EGU 2011 Session: Rock Physics and Natural Hazards
From: Sergio Vinciguerra <vinciguerra@xxxxxxx>

Dear Colleague,
we would like to encourage you to contribute with a presentation to the session on “Rock Physics and Natural Hazards at the EGU Meeting, to be held in Vienna, Austria  from 3rd to 8th April 2011 (for details:  http://meetingorganizer.copernicus.org/EGU2011/session/6459).

Convener: Sergio Vinciguerra
Co-Conveners: Philip Benson, Daniel Faulkner, Giulio Di Toro

Deadline for receiving abstracts is 10th January 2011

A description of the session is also provided below.

Please pass this information to colleagues and students working in this field. I apologise for multiple posting.

Thank you

Kind regards

Sergio Vinciguerra

Event information

Natural hazards events such as earthquakes or volcanic eruptions involve activation of coupled thermo-hydro-chemo-mechanical processes in rocks. Understanding these dynamic coupled processes is therefore of key importance in elucidating our comprehension of earthquakes and volcanic unrests and essential for the mitigation of seismic and volcanic hazard.
Rock physics experiments and numerical models can help us to understand and constrain the mechanisms of natural hazards from the micro to the macro scale. We invite novel contributions based on laboratory experiments, numerical modeling and field work (or a combination of these) relative to the understanding of:

1) Fault evolution in the interseismic period, including healing, and sealing processes,
2) Rupture and frictional processes: experiments and modeling
3) Rock deformation and coupled processes in rocks,
4) Fault structure and mechanics, from the field and laboratory to exploratory drilling of major faults,
5) Fracture and flow in volcanic and geothermal areas and the physical properties of volcanic rocks
