After the 1st Iberfault meeting in 2010, the 2nd meeting will take place in Lorca, Spain from 22-24 October, 2014. Any research on active tectonics and paleoseismology in Iberia is welcome, a special focus will be set on the QUAFI database. The conference will be organized by José Martinez Díaz (UCM), Eulàlia Masana (UB) and Miguel A. Rodríguez (IGME). Lorca became famous in 2011 when a shallow MW5.1 earthquake killed 9 people and caused severe damages in the city (there is an ongoing discussion whether or not groundwater lowering for irrigation during the last decades has caused, triggered, or influenced the quake).
The meeting will consist of four main parts:
- Scientific sessions;
- Planned invited talks;
- Expert panel discussions; and
- Field trips during and after the meeting.
One field trip is supposed to take place during the meeting, another one is scheduled for the two days following the meeting.
- Quaternary active faults in the continental crust.
- Quaternary active faults in offshore areas.
- Archaeoseismology and active faults.
- Advanced techniques in the seismic characterization of active faults.
- The implementation of paleoseismic data into seismic hazard and risk analysis.
Pre-inscription is demanded before 31 January, 2014.
