ESRF Seminar (hybrid mode)
Tuesday, June 27th, 2:00 p.m. (Paris time)

Presented by:
Prof. François RENARD, Head of the University of Oslo NJORD department, Norway

Venue: ESRF Auditorium & online

On February 6, 2023, Turkey and Syria experienced two simultaneous major
earthquakes along a well-known tectonic plate boundary. The occurrence
of these earthquakes caught experts off guard as they could not be
predicted. Here, I will provide an overview of our current understanding
regarding the mechanics behind these seismic events. Additionally, I
will highlight how experiments conducted at the European Synchrotron
Radiation Facility (ESRF) can contribute to unraveling the intricate
processes associated with earthquakes.
