In the last 10 years or so, great advances have converged towards a much
more complete picture of earthquake-related processes. As the quality,
quantity and distribution of seismic, geodetic and geologic data have
improved, so has the resolution of our understanding of these processes.
Additionally, the occurrences of several mega-thrust and continental
earthquakes have fed the scientific community with rich datasets. These
advances have revealed the ubiquitous nature of aseismic slip.
*The goal of this school is to give students, post-docs and young
scientists a snapshot of our current understanding of how earthquakes
nucleate and can be triggered*. About 20 scientists from all around the
world will give lectures, together with ‘hands-on’ classes focusing on
methods and software. A large spectrum of topics will be covered, from the
analysis and modeling of regional-scale geodetic data, to the very detailed
investigation of repeating earthquakes at the 100 meter asperity scale.
Most topics will be covered by different lectures with contrasting views.
The school is intended to facilitate future collective momentum towards
earthquake preparedness and forecasting. Financial support is available
for US-based scientists, particularly students and post-docs.
