Friday, May 18:

First field-trip in Vrancea seismic region: Buzau Mountains constitute a unit of the Curvature sector of the SE Carpathians, built mainly on Cretaceous (at the interior) and Palaeogene flysch deposits. The field trip’s focus will be directed towards high magnitude-low frequency landslides (deep seated, mainly dormant, with large reactivation potential) and their climatic and seismic triggers. Aspects concerning deep-focal seismicity, lito-structural conditioning, active and blind faults will be also discussed. The human impact on the environment will be emphasized through case-studies like road and reservoir construction. Morphodynamic mapping, landslide susceptibility and hazard scenarios, numerical and statistical models will be detailed through field examples. Lunch included.

Saturday, May 19:

  • 09:00 – 10:15 – Oral presentations, SNG Session 2;
  • 10:15 – 11:00 – Keynote Lecture 3 (TBA);
  • 11:00 – 11:30 –  Coffee break;
  • 11:30 – 13:00 – Oral presentations, JGM Session 2;
  • 13:00 – 14:30 – Lunch break;
  • 14:30 – 16:30 – Oral presentations, SNG/JGM Session 3;
  • 16:30 – 17:15 – Closing remarks;
  • 17:15 – 21:00 – Field trip and festive dinner.

Sunday, May 20:

Second field-trip in Vrancea seismic region: Buzau Subcarpathians are representing a hilly transition unit developed on Mio-Pliocene molasse deposits at the foothills of the Carpathians. The area is severely affected by a wide range of slope and channel processes, frequently interconnected, with a preparing/triggering potential enhanced by climatic and human-driven factors and more important, active seismicity (the intermediate-depth Vrancea seismic region generated throughout the last 300 years 12 earthquakes with Mw > 7, out of which 4 above 7.5 and 3 between 7.7 and 7.9). The focus of the field trip will be on the conceptual framework of single-to-multi-hazard and on the inter and transdisciplinarity characteristics of geomorphology within a multi-risk approach. Lunch included; afternoon arrival to Bucharest (airport, city centre).

A detailed programme will be issued following the abstracts’ evaluation (mid March).
