101st Journées Luxembourgeoises de Géodynamique (JLG)

Posted in: News > Upcoming Meeting

After a 2-years break imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic, the European Center for Geodynamics and Seismology (ECGS) is pleased to announce the organization of the 101st edition of its meeting series Journées Luxembourgeoises de Géodynamique (JLG), to be held from 5-7 September 2022 in Luxembourg. The JLG are intended to serve as a platform for scientists throughout the various disciplines of the Earth Sciences to meet and discuss in a rather informal setting in order to foster the international collaboration.

This 101st edition of the JLG is dedicated to the subject of Intracontinental basaltic volcanic fields and is co-organized between the GFZ German Research Centre for Geosciences and ECGS. In western Europe, two such significant volcanic systems, the Eifel Volcanic Field (EVF) in Germany and the Massif Central in France, are presently considered active, although none of them has erupted in historical times. In particular in the EVF, signs of unrest such as earthquakes typical for volcanic environments and significant surface uplift have been detected in recent years. These observations raise important questions on the underlying processes and potential consequences, highlighting the need for an in-depth study of these systems.

The 101st JLG meeting places itself in the context of the major scientific initiative led by the MAARE consortium in Germany. While the focus region of the meeting will therefore naturally be the near-by Eifel Volcanic Field (EVF), the meeting aims at fostering a holistic view on this type of volcanic systems in general, including all relevant disciplines such as geophysics, volcanology, geodesy, geochemistry, geochronology, geology, petrology, etc. We therefore welcome contributions on all target regions that provide insight into intracontinental volcanic fields, such as the Massif Central in France.

98th JLG: European ground motion models from the past to the future

Archived in: Archived News > Past Event

The 98th “Journées Luxembourgeoises de Géodynamique” (JLG) took place on 14-16 November 2016 at the Alvisse Parc Hotel in Luxembourg City. The 98th edition focused on the subject of European ground motion models from the past to the future: Lessons learned and new trends and was held as a strongly discussion-based workshop. The 98th JLG were organised by ECGS and Section 2.6 of the German Research Center for Geosciences (GFZ) in Potsdam, Germany.

ECGS & ESC/EAEE Joint Workshop: Earthquake and Induced Multi-Risk Early Warning and Rapid Response

Archived in: Archived News > Events > No category > Past Event

The 2015 ECGS workshop, organized in collaboration with the European Seismological Commission (ESC) and the European Association for Earthquake Engineering (EAEE), aimed at providing a platform to gather around one table scientists and engineers, including researchers and engineering practioners, to discuss and look for solutions to the problems still encountered in and foster their collaboration.

ECGS Workshop 2012: Earthquake source physics on various scales

Archived in: Events > Past Event

The aim of the ECGS workshop 2012 was bringing scientists from all around the world working on all aspects of earthquake source physics and scaling around one table to discuss and look for solutions to the problems still encountered. A range of research groups has made significant developments since the last major conference purely dedicated to radiated energy and the physics of faulting held in 2005 in Portland, Maine, USA (American Geophysical Union Chapman conference). The major aim of this 2012 ECGS workshop is therefore to consolidate conflicting views and decipher the reasons for these discrepancies as well as to foster collaborations of scientists working on all scales of the problem.
