Dear Colleagues,

IUGG will be meeting next year in Berlin, Germany (July 11-20, 2023)
https://www.iugg2023berlin.org/.**

IASPEI regularly presents a symposium on recent large damaging
earthquakes at each Assembly. The symposium this year will include
contributions on the devastating February 2023 sequence in Turkey.

*The regular deadline for abstracts is (14 February 2023), but due to
the recent events, the deadline for this symposium is extended to Feb.
28, 2023.*

Thus, we would like to invite you to consider submitting an abstract to
the following IASPEI Symposium:


S12 Recent Devastating Earthquakes Including the Feb. 6, 2023 Turkey
Sequence

/*Convener(s):*Kenji Satake (Japan)/
/*Co-Convener(s):*Thorne Lay (USA) Dmitry Storchak (UK) Li Li (China)/

*Description*

Since the last IUGG General Assembly in July 2019, large, damaging
earthquakes continue to strike globally, producing loss of life and
destruction in many regions around the world. About 34 earthquakes with
Mw ≥ 7 (NEIC/GCMT) have occurred globally as of August 30, 2022. Three
great Mw~8+ earthquakes (GCMT) occurred in 2021: Kermadec Islands (March
4, Mw 8.1), Alaska (July 29, Mw 8.2), and South Sandwich Islands (August
12, Mw 8.3), with 16 more earthquakes in the world of Mw ≥ 7 that year.
In terms of earthquake damage, the Haiti earthquake on August 14, 2021
(Mw 7.2) caused more than 2,000 casualties and the Afghanistan
earthquake on June 22, 2022 (Mw 6.0) caused more than 1,000 casualties.
Earthquake science is essential for revealing the nature of earthquake
generation and for extracting lessons from these events to help society
reduce the impacts of future events. Seismologists, Geodesists,
Geologists and Tsunami experts have been cooperating to characterize the
full earthquake cycle and to image the rupture process of earthquakes
with steadily improving resolution. This session welcomes reports on all
studies of recent large and/or devastating earthquakes with
geodetic/seismological/tsunami techniques, including investigations of
source process, slip distribution, damage, pre/co/post-seismic
deformation, geological/geophysical structure around the source faults,
tectonic implications, and other associated phenomena.
