6th Fault2SHA Workshop

Chieti, Abruzzo, Italy

We are ready for the 6th Workshop of the Fault2SHA ESC Working Group. It will be held in Chieti on January 19-20, 2023. It is the first in-person meeting after years; it follows the kickoff meeting of the new Horizon Europe MSCA-DN project TREAD, leaded by the University of Chieti-Pescara. TREAD will open 11 phD positions in Europe soon.

About 45 experienced and early career researchers are expected; key-note lectures will be recorded for the community. Enjoy the PRE-WORKSHOP PROCEEDINGS, and the mountains’ view!

We wish you

A year of Peace, Health, and Joy.

Check our job offers, and follow the Fault2SHA events.

JAMmin’

Among the New Year’s resolution for 2022 there was the proposal to strenghten the Fault2SHA Community with a new initiative, called Jammin’ Series.

If you want to share your brand-new research, project, results or doubts, within the Fault2SHA community, read this page, and contact a Ex-Com member.

Top 5 New Year’s resolutions for 2022

January is the month for New Year’s resolutions.

The Fault2SHA Ex-Com, during its first meeting of 2022, selected this TOP 5 ones.

If you like them, pleas put a like on this post, and stay tuned.

If you do not like them, please, let us know, and suggest your ones!

  1. Organize new Fault2SHA Workshops (LIVE)
  2. Establish other Laboratories
  3. Continue the Learning Series
  4. Strenghten the communities (with a new Jammin’ Series)
  5. Update the website (and social channel too)

The Fault2SHA Ex-Com would like to

  • welcome José Antonio Álvarez Gómez as a new member. His broad interests in many of the topics discussed within Fault2SHA will certainly enhance the link between fault data provider and fault data modelers.
  • thank Julián García-Mayordomo who has decided to leave the Ex-Com. Julian has been an active member of the Fault2sha Ex-Com since the creation of the Working Group. He will remain a very active member of the working group, in particular with our Colombian collegues. We wish him all the best for the future.

Late-Breaking session at vEGU2021

Please, consider to submit your contributions to the brand-new session:

The Dec. 2020 earthquake sequence in Petrinja, Croatia, and its seismotectonic and geodynamic environments 

https://meetingorganizer.copernicus.org/EGU21/session/41372

The conveners ask the interested presenters to contact them ASAP with  potential title and author list. Abstracts to be sent before the Feb 28th. The EGU organizing committee will then register them on the EGU website.

Drop, cover and hold

It is probably the most commonly used safety instruction during an earthquake. After this difficult year, we propose you an alternative view: DROP on your favourite sofa, COVER your legs with a warm blanket, and HOLD, till the Rt Covid-19 is well below 0.8, in your country.

Thanks to the participants to the 5th Workshop, the Fault2SHA community is growing, and the program of activities for the new year is growing as well. Stay tuned, stay safe…

“All Hands on deck” Workshop

Last day of the 5th Fault2SHA Workshop, last chance in 2020 to join Fault2SHA members and supporters at a Fault2SHA event.

Wednesday 2nd December 14:30 – 16:30 (CET): Open Discussion – What next for Fault2SHA: New laboratories and research themes

The two hours of discussion will address the following topics, which emerged during the previous two days of the Workshop:

  1. Paleoseismology: how to handle data and identify interpretations
  2. Faults with no slip-rate data: how to handle them
  3. New Fault2SHA Labs: proposals

Your participation is encouraged – ask questions and join the discussion.

For registered users only (link in the event).

5th Workshop

Fault More Learn Seismic Hazard SHA Model Research

The first two days of the 5th Fault2SHA Workshop have gone, with an exciting “long-lasting” participation (on average we had 90 connected via zoom for the whole time and 25 following the Youtube streaming – Fault2SHA 5th Workshop Playlist). We thank all the speakers and other participants; it is an impressive message of the needs of learning, sharing and growing of our communities. We remind you that there will be other possibilities, this difficult year, to get in touch with the WG Fault2SHA members and activities.

Day 3 of the workshop taking place at 14:30 (European Central Time) on Wednesday 2nd December will be an open discussion centred around the following themes:

(1) Palaeoseismic data- what information is needed and how should it be displayed to be easily and appropriately incorporated into seismic hazard models? How can we separate data from interpretation? 
(2) How to incorporate faults in seismic hazard assessment where we have low slip-rates and/or are lacking slip-rate data in the context of individual faults and whole regions.
(3) Forming a new Fault2SHA lab – from data to models collaborating to incorporate fault data in seismic hazard assessment

We look forward to welcoming those of you who are joining us for the discussion then.
