KAUST Workshop

A workshop titled

Advancing Seismic Hazard Assessment: Integrating geological and seismological observations into physics-based rupture simulations

will be held in Saudi Arabia,  November 26-28, 2018.

Key lectures on:

  • the promises and challenges of earthquake geology field observations for Seismic Hazard Assessment (SHA)
  • the dynamic and multi-cycle earthquake rupture simulation for estimating complex-geometry rupture probabilities
  • the inclusion of physics-based simulations into hazard calculation

will be given by an international team of experts. See for further details


About 40 participants are allowed. Deadline for submitting a registration form is August 30th; acceptance will be communicated on Sept, 20th.

This event is organised by the Computational Earthquake Seismology (CES) group at KAUST (https://ces.kaust.edu.sa) and the Fault2SHA Working Group of the European Seismological Commission, with financial support from King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST), Office of Sponsored Research (OSR).

Hands-on session at ESC 2018?

We are planning a short hands-on presentation of some tools that help to characterize seismicity rates of fault systems.
Up to now, the authors of two tools (FISH and SHERIF) gave their availability for a 30-minute long presentation of the potentialities and limits of their software, with examples of real cases. Other tools are welcome, provided that they are “FAULT2SHA” oriented, they have been described in a publication, and are available as open source software.

Please, let us know if you are interested in this initiative,  by filling this form.
