In the wake of the devasting 6th of February 2023 earthquake that hit a very wide region along the Turkey/Syria border, the members of the European Seismological Commission Fault2sha Working group wish to express their support to the families of the victims and all those doing their utmost today to continue to rescue and help the affected population. In silence, in the backstage, we continue our activities to improve knowledge and create synergies in the hope that tomorrow we shall never again witness similar catastrophes.
To appreciate some of our actions, we encourage you to visit the two new thematic labs created following the 6th Fault2SHA Workshop in Chieti:
- Fault2SHA Post-earthquake Reconnaissance Lab; many new Fault2sha members have joined this laboratory, motivated by the occurrence of the recent earthquake in Turkey. Each one ready to help in presence or remotely.
- Fault2SHA Fault Displacement Hazard Lab; a laboratory to compare and test observations and modelling issues on this hot topic.
We also encourage you to visit our JOB OFFERS announcing the call for 11 PhD positions, in the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Doctoral Network of the Project TREAD. The selection will be carried out in various European institutions. We hope young people from the devastated areas can participate to the selection too, to build together a new generation of Fault2SHA scientists.
