New INQUA website and TERPRO online membership form

INQUA has a wonderful new website: https://inqua.org/. Most importantly, it now has a form to register with the TERPRO commission (becoming a member = subscribing to the mailing list): https://inqua.org/commissions/terpro/join. Becoming a member doesn’t lead to any obligations, but comes with two advantages:
1) You will be informed about TERPRO news every now and then;
2) You’ll have the right to vote for the new TERPRO leadership!

There are a couple of changes ahead of us, let’s make sure the earthquake community makes itself heard. During the past years, INQUA-TERPRO has always supported our PATA Days meetings by sponsoring travel grants for
early career researchers and researchers from developing countries. You joining TERPRO will help to continue that amazing work and to support PATA Days, ECRs & DCRs in the future. So please register!

Thanks and see you in Thessaloniki: https://www.patadays2018.org/

3rd IGCP 639 meeting, 16-23 September, 2018 – Sea Level Change from Minutes to Millennia

The 3rd annual IGCP 639 meeting will take place from 16-23 September, 2018, in Italy. IGCP project 639 deals with Sea Level Change from Minutes to Millennia. The meeting will cover all IGCP related science such as sea level, climate change, tectonics, earthquakes, tsunami, and coastal inundation.
It’s a joint meeting with INQUA project CMP1701P “Late Quaternary record of coastal inundation due to earth surface deformation, tsunami and storms”, CMP1601P “HOLSEA” and CMP1603P “MOPP-MEDFLOOD”. Two days of scientific sessions at Taranto University will be followed by a four-day field trip to Catania.
