Fault2SHA Learning Series

Cosmogenic nuclides as a tool to constrain rates of deformation

Lucilla Benedetti, CEREGE-CNRS, Aix en Provence, France

11th January 2021 15:00 Central European Time

The use of cosmogenic nuclides has revolutionized the quantification of fault motion by filling a critical gap between short-term geodetically recorded slip-rates and geological-long term- slip rates. In this lecture I will present 1-the important aspects to be understood when dealing with cosmogenic nuclides from sampling strategy to getting exposure ages, 2-several applications such as the use of depth profiles to date the emplacement of morphological surfaces, fault scarp dating to unravel past seismic events, relief building and denudation rates, and a novel application on triangular facet to assess normal fault slip-rates.

Fault2SHA Learning Series

We are excited to announce the launch of the Fault2SHA Learning Series.

Starting in January 2021, at 15:00 (Central European Time) on the second Monday of each month, we will be hosting the Fault2SHA Learning Series.

The purpose of this series is to facilitate collaborations across different disciplines through assisting learning. This will be achieved by sessions providing a lecture comprising an overview of a selected topic relating to utilising fault data in seismic hazard assessments or a hands-on exercise on relevant open-access tools.


The sessions will be done via zoom, with the session recorded for youtube (when the lecturer or convenor gives permission).

We will be addressing topics requested in the registration forms for the Fault2SHA 5th Workshop and further topics identified in the future.

The first three lectures will be on the following subjects:

Monday 11th January: Cosmogenics by Lucilla Benedetti

Monday 8th February: Palaeoseismic studies in hazard modelling by Francesca Cinti

Monday 8th March: Fault displacement hazard – a geological perspective by Paolo Boncio

We thank the speakers in advance for their talks.
