Dear Colleagues,

For those of you who have not yet to submit an AOGS abstract (2021 AOGS meeting link:, please consider our session "IG15: Earthquakes Related Cascading Hazards Over Multiple Timescales" which aims to investigate different triggering mechanisms between earthquakes and other natural hazards through different observations, numerical modeling and etc.

The deadline to submit an abstract is Tuesday, 23 February, 2021.

Session Title:

IG15. Earthquakes Related Cascading Hazards Over Multiple Timescales

Invited Speaker:

Dr. Ya-Ju Hsu, Academia Sinica, Taiwan


Dr. Shanshan Li (Florida International University, USA), shli<at>

Dr. Zhigang Peng (Georgia Tech, USA), zpeng<at>

Dr. Shimon Wdowinski (Florida International University, USA), swdowins<at>

Dr. Bruce H Shyu (National Taiwan University), jbhs<at>

Dr. Philippe Steer (University of Rennes 1, France), philippe.steer<at>

Session Description:

Earthquakes are known to trigger other natural hazards, such as other earthquakes, landslides, avalanche, tsunami, fire, and volcanic eruptions. In the past decades, scientists also found that earthquakes can be triggered by a variety of natural processes, including tropical cyclones, heavy rainfall, flooding and other cyclic forces such as tides, annual variations in atmospheric pressures and ground waters. Thus, earthquakes or other natural hazards need to be studied together to better understanding their cascading behaviors. Identifying and understanding the physical mechanisms, frequencies, time delays, and control factors of different earthquake-related triggering or induced relationships remains challenging. In this session, we welcome contributions that address, quantify, compare and model triggered or induced relationships among earthquakes, and between earthquakes and other natural hazards, spanning over a variety of timescales ranging from seconds to years in different tectonic regions. We particularly welcome contributions based on field evidences corroborated by statistical, mechanical or geophysical analysis and from numerical or experimental modeling. We aim to provide a platform to discuss potential earthquake-related triggering or induced mechanisms and explore the broad impacts of earthquakes and other natural hazards. We hope this session can offer new insights for estimating the likelihood of future damaging earthquakes and other natural hazards and identifying potential multi-hazard disasters.

Meeting Dates: 01 – 06 August 2021
