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.

Earthquake Watch July: Perryville, Alaska
One year ago, we started a series of blog posts synthesising the main results and discussions about the most significant earthquakes recorded recently, previously called “Earthquake of the month” and now known as “Earthquake Watch.” In our first edition, we reported on the 2020 Simeonof earthquake M 7.8 that occurred in Alaska (read here), and today we return to the same region with another interesting earthquake. On July 29th at 06:15 (UTC), a large earthquake M8.2 occurred in the Alaska …
“State of the ECS”: Proudly presenting the new commers!
Maria here! Well, it has been some time but now we have some exciting news! Our little ECS group is not that little anymore. After EGU five, yes I repeat, five new members joined our team! Yay. Without further ado, I give the floor to the newbies, so they can introduce themselves. Hi everyone! This is Angel! (Yes, it’s my real name!) I’m a geophysics PhD student at ETH Zurich studying core seismic phases with AlpArray. I have always enjoyed …
