Fault2SHA Learning Series – Cosmogenic nuclides as a tool to constrain rates of deformation by Lucilla Benedetti

January 11 @ 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

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…

Fault2SHA Learning Series – Palaeoseismic studies in hazard modelling by Francesca Cinti

February 22 @ 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Palaeoseismic studies in hazard modelling Francesca Cinti Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia, Sezione di Roma 1, Monday 22nd February 2021, 15:00 Central European Time Among the geologic data, the trenching records of paleoearthquakes represent an important input for the development of seismic hazard evaluations and, specifically, for the characterization of fault rupture behavior in time. In this lecture I will introduce 1. the basic concept of paleoseismology, the evaluation methods and variability of fault parameters, 2. a paleoearthquake database as…

Fault2SHA Learning Series – Fault displacement hazard by Paolo Boncio

March 8 @ 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Fault displacement hazard - a geological perspective Paolo Boncio Associate Professor, DiSPUTer Department, Università degli Studi G. d'Annunzio Chieti e Pescara, Chieti, Italy Monday 8th March 2021, 15:00 Central European Time Fault displacement hazard (FDH) is a localized hazard due to rupture of the ground surface from slip along an earthquake fault (and fault creep). This might offset, tilt, warp and damage buildings and facilities sited across or in the vicinity of the fault trace. FDH is particularly relevant for…

Fault2SHA Learning Series – Coulomb Stress Transfer by Ross Stein

April 12 @ 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Earthquakes Converse by the Transfer of Stress Ross S. Stein Cofounder and CEO, Temblor, Inc., Adjunct Professor of Geophysics, Stanford University, Former Senior Scientist, U.S. Geological Survey Monday 12th April 2021 15:00 Central European Time I will argue that large earthquakes can promote and inhibit failure on nearby faults, and that the transfer of Coulomb stress plays a governing—but not exclusive—role in this interaction. Through a series of physical demonstrations and animations, I will use these concepts to explain the…

Fault2SHA Learning Series – False friends in SHA by Laura Peruzza

May 10 @ 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

False friends in seismic hazard assessment (SHA) Laura Peruzza OGS Istituto Nazionale di Oceanografia e di Geofisica Applicata, Trieste Italy Monday 10th May 2021 16:00 - 17:00 Central European Summer Time (16:00 Italian time, 15:00 UK) There are several terms, in probabilistic seismic hazard assessment, that have different and sometimes counterintuitive meaning depending the specialistic field you belong to. In this lecture I will present 1- a brief overview on the methods available to quantify the seismic hazard in a…
