The kickoff meeting goes online. 14-16 April 2021. SAVE THE DATE!

Notwithstanding the impact of the COVID outbreak, that changed all our lives, TERPRO’s EDITH Project (From Earthquake DeformatIon To SHA) is moving ahead and we can report some important NEWS.
We decided to go online with the kickoff meeting, that was unfortunately postponed by almost one year. The meeting will be held in the days of 14-16 April 2021 via a videocall platform (probably ZOOM).
We have planned the kickoff meeting as a discussion roundtable, with several keynote lectures, by invited speakers, and discussion rooms organized per field of expertise.

Our invited speakers, listed by field of expertise are:
GEODESY: Sabrina Metzger (Postdam Univerisity); Yariv Hamiel (Geological Survey of Israel)
PALEOSEISMOLOGY: James McCalpin (GeoHaz Consulting); Tamarah King (Oxford University)
ARCHEOSEISMOLOGY: Julian Lozos (CSU Northridge); Paolo Forlin (Durham University)
TECTONIC GEOMORPHOLOGY: Joanna Faure Walker (UCL Institute for Risk and Disaster Reduction); Ramon Arrowsmith (Arizona State University).

In the next weeks we’ll have some details on the title of the invited lectures. For the moment, please save the date!

EDITH kickoff meeting

We have received final confirmation from the INQUA commission that EDITH will be funded and we are excited to have the opportunity to bring together a group of like-minded scientists to tackle some of the big questions in earthquake science.
For the next three years, we will have annual meetings, as well as other activities, to bring together a range of scientists, across disciplines, career stages and countries.
For our first kick-off meeting, we want to take an interactive approach and provide plenty of opportunities for informal interactions and discussions. We are planning a kick-off meeting in the middle of April 2021 . Given the current coronavirus situation, we still do not know the location but it will be probably held in Europe; more details will come as the current situation evolves.
