Seismogeodesy (joint with IASPEI)

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

Vice-Chair: Takuya Nishimura (Kyoto University, Uji, Japan)


  • to actively encourage the cooperation between all geoscientists studying the plate boundary deformation zones, by promoting the exploitation of synergies between different fields;
  • to reinforce collocated 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 promote the application to earthquake and deformation studies of innovative technologies such as optical fibers
  • to be a reference group for the integration of the most advanced geodetic and seismological 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 data and InSAR 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 seismic cycle, transient and instantaneous deformation, and creeping versus seismic slip on faults.
  • to facilitate and stimulate the integrated exploitation of large geodetic and seismological data sets, using Machine Learning and Data Mining approaches
