Pata Days 2020


PATA is the most significant workshop on paleoseismology and active tectonics of the INQUA Focus Group “Earthquake Geology and Seismic Hazard (IFG EGSHaz)”. For first time in South America, we are honored to host the 10th PATA Days event in the hyperarid coastal region of the Atacama Desert. Located in the active continental margin formed by the subduction of the Nazca Plate beneath the South American Plate; a unique tectonic setting for the assessment of megathrust episodes, upper-plate paleo-earthquakes, and paleotsunami records, and their relationship with surface processes and landscape evolution at the Quaternary timescale.



WE INVITE PRESENTATIONS ON:

  • Active tectonics/neotectonics.
  • Tectonic geomorphology
  • Surface faulting
  • Paleoseismology
  • Archaeoseismology
  • Tsunami and paleotsunami records
  • Earthquake-induced landslides
  • Liquefaction
  • Probabilistic Seismic Hazard Assessment
  • Probabilistic Fault Hazard Displacement Analysis
  • Quaternary geochronology
  • Shallow geophysics for seismic hazard assessment
  • Remote sensing of earthquake deformation (LiDAR, InSAR)

 

CAPACITY FOR 98 ATTENDEES

(80 REGULAR MEMBERS, 18 EARLY CAREER RESEARCHERS)

Meeting Venue

The PATA DAYS event will be held at the wonderful Hornitos Resort (HOTEL HORNITOS WEB PAGE), which is situated on an uplifted Late Quaternary marine terrace. Hornitos Resort’s facilities include WIFI, 2 swimming pools, Restaurant and Bar.

The registration for PATA DAYS include shared rooms, breakfast, lunch, coffee break, and dinner. Alcoholic beverages are not included in the registration fee.

Field trips

 

One day pre-and post-meeting field trips are included in the program to visit fault scarps related to the Atacama Fault System, faulted and uplifted marine terraces and coastal geomorphology.

Additionally, the 2020 PATA workshop includes two optional pre-meeting and post-meeting fieldtrips to visit historical and prehistorical coastal records of large tsunamigenic megathrusts and upper-plate fault activity.

Optional pre-Meeting Field Trip to commemorate the legacy of Ricardo Thiele / November 5-6-7, 2020: “Paleoseismology of the San Ramón Fault and Quaternary tectonics of the Andes of Santiago”.

  • Piedmont of Santiago valley, paleoseismological observations and seismic risk
  • Maipo river terraces and Quaternary tectonics
  • Tectonics and seismicity of the Andes Cordillera in the metropolitan region of Santiago

 

Optional post-Meeting Field Trips to commemorate the legacy of Luc Ortlieb / November 13-14-15, 2020: “Subduction earthquake processes, near surface ruptures and Quaternary landscape evolution in the northern Chilean forearc”

  • Geoarchaeological records of large historic and prehistoric subduction earthquakes and tsunamis
  • Historical tsunami sites and impact of the last Mw 8.8 1877 earthquake
  • Earthquake and coastal uplifting in the Mejillones Peninsula
  • Quaternary upper plate fault activity
  • Coseismic cracks during subduction earthquakes
  • Surface processes in the most hyperarid desert on Earth

 

Important logistic information for post-conference fieldtrip

The post-conference fieldtrip will start early morning on November 13 from Antofagasta, and will end on November 15 in Iquique, which is located around 400 km further north from Antofagasta (5-6 hrs by car). The night from November 12 to November 13 and the night from November 15 to November 16 will be provided and included in the post conference fee. On November 16, early in the morning, we will return with the trucks and by bus from Iquique to Antofagasta. So, it is possible to take fly tickets to return from Iquique airport on November 16, or from Antofagasta airport (after 16 hrs, on November 16), towards Santiago and then to the international destinations.”

 

Important logistic information for pre-conference fieldtrip

The pre-conference fieldtrip will start early morning on November 5 from the Faculty of Physical and Mathematical Sciences of the University of Chile (Beauchef 850, in Santiago center town), and will end on November 7 late in the afternoon. Accommodation during the night from November 7 to November 8 will be considered. Please, take a fly early morning on November 8 from Santiago airport to Antofagasta. The following flights are available

Grants Available

We have limited funds available for Early Career Researchers (ECRs), and Researchers from Developing Countries (DCRs) are all eligible to receive a grant that will pay for registration fees, hotel accommodations and meals. In addition, ECRs living abroad are eligible to receive a grant for traveling support. ECRs are scientists within seven years of their latest degree (BSc., MSc., PhD), and who not hold a permanent position. We count students as ECRs Based on the number of applicants we will support registration fees and maybe also travel costs. Your brief application must include the following:

  • Cover letter explaining your areas of research and how you would profit from attending the meeting (half page);
  • Valid proof of status (for students only);
  • List of other available funding (if applicable);
  • A proposed budget and the amount of support you apply for.

Apply below in the Application Form link before February 28

Please note that we cannot pay any support in advance.
We expect everyone who receives funding to present a study at the conference (oral or poster), so do not forget to submit an abstract, otherwise your application will not be considered.
