European Comparison of Absolute Gravimeters ECAG-2011

Posted in: Upcoming Meeting

Some of you have been asking me if there will be a comparison of absolute gravimeters in Walferdange in 2011. The answer is definitively “YES”.

As usual, I propose that all the gravimeters will measure at 3 different sites starting the Tuesday 8th of November 2011 at 8 pm and finishing the Friday 11th of November 2011 in the morning.

If you are not able to come at the propsosed dates, you are more than welcome to come at any time before or after the comparison. Your results will sill be included in the final report.
The superconducting gravimeter will provide a precise estimate of the geophysical gravity changes.

There are 16 sites in the underground laboratory. If there are more than 16 participants, I will have to organise the comparison on the basis of “first come, first serve”.

Once more, I have decide call this comparison “European” to avoid confusion with the official ICAG. For those who are interested, we will propose the comparison to be registrered as a EURAMET key comparison.

Anyway, I encourage teams from non-European countries to participate to ensure a link between other regional comparisons organized in other parts of the world.

I hope to see you or your team in November 2011!!

101st Journées Luxembourgeoises de Géodynamique (JLG)

Archived in: News > Past Event

After a 2-years break imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic, the European Center for Geodynamics and Seismology (ECGS) was pleased to organise the 101st edition of its meeting series Journées Luxembourgeoises de Géodynamique (JLG), held from 5 to 7 September 2022 in Luxembourg and dedicated to the subject of Intracontinental basaltic volcanic fields. This year’s meeting was co-organized with the GFZ German Research Centre for Geosciences in Potsdam, Germany. 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.

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 > 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.
