• Special Issue for 2023 Türkiye/Syria earthquakes


    Seismica is soliciting submissions for a special issue, "Insights and lessons from the devastating 2023 Kahramanmaraş, Türkiye earthquake sequence."

    We are all absolutely heartbroken at the sheer devastation and loss of life following the Mw7.8 and Mw7.5 earthquakes that hit Türkiye and Syria in February 2023. As scientists who study the physical mechanisms and impacts of earthquakes, we know all too well about their power, yet the horrendous scenes coming out of Türkiye and Syria have still hit us hard. There will be numerous scientific analyses from the dense observational datasets that captured these earthquakes and their consequences. We hope that these analyses will provide new insights into one of the largest continental earthquakes and feed directly into improved disaster risk reduction worldwide. To facilitate the dissemination of these vital scientific insights, Seismica is announcing a special journal issue on this important earthquake sequence, with papers free-to-publish and free-to-read.
