During the first week of May an international workshop will take place to discuss the Ivrea ICDP project between geologists, geochemists and geophysicists. Our group’s interest is to compile existing and to carry out new intra-crustal images from gravity and seismology, on which György Hetényi will give a presentation. More details on the Ivrea ICDP project can be found here.
Our paper on “Seismotectonics of Bhutan: Evidence for segmentation of the Eastern Himalayas and link to foreland deformation” has just been accepted for publication in EPSL. More details (doi etc.) will follow as soon as available.
Next week we will be attending the EGU General Assembly in Vienna. Here is a list of our planned contributions:

The new rock stand featuring typical rocks from the Valais (and therefore the Alps) is cow completed and can be visited at the CPPS (“Centre Pédagogique pour la Prévention des Séismes”) in Sion. Many thanks to Guillaume Antonioli, Nikhil Sharma, Jean-Luc Epard, and all sample contributors!
Following the largest earthquake in Switzerland since in the past 12 years (magnitude 4.6) on Monday, in the Helvetic Nappes around the cantons Uri, Schwyz and Glarus, RTS Couleur 3 made an interview with György Hetényi about seismicity in Switzerland and in general. You can listen to it here (musical break from 3’00” to 5’15”).
Following a public outreach presentation on geoscience research in the Himalaya at the Hungary-Bhutan Friendship Society, György Hetényi was interviewed in the radio station Klubrádió‘s evening talk emission Dobszerda.
If you are interested and understand Hungarian, you can listen to it here:
Our receiver function paper on Bhutan is now accepted at JGR (see under Publications)
Kristel Chanard has been successful in obtaining a permanent position in Paris and will leave UNIL soon but stays in touch with the group for forthcoming research. Congratulations, Kristel, and best wishes!!
