About the Seismology Division
The EGU offers an open and widely recognized forum for discussing a wide range of scientific questions and conducting corresponding research. The impact of geosciences to society has probably never been as high as today. Therefore, we pursue broad and open-minded approaches to tackle important research topics, while simultaneously engaging in interdisciplinary collaborations for the benefit of humanity and our planet.
Seismology as a discipline contributes to a large variety of both basic and applied scientific fields, and addresses important topics in the context of both natural resources and natural hazards. The seismology (SM) division at EGU aims to strengthen its inter-disciplinarity and impact by driving the development from static to dynamic geophysical models, by conducting research that spans from acquisition parameters to petrophysical properties, and by supporting the transition from geo-modeling to geo-technical application. Thereby, the SM Division will be increasingly able to make relevant forecasts and provide valuable information to tackle future challenges in securing natural resources and quantifying natural hazards.

“State of the ECS”: Getting back to normal…?
Matthew here! Since the end of the Summer, across Europe there were a few months of some kind of normality, and the ECS team enjoyed the freedoms that were on offer. Field work! In-person conferences! Actually seeing someone else in the office!?! As the winter draws in (how can it be December already?!?), and the future looks a bit more uncertain, we hope reading about what the team have been getting up to will help to keep the cold months …
