Information - TS3.3/NH4.4 Earthquake Geology (co-organized by NH)
Earthquake is a complex natural phenomenon that can (and must) be faced from many view points. Earthquake Geology that includes many different disciplines certainly represents a crucial methodological approach for seismic hazard assessment analyses. Indeed, in contrast to seismology, geological disciplines have the possibility to investigate a much wider time window and especially to observe the cumulative effects of past earthquakes. Indeed, linear and areal morphogenic earthquakes leave on the surface permanent features that geologists can observe and measure even after many years. For example, crucial information can be collected from regions without instrumental and historical seismicity but that generated (and can generate in the future) destructive events. Geological approaches to investigate past earthquake are also fundamental to infer the maximum expected magnitude, the return period, the slip-rate and other seismotectonic parameters. In this session, research papers mainly based on morphotectonic and palaeoseismological investigations as well as structural geology and remote sensing analyses are invited to contribute in improving our knowledge on seismically active regions worlwide. Papers dealing with new methodological approaches especially if multidisciplinary are welcome. We hope to bring together a broad range of expertise in order to discuss on the many different aspects of Earthquake Geology.
