Corresponding e-mail: 
Earthquakes, and the related tsunamis, are one of the most damaging manifestations of the motion of tectonic plates deforming the Earth's crust. Mitigation of the seismic and tsunami risk for human populations and cultures relies upon our ability to correctly understand the level of hazard characterizing a region. Hence, a correct evaluation of the seismic and tsunami hazard requires the knowledge of the geometry of active faults, the physical conditions and the processes underlying seismo- and tsunamigenesis. In the last 20 years, a large amount of geophysical data has been collected during moderate-to-large earthquakes and tsunamis. This data together with results from laboratory experiments, analysis of paleoseismological data and historical records, geological field mapping and structural analysis of faults, as well as ocean and continental scientific drilling have shown the importance of the multidisciplinary approach to study the complexity of the seismic rupture propagation, and their link with the tsunamigenesis. In this session, we invite multidisciplinary contributions at the frontiers between Geology, Seismology, Geodesy, Rock Mechanics, Tectonics and their applications, to foster a comprehensive understanding of the faulting processes and of the key parameters controlling the physics of earthquakes and tsunamis, with a particular focus on the Euro-Mediterranean area. Studies based on ocean and continental scientific drilling are also welcomed.
