Special Issue J. Seismology
December 1, 2010
Dr. Simone Cesca, Dr. Bernard Dost and Dr. Adrien Oth are pleased to announce a Special Issue on Journal of Seismology, which will be dedicated to Trigerred and Induced Seismicty. The main theme of the special issue is on analysis and modeling of triggered and induced seismicity at different spatial and temporal scales. The issue will comprise seismicity triggered and/or induced by human activities as well as by transient natural phenomena of non-tectonic origin. The submission deadline is fixed to May 31, 2011.
21-24 February 2011
All researchers involved in the MINE project, as well as Mr. Alexander Rohr, who temporarily collaborate to the project, took part in the DGG Tagung, in Cologne, where the project presented 4 poster contributions.
03-08 April 2011
Dr. Simone Cesca and MINE PhD students Mr. Francesco Grigoli, Mr. A. Tolga Sen and Ms. Samira Maghsoudi participated to the EGU General Assembly in Vienna, Austria, where the MINE project contributed with 4 poster presentations.
New collaboration, IGF-PAS
June 26, 2011
Dr. Simone Cesca and Mr. Ali Tolga Sen visited the Institute of Geophysics, Polish Academy of Sciences (IGF PAS), in Warsaw, to a start a new collaboration (Dr. Beata Orlecka-Sikora, Prof. Dr. Stanislav Lasocki), which will focus on the analysis of source mechanisms at the Rudna copper mine, SW Poland. A 2 weeks stay of Mr. Sen at the Institute allowed to deepen the discussion on the seismicity at Rudna mine, and included a visit to the mine with Polish colleagues.
