This was the virtual PATA short meeting 2020

Posted by in TERPRO News on

On 18 December we held a short virtual PATA meeting, since the in-person meeting to be held in Chile had to be postponed to 2021. The PATA Days (Paleoseismology, Active Tectonics, Archaeoseismology) are the main event of INQUA TERPRO's earthquake science community, led by the project TPPT (Terrestrial Processes Perturbed by Tectonics). More than 170 people attended the 1.5 hrs event. The five main topics were:
  1. Update on INQUA TERPRO
  2. Presentation of the 2020 short abstracts
  3. An appetizer on the earthquake geology of Chile
  4. Info on PATA 2022 in France and PATA 2023 in China
  5. An invited lecture by Tom Rockwell on "Advancements in paleoseismology and seismic hazard from fault architecture, damage zones and earthquake directivity along crustal faults".
