Topics: SSA Meetings
Dear Colleagues,

Please consider submitting an abstract to session "Present-day Plate Boundary Deformation and Seismic Hazard in the Caribbean” at the Seismology of the Americas meeting (joint SSA / LACSC meeting, 14-17 May 2018, Miami). The session aims at bringing together geoscientists with an interest in (and results on) seismic hazard characterization and active plate boundary deformation in the Caribbean through seismology, paleoseismology, geodesy, tectonics, geodynamics or any other relevant discipline.

Submission deadline is January 24, coming up soon!

Please see: https://seismology2018.org/

Regards,
E. Calais, S. Symithe, O’Leary Gonzales Matos, V. Clouard.


======

Present-day Plate Boundary Deformation and Seismic Hazard in the Caribbean Seismic hazard is an integral part of the Caribbean. Earthquakes can be particularly devastating to countries of the region that have seen a significant rise in population density often with a concentration in coastal areas, and substandard building practices. A number of research and observation programs are however underway with the goal of better understanding seismic hazard and the physical processes that control the occurrence of earthquakes in the Caribbean, with the potential to inform decisions and contribute to capacity building. This session aims at bringing together geoscientists with an interest in seismic hazard characterization and active plate boundary deformation in the Caribbean through seismology, paleoseismology, geodesy, tectonics, geodynamics or any other relevant discipline.
