Interview on RTS

The M6.2 Norcia (Italy) earthquake that occurred on August 24th has received quite a bit of media attention. You can find local reports and photos, risk analyses and many related news on nearly all platforms. The day after the event RTS has called György Hetényi for a short interview about progress in earthquake “forecasting” – you can listen to it here.

School on Seismology beyond the textbooks and General Assembly of the European Seismological Commission

Leonardo Colavitti will participate to an Advanced School on “Seismology beyond textbooks” organised by the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) from August 29th to September 3rd in Miramare, Trieste, Italy. At this link are the program details of the School.

The week after he will be at the 35th General Assembly of the European Seismological Commission (ESC) that will be held from 4th to 11th September 2016 in Trieste, Italy (The website of the conference is here).

On Tuesday September 6 at 12:15 p.m., Leonardo will be talking about Local earthquake tomography in the junction between Southeastern Alps and Dinarides using the seismic data of the CE3RN. Here you can find the abstract of the planned talk.
