Welcome to the ESC website

 


 

Forthcoming events: 

 


 

The 37th General Assembly of the ESC will be held in Corfu, Greece from 6 to 11 September 2020. Save the date!
 


The 2019 Annual Meeting of the Seismological Society of America will be held in Seattle, Washington on 23-26 April.

The joint SSA-ESC session is titled Explore the Fault2SHA paradigms across the Ponds

After the formalization of a Fault2SHA Working Group inside the European Seismological Commission (2016), some initiatives organized by the WG Executive Committee in the “Old World” (http://fault2sha.net/what/), and a fruitful session at SSA2018, for presenting new data sets and the latest integration of fault sources in SHA models in Latin Americas, this session aims at exploring differences and similarities in treating fault data in seismic hazard assessment across the Ponds (the Oceans). Descriptions of earthquake sources coming from field observations and from modelling, discussions on how to handle uncertainties in source representation for Seismic Hazard Assessment (i.e. probability of multi-fault ruptures), contributions to the identification of 3D, geometrically complex fault systems, and their incorporation in either physics-based or probabilistic seismic hazard results are welcome.  

 

Conveners:

Laura Peruzza (OGS, Italy), Ned Field (USGS, USA), Richard Styron (GEM, USA), Alessandro Valentini (UNICH, Italy)

 

 Abstract submission will start on 1 December.

From the ESC Working Groups:

Contribute to the Portal of the ESC WG on Communication here

Visit the website of the FAULT2SHA Working Group and find out forthcoming activities! The WG promotes a new initiative, open to all researchers interested in contributing to discussions on topics that could improve the assessment of seismic hazard.

The Working Group on Induced Seismicity organised as its second activity a special session 'Induced Seismicity - The European Perspective' at the annual meeting of the SSA in April 2017.
