The 12th Euro-conference on Rock Physics and Geo-Mechanics Menu


The 12th Euro-conference on Rock Physics and Geo-Mechanics, "Bridging between Rock Physics and Structural Geology", will be held in Ma'ale HaHamisha, Israel. Sessions will include fault mechanics, static and dynamic deformation, fault healing/sealing, time dependent deformation, induced seismicity, scaling relations, and fluid driven fracture mechanics.

The field trip will include a visit to the Dead Sea (the lowest location on Earth‘s surface), the seismically-active Dead Sea Fault system, the rising Sedom salt diapir, and soft-sediment deformation within seismogenic slumps. An alternative tourism-oriented trip to Jerusalem and the vicinity will be offered to interested participants and accompanying persons.
