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:
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.
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!
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!
Organize new Fault2SHA Workshops (LIVE)
Establish other Laboratories
Continue the Learning Series
Strenghten the communities (with a new Jammin’ Series)
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.
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.
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…
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.
