IAEA webinar on probabilistic fault displacement hazard

The IAEA (International Atomic Energy Agency) will organize a webinar on May 30, dealing with recent advances in probabilistic fault displacement hazard assessment for nuclear installations in light of geological reconnaissance findings.

The webinar will provide an overview of the contribution of collected field evidence for principal and distributed ruptures; present the geological reconnaissance survey findings for the 6 February 2023, Turkiye earthquake sequence; provide information on IAEA activities regarding PFDHA including results of a benchmarking study.

Thematic Lab on Fault Displacement Hazard – kick-off meeting

We are pleased to announce a kick-off meeting of the Thematic Lab on Fault Displacement Hazard, to be held on Wed. 14th June 2023; 17:00 – 18:30 CET (15-16:30 UTC; 12-13:30 ART; 8-9:30 PST) 

This first meeting will: 

  1.  Introduce the aims of the Lab;
  2.  Give the opportunity to all the participants to introduce themselves, share thoughts and expectations, share ideas of potential common interest – if you have an idea that needs to be explained with a figure, feel free to prepare one slide;
  3. Planning future actions: all the ideas from the community are welcome! For the moment, we think short talk series can be a good way to start interactions for possible collaborations, e.g., 2 talks per meeting on stimulating topics, with large space for discussion. We are planning to have the first of the talk series in September 2023.

If you have a topic, or results from your research or experiences that can help the discussion and interactions, please propose your talk at the meeting.

If you know a colleague working on topics of potential interest for FDH, who does not know about the Lab, please invite her/him to join the Lab, or simply invite her/him to have a talk during a future meeting. 

Please, confirm your attendance to the kick-off meeting by sending an e-mail to Francesca (francesca.ferrario@uninsubria.it), so we will share with you the link to attend the meeting. 

Kind Regards,
