Welcome to QH, where you'll find info on earthquakes and tsunamis. The blog mainly focuses on palaeoseismology, the scientific field concerned with finding evidence of past seismic events. Researching earthquakes and tsunamis that have already happened may allow us to better understand future hazards.

Last week I was delighted to welcome fellow academics, friends and collaborators from Potsdam Universty, Ghent University, Durham University and The Geological Survey of Belgium to join me for a symposium on subduction zone palaeoseismology. The day-long meeting was an opportunity to present and discuss the different approaches that we use when studying past earthquakes, tsunamis and subduction zone behaviour.
