School for Young Scientists
"Methods of Comprehensive
Assessment of Seismic Hazard"

Moscow, 3-7 July 2017
Venue: Schmidt Institute of Physics of the Earth of the RAS

The School is funded by Russian Science Foundation (RSF) within the framework of RSF Project 15-17-30020 "Application of systems analysis for estimation of seismic hazard in the regions of Russia".

The subject area of the School will be devoted to the new methods developed recently for seismic hazard assessment and integration on the basis of the systems analysis of results obtained by these methods. Examples of seismic hazard assessment for specific regions will be also considered.

Lectures at the School will be given by leading scientists representing Geophysical Center, Russian Academy of Sciences, Moscow, Russia (GC RAS), Schmidt Institute of Physics of the Earth, Russian Academy of Sciences, Moscow, Russia (IPE RAS), Institute of Earth Physics of Paris, Paris, France (IPGP), Institute of Earthquake Prediction Theory and Mathematical Geophysics, Russian Academy of Sciences, Moscow, Russia (IEPT RAS), University of Trieste, Trieste, Italy (UNITS) and other.

Lectures will focus on the following specific topics:
  • application of system analysis methods to the problem of seismic hazard assessment;
  • determination of areas prone to large earthquakes by means of different methods;
  • application of the Unified Scaling Law for Earthquakes (USLE) for seismic hazard and risk assessment;
  • databases based on the results the seismic hazard assessment;
  • modeling of blocks-and-faults system dynamics and seismicity;
  • aftershock activity express-assessment;
  • neo-deterministic approach to dynamical seismic hazard assessment;
  • statistical seismology methods.
