capabilities have allowed to develop numerical models that address earthquake mechanics at a variety of scales, from fault segmentation to co-seismic off-fault damage.
These theoretical progresses can potentially suggest new observations that can be tested by field or geodetic studies. In parallel, innovative technics in earthquake geology and active tectonics have allowed for a significant improvement in our capacity of detailed observation of earthquake ruptures. Hence, it is time to confront high-resolution observations with numerical and theoretical models to test these models and see in which direction observation should go. We welcome contribution testing earthquake mechanic models based on observational data (geodesy, field data…) as well as contribution suggesting new potential field observation, based on theoretical or numerical developments.Primary Convener: Yann Klinger, Institut de Physique du Globe de Paris, FranceConvener: Marion Thomas, University of Oxford, UK
2015 GSA Session “Estimating the Timing and Characteristics of Continental Earthquakes from Geologic Data”2015-07-22 | in Meeting
The 2015 GSA Annual Meeting will be held in early November in Baltimore and since the deadline is approaching (11 August) it is time to check paleoseismology sessions. One of the many interesting sessions will be chaired by our colleagues Mark Quigley and Tim Stahl: “T186 – Estimating the Timing and Characteristics of Continental Earthquakes from Geologic Data”. Tim told me that there will be “some great invited speakers lined up speaking on paleoliquefaction, lake varve deposits and San Andreas fault paleoseismology“. more

The EGU2014 will take place from 27 April – 2 May, 2014 in Vienna, Austria. The call for abstracts is open and submission deadline is 16 January, 2014. So it’s time to start thinking about which sessions would be interesting – not only for presenting own work, but also for listening to great talks. Here’s a list of sessions that a paleoseismologist could find interesting: more
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
