The award recognises Yann Klinger’s research into understanding major continental earthquakes through the link between rupture, geometry, segmentation, on- and off-fault deformation distribution and fault structure.
The medal also pays tribute to all the innovative developments and applications in which he has participated in the processing of very high-resolution satellite images, essentially around image correlation.
Lastly, his work on the study of past earthquakes through the development of new approaches such as spatial palaeoseismology and 3D trench palaeoseismology is rewarded.
« I am very honoured to receive this medal from the Tectonics and Structural Geology section of the EGU, which rewards the work I have been able to carry out in recent years, at the frontier between tectonics and seismology. This work would not have been possible without the excellent colleagues and students with whom I have been lucky enough to collaborate, so this award is clearly also theirs. »
