Geonews of the Week


IPGP - Îlot Cuvier


Séminaires de Sismologie

Salle 310

Patrick Allard and Matthias Meschede


This is a weekly, one-hour session of information/reflection on seismic, tectonic and volcanic activity worldwide. It is based on a model already tested in other foreign universities including Berkeley.

It is made of three parts: 1) A summary of the seismic activity in the previous week (based on the information available on the web) 2) “Geonews Talk”: a more detailed discussion of a recent earthquake, volcanic crisis or any interesting geophysical event for which information is readily available. 3a) The presentation of a short article published in the recent peer-reviewed literature on seismogenesis, volcanism or tectonics.
3b) An introductory presentation on the ongoing research of the speaker.

This week's "Geonews Talk" is by Patrick Allard about the ongoing volcanic crisis at El Hierro island, Canaries. Then, Matthias Meschede (PhD student at the Seismology group) will talk about his research: "Antipodal focusing after a large meteorite impact".
