The school of young scientists "System analysis and evaluation of seismic hazard"

Venue: Lomonosov Moscow State University, Moscow, 12-15 July 2016. The school is organized in the framework of the Russian Science Foundation (RSF) project № 15-17-30020 "Application of the system analysis to assess the seismic hazard in the regions of Russia, including the Caucasus, the Crimea and the Altai-Sayany-Baikal" with the support of the Committee on Data for Science and Technology of the international Council for Science (ICSU CODATA).

The main theme of the School relates to the developed in recent years new methods of seismic hazard assessment and integration of obtained results on the basis of system analysis methods. Examples of seismic hazard assessment will be given for specific seismically active regions. The lecturers of the School are leading scientists - representatives of the Geophysical Center RAS (GC RAS), Mechanics and Mathematics Faculty of Moscow State University, ICSU CODATA, the Schmidt Institute of Physics of the Earth, Russian Academy of Sciences, the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (Laxenburg, Austria), the Institute of Earth Physics of Paris (France), the Institute of Earthquake Prediction Theory and Mathematical Geophysics, Russian Academy of Sciences (IEPT RAS), University of Trieste (Italy) and other scientific institutions. The lectures will focus on the following topics:

  • use of artificial intelligence methods for the prediction of the possible locations of strong earthquakes;
  • morphostructural zoning and its use for predicting the possible places of occurrence of strong earthquakes;
  • seismic hazard assessment on the basis of the General Law of similarity for earthquakes, summarizing the fundamental relation — the Gutenberg-Richter law;
  • systematic algorithmic approach to seismic hazard assessment;
  • modeling of block systems dynamics and faults and seismic activity;
  • related matters of advanced data management and systems analysis.

Along with lectures, during each working day two hours will be devoted to direct scientific discussions between participants and lecturers of the School. It will provide participants with the opportunity to penetrate deeply into the use of methods of seismic hazard assessment as well as to discuss their research and scientific projects.
