Dear colleagues,

We would like to draw your attention to the following session listed in the Tectonophysics

section at the upcoming 2020 AGU Fall meeting:

T001 - 100-year Anniversary of the Great 1920 Haiyuan Earthquake: What Did We Learn From Large Continental Earthquakes



Website: https://www.agu.org/Fall-Meeting/2020/Present/Abstracts



Deadline: July 29, 2020

Session Description:

The 1920 great Haiyuan earthquake is one of the largest and most deadly continental earthquakes in the world, resulting in more than 230,000 casualties. The earthquake ruptured on the Haiyuan fault, which is a major left-lateral strike-slip fault along the northeastern edge of the Tibetan plateau, and plays an active role in the eastward extrusion of Tibet. In memorial of the 100th anniversary of the Haiyuan earthquake, this session welcomes contributions on analysis of geophysical/geological records associated with this and other continental earthquakes and associated active faults. These include, but are not limited to: dynamic earthquake rupture inversions and simulations, paleoseismology, continental deformation, and geophysical and geodetic imaging of active fault structures. We hope to create an interdisciplinary forum toward better understanding of earthquakes in continent interior and foster discussion about new directions to be followed.
