The 15th Swiss Geoscience Meeting is held in Davos on November 17-18. Our group will present the following posters:
- Scarponi M, Hetényi G, Plomerová J, Solarino S, Berthet T, Baron L (2017) High resolution imaging of the Ivrea Geophysical Body: A receiver function and gravity approach.
- Hetényi G, Pistone M, Nábělek PI, Baumgartner L (2017) Lhasa Block partial melt zones: matching geophysical characteristics and petrological origin.
- Hetényi G, Molinari I, Clinton J, Kissling E, Alparray Seismic Network Team, Alparray OBS Cruise Crew, Alparray Working Group (2017) The completed AlpArray Seismic Network.
The German component of the AlpArray program runs under a special program (SPP) of the German Science Foundation, under the title Mountain Building Processes in 4D. The kick-off meeting was held in Potsdam on November 9-10, and hosted all German participants (and more) as well as a number of international AlpArray colleagues. More information on MB-4D can be found on their website: www.spp-mountainbuilding.de
The IvreaArray seismic network (an AlpArray Complementary Experiment) installed earlier this year, now has a DOI and can be officially cited:
Hetényi G, Plomerová J, Solarino S, Scarponi M, Vecsey L, Munzarová H, Babuška V, Jedlička P, Kotek J, Colavitti L (2017) IvreaArray – an AlpArray Complementary Experiment. doi:10.5281/zenodo.1038209
The workshop report of the new ICDP initiative DIVE has been accepted for publication in Scientific Drilling. A link to the publication and doi will follow.
David Whipp from University of Helsinki will be visiting us on 9-10th October. He will give the ISTE institute seminar on Tectonic and geomorphic evolution of the Himalaya from two perspectives on Monday 9th at 17:15 in Géopolis-1620. Everyone welcome!
In the first two weeks of September, we carried out a gravimetry campaign together with Théo Berthet in the Ivrea-Verbano Zone. After surmounting some obstacles and during the >100 stops along the >3000 km journey, we could (sometimes) enjoy the scenery as well:
We are happy to announce that the 33rd HKT workshop will take place in Lausanne, Switzerland, from September 10th to 12th, 2018. Further news will appear with time on the conference website: www.unil.ch/hkt2018
We look forward to see you at the meeting and at the pre-conference field-trip in the Alps!
In a week-long field effort, 7 researchers from Uni. Lausanne, IG Prague and INGV Genova have installed IvreaArray, a 10-station broadband seismological array in NE Italy. The station spacing is ca. 5 km along a West-East line, and operation is foreseen for 1 year.
Sarah Incel from ENS Paris will be visiting us on 6-7th July. She will give a seminar on Experimental constraints on rheology during eclogite-facies metamorphic reactions, on Thursday 6th at 16:15 in Géopolis-1628. Everyone interested in rock physics, lab experiments, petrology, dehydration reactions (and more) is welcome!
