Dear Colleague,

I hope you and your loved ones are safe in these trying times due to the COVID
pandemic spreading. Under these circumstances, on the basis of the
experiences from *EGU2020: Sharing Geoscience Online, *for 2021, EGU will
be hosting *vEGU21: Gather Online (#vEGU21)*, a fully virtual meeting that
will be held in place of the General Assembly in Vienna.

More information can be found at:


On behalf of all the Conveners, I cordially invite you to submit an
abstract at this session for *vEGU21*:

NH 4.1 *Earthquake-induced hazards: ground motion amplification and ground

Convener:Giovanni Forte*ECS *Co-conveners:Céline Bourdeau, Paolo Frattini,
Hans-Balder Havenith, Janneke van Ginkel*ECS*


The *abstract submission deadline *is *13 January 2021, 13:00 CET*.


*The main concern of the occurrence of an earthquake is the ground shaking,
although past events worldwide demonstrated that damage and death toll
depends on both the strong ground motion and the ground effects. The
variability of earthquake ground motion is caused by local geological
conditions beneath a given site, due to the stratigraphic or topographic
setting that can give rise to amplification and resonances.
Earthquake-induced ground effects are mainly landslides, soil liquefaction,
and ground subsidence. They can affect an area with damages related to the
full collapse or loss in functionality of facilities, roads, pipelines, and
other lifelines. The purpose of this session is to provide a forum for
discussion among researchers and other professionals who study seismic
amplification of the ground motion and the related hazards and to encourage
multidisciplinary research in these fields. Topics of interest include the
following: - Subsoil investigation and characterization for Seismic
Microzonation mapping; - Evaluation of seismic site response (1D-2D-3D) -
Case histories of earthquake-triggered landslides analyzed at either local
or regional scale - Slope stability analyses and runout modeling of
seismically/volcanically-induced landslides; - Studies on Soil liquefaction
and earthquake-induced subsidence*

*A focused special issue in an EGU-journal will be edited based on the
contributions of this session.*

We would also appreciate it if you could forward this to your team members
and colleagues who may also be interested in the topic.

Thank you for your consideration and please contact us if you have any
questions or suggestions.

Best Regards
