European Seismological Commission

The ESC structure

The ESC is a commission of the International Association of Seismology and Physics of the Earth's Interior (IASPEI), which is associated to the International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics (IUGG). Its aim is to promote seismological studies and projects in Europe, countries bordering the Mediterranean and immediate neighbors; a region extending from the Mid-Atlantic Ridge to the Urals and the Arctic ocean to northern Africa. The ESC General Assemblies are held every other year at different locations.

The current ESC structure, created in Geneva in September 2006, is made up of, the ESC Council (its ruling body), the Executive Committee, Resolution and Nominating committees, and Working Groups which have defined tasks and are set up with the purpose of studying particular scientific problems. The ESC is governed according to bylaws, which were amended and adopted in Geneva in 2006 and modified in Istanbul in 2014.
