Carissimi Soci Società Associate,

su indicazione del Dott. Francesco Pavano (Università di Napoli), vi segnaliamo la Call for Abstracts della sessione "Using geomorphic and sedimentary archives to characterize fault systems kinematics, evolution and paleoseismicity​​​​" organizzata nell'ambito dell'EGU General Assembly 2024 (Austria & Online | 14–19 Aprile 2024).

Cordiali saluti,

Dear colleagues,

We would like to invite you to submit an abstract to our session "TS4.4 Using geomorphic and sedimentary archives to characterize fault systems kinematics, evolution and paleoseismicity" (, at the upcoming EGU General Assembly (14-19 April 2024 - Vienna, Austria).
The session is co-organized by GM8 (Tectonic, Volcanic, and Regional Geomorphology) and by SSP2 (Stratigraphy, Earth Systems History and Climate Geology) and we hope it could host contributions from a wide range of disciplines.

The submission deadline is January 10, 2024, 13:00 CET. Instructions for the abstract submission can be find at the following link:

Session description:
Classical field-based structural geology surveys on meso-scale fault planes have been widely used to characterize fault systems (e.g., kinematics, slip rates evolutionary stages). In support of these approaches, recent advances in quantitative geomorphology, numerical modelling, source-to-sink systems analyses, facies analysis combined with micropaleontology, and geochronological techniques are revealing the potential that geomorphic and stratigraphic data can have in providing information on fault systems' geometry, kinematics, strain partitioning, deformation onset, fault system propagation, fault slip rates, earthquakes recurrence times, etc.
Advances in these emerging topics produce new insights to structural geology, active tectonics and geodynamics questions, also with important implication on natural hazards assessments and landscape evolution studies.
In this session we welcome studies addressing fault systems characterization, evolution, and hazard assessments using a combination of geomorphic, sedimentologic/stratigraphic, and/or geochronological data. In more detail, the session aims to host contributions dealing with, but not limited to:
- Fault activity and sedimentation;
- Inversion of fluvial topography;
- fault-slip signal propagation through the landscape;
- Connections between stratigraphic and geomorphic records;
- Fault control on sediment dynamics in source-to-sink systems;
- Cyclostratigraphy applied in natural, analog, and numerical environments;
- Fault-controlled spatio-temporal distribution of various depositional facies;
- Tectonically-driven environmental signals encoded into stratigraphic records.

We warmly hope to see you in Vienna!

Best regards,

The conveners: Francesco Pavano, Duna Roda-Boluda, Katarina Gobo
