Dear Collegues,
we would like to invite you to submit an abstract to our session "Integrated multidisciplinary approaches applied to seismotectonic studies" (TS3.2) at the EGU 2024 General Assembly in Vienna, Austria (April 14 – 19 2024). The overall aim is to share and discuss the advances on the integrated application of different methodologies and techniques applied on seismotectonic studies. Please find the link to the session and the text in the following for more details.

We would like to encourage Early Career Scientists (ECS), PhD and MSc students to apply, also considering the possibility to receive a support grant (ECSTS) by submitting your abstract by 1 December 2023, 13:00 CET.

Session Description:

In the last decades, advancements in technology have significantly help structural geology studies on seismic areas. Major improvements include areas such as Geophysics (e.g., seismic reflection, seismology), Laboratory and Field structural geology (e.g., rock mechanics, rare earth elements analysis, paleoseismology), Remote Sensing (e.g., SAR and related techniques, LiDAR and photogrammetry), IT systems (e.g., GIS, Databases, Artificial Intelligence, Big Data) and Modelling (e.g., analogue and numerical modelling, inversions). The integration of such disciplines with structural geology studies, is fundamental as they are intricately interconnected. This approach is fundamental when the ultimate goal is the building of comprehensive, multiscale structural models that encompass syn- and post-earthquake deformation, ranging from individual outcrop scale to regional models, and spanning from the surface faulting effects to the base of the seismogenic layer.
The most common questions regarding structural geological studies applied to seismotectonics pertain to aspects such as defining fault dimensions, displacements and segmentation, slip rates and lithologies hosting the seismicity. Within this framework, each technique yields innovative but specific results aimed at addressing these inquiries. However, the different data and results are rarely integrated to obtain a more all-encompassing comprehension of earthquake deformation and hazard. In order to promote a multiscale understanding of earthquake dynamics, mechanics and kinematics, a multidisciplinary approach is needed.
We highly encourage contributions focused on structural geological studies integrated with various technologies and techniques (not limited to the above mentioned) in different seismotectonic settings worldwide. The aims of this session are to group scientific contributions on the most advanced techniques, applications and discoveries in the field of the seismotectonics, and to increase the awareness of the seismotectonic community about the different available technologies to be applied, promoting data integration and further collaborations.

We look forward to seeing you all in Vienna.
