1. vEGU21: Gather Online EOS7.6 Session- Earth Sciences and Art - deadline extended:

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

Please note that the deadline for submitting an abstract to EGU2021 has been extended:

Deadline for abstract submission is now 20 January 2021, 13:00 CET

If you haven't done it yet, to submit to our session go to:
Session EOS7.6 Scientists, artists and the Earth: co-operating for a better planet: https://meetingorganizer.copernicus.org/EGU21/session/40015

For more details on the abstract submission please read carefully the following link:

Due to the COVID pandemic, this will be a virtual conference: vEGU21: Gather Online.

If you want to learn about our past sessions dedicated to Earth sciences and Art, a Special issue dedicated to Five years of Earth sciences and art at the EGU (2015–2019) is in progress at the EGU Geoscience communication journal at the following link:


We would like to hear about the work that you are doing and encourage you to submit your abstracts.

Best regards,

Tiziana Lanza, Louise Arnal, George Sand França, Susan Maciel, Laura Valentini

2. EGU 2021 - Seismic and aseismic deformation at seismogenic faults:

Dear colleagues,

We’d like to draw your attention to our interdisciplinary EGU session, which seeks to deepen our understanding of seismic and aseismic deformation through a diverse set of topics and methodologies. We hope you will consider submitting an abstract! Please feel free to share this with anyone else who might be interested.

Deadline for submission: January 20, 2021

Session TS4.2 - Seismic and aseismic deformation at seismogenic faults: from distributed to localized deformation

Invited speakers:
Daniel Faulkner, University of Liverpool
Kali Allison, University of Maryland

Tectonic plate motion is accommodated through aseismic and seismic slip on faults, visco-elastic processes, and permanent plastic deformation. These processes control the stress redistribution throughout the Earth’s crust at all spatio-temporal scales, from localized earthquakes to long-term and -wavelength viscous interaction. The contribution of other factors, such as fluids, also play an important role in the mechanism of such processes. Understanding the physics and the energy partitioning between these processes at all scales and in various tectonic settings is essential to assess their impact on the seismic cycle. To improve our comprehension in the partitioning between seismic-aseismic slip and brittle-ductile deformation at all scales, we invite contributions that explore the themes described herein, through geophysical and geological observations, laboratory experiments, numerical modelling, and the integration of multiple approaches.

Want to send an announcement to the SCEC community?
SCEC community announcement requests should be sent to scecinfo@usc.edu (no attachments) with the following requirements, in order to best standardize announcements and provide maximum security for recipients. These requirements also ensure that various email applications and any applied filters reach the recipient as the announcement was intended.

1) Use this style guide :
• All text must be in Helvetica, 12 pt.
• Bold, italics, and underline formatting is permitted.
• Consider the length of web links; use bit.ly or tinyurl.com to shorten them as needed.
• NO PDFs, Word Docs, images, or other attachments - all content must be in the email request itself.
2) Include a subject line.

3) Remember, send your request to scecinfo@usc.edu.
