BGSG Call for Papers: Special Issue on the 2021 Northern Thessaly, Greece, Earthquake Sequence


The Bulletin of the Geological Society of Greece (BGSG) is inviting papers for a Special Issue on the 2021 Northern Thessaly, Greece, Earthquake Sequence.

The 2021 Northern Thessaly, Greece, Earthquake Sequence included a M6.3 mainshock on March 3, followed 32 hours later by a M6.0 event and a M5.6 event on March 12, and with thousands of smaller aftershocks.  This was the most significant earthquake sequence in northern Thessaly in 80 years, and the first large events in this area of Greece since the major upgrades of the seismological, strong motion and geodetic networks. Remote-sensing imagery is available from a number of satellites and other platforms.  The sequence raises numerous questions related to fault interactions, blind faulting, near- and far-field ground motions, damage distribution, earthquake triggering, liquefaction phenomena and seismic hazard and seismotectonics of the Northern Thessaly.

BGSG welcomes contributions to the Special Issue that focus on these and other scientific aspects of this sequence.

The volume will be in English, but we can aid translation of Greek-language contributions accepted for the volume.

Guest editors for the BGSG Special Issue on the Thessaly Earthquakes are:

Alexandros Chatzipetros (Aristotle University of Thessaloniki) ac@geo.auth.gr  

Christophe Gruetzner (University of Jena) christoph.gruetzner@uni-jena.de  

Haris Kranis (National and Kapodistrian University of Athens) hkranis@geol.uoa.gr  

Deadline for submission of manuscripts: 20 May 2021

Papers submitted earlier will be reviewed as they are received. Papers will be published online upon acceptance and will be collected into an issue of BGSG planned for June - July 2021.

Submit your manuscript in BGSG’s online submission system https://ejournals.epublishing.ekt.gr/index.php/geosociety/about/submissions#onlineSubmissions .  Authors should follow BGSG’s author guidelines.
