Seismogeodesy (joint with IASPEI)

Chair: Jean-Mathieu Nocquet (Université Côte D’Azur, IRD, CNRS, OCA & Institut de Physique du Globe de Paris).

Vice-Chair: Masayuki Kano (Tohoku University, Japan)


Objectives of SC 3.5 include:
  • to actively encourage the cooperation between all geoscientists studying the plate boundary deformation zones, by promoting the exploitation of synergies between different fields;
  • to promote open science through open data policy, publicly available codes and algorithms;
  • to reinforce joint and integrated geodetic and seismological monitoring of seismically active areas by increasing and/or developing infrastructures dedicated to broadband observations; from the seismic wave band to the permanent displacement;
  • to be a reference group for the integration of the most advanced geodetic and geophysical techniques by developing consistent methodologies for data reduction, analysis, integration, and interpretation;
  • to act as a forum for discussion and scientific support for international geoscientists investigating the kinematics and mechanics of the plate boundary deformation zone;
  • to promote the use of standard procedures for geodetic data acquisition, quality evaluation, and processing, particularly GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) data and InSAR (Interferometric Synthetic-Aperture Radar) data;
  • to promote earthquake geodesy, the study of seismically active regions with large earthquake potential, and geodetic application to early warning system of earthquakes and tsunamis for hazard mitigation;
  • to promote the role of geodesy in tectonic studies for understanding the relationship between short term versus long term deformation, documenting deformation of all phases of the seismic cycle, including steady and transient deformation, aseismic versus seismic slip on faults.
