Dear colleagues,

We would like to invite you to submit abstracts to the session on ‘Tectonics, Seismology and Geological Hazards’ of the GeoCongress 2023 to be held in Stellenbosch, South Africa.

The GeoCongress 2023 will be held at the Stellenbosch University campus on 11 – 13 January 2023 and will cover a broad spectrum of geoscience topics. Domestic and international researchers are welcome.

Abstract deadline for poster and oral presentations is 30 September 2022. With accepted abstracts notified on 31 October 2022.

Session Synopsis [Tectonics, Seismology and Geological Hazards]

This general session is intended for researchers working broadly on neotectonic deformation, seismology and geological hazards. Studies which are based in Africa, or which present methodologies which could be productively applied to African case studies, are particularly encouraged. Suggested research areas include studies of earthquakes through seismology and satellite radar interferometry, seismic interferometry applications, seismic imaging, experimental studies on the physical properties of fault rocks, geological constraints on the evolution of fault systems and the processes controlling brittle deformation, fault mapping through remote sensing, geophysical data or field work, seismic hazard and risk analyses. Contributions from the fields of earthquake engineering and mining seismicity are welcome, as are contributions related to geological hazards more generally (including landsliding).
