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.

Maria here. Happy new year! Starting this year, the ECS Team would like to try something new. We realised that we are your reps, but probably you have no idea who we are and what we are up to! Therefore, we will be sharing with you recent experiences, things we discovered that might be interesting to you, or just let you know what we are doing for the ECS seismology community recently. So, here we go. I am the editor …
On this page, we regularly update open positions in Seismology for early career scientists. Do you have a job on offer? Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org Please, note that other available research positions are displayed on the EGU Jobs Portal. Special Thanks to Eric Löberich for researching job postings for the ECS. Latest open positions: PostDoc at Swiss Seismological Service, ETH Zurich: “We are looking for a researcher with an interest in developing and applying sophisticated approaches for rapid earthquake characterization …
Maria, a member of our ECS team, recently interviewed Dr Eric Daub from The Alan Truing Institute, London, UK. Here the Seismology ECS Team wants to know how we can do code better. Together. This is the first interview with software engineers explaining the importance of good practices in software development. Dr Eric Daub received his PhD from the University of California, Santa Barbara, in computational physics, where he studied numerical models of earthquake rupture and failure of amorphous materials. …
November was not highlighted by a large event (> M 7). However, the TOP 3 of the largest earthquakes include a deep focus rupture on November 30th in the Tatar Strait between eastern Russia and Sajalin Island (Figure 1). This earthquake (M 6.4) occurred at a depth of ~600 km according to different seismology agencies. The moment tensor representation shows an oblique mechanism with a dominant normal rupture (USGS1, GEOFON2, EMSC3). The earthquake occurred in a prone region for deep …
