The GSI has participated in the national earthquake drill 2017 11.6.2017.
GSI scientists analyzed seismic and geological data and produced earthquake scenario maps and hazard maps, (Scenario maps run by Hazus and 'veronic' module) which were transferred in real time to the National Committee for Earthquake Preparedness, to the Civil Defense and to the Police.
A symposium on "Israeli-Italian cooperation on seismic hazard, geodynamics of the Mediterranean and georesources" will take place on June 4 2017 at Tel Aviv university.
This symposium is part of collaboration between the GSI and the Italian Institute of Geophysics and Volcanoloty (INGV), with the support of the Italian Embassy.
On 4.5.17 we had a day of talks on the research being carried out at the GSI on the Dead Sea and surroundings.
Topics ranged from lowered lake levels, water balance, sinkhole formation and forecast, Red-Med Peace conduit, tectonics and earthquake hazards.
Dr. Orit Hyams-Kaphzan and Dr. Ahuva Almogi-Labin from the GSI took part in a study that was published in “Limnology and Oceanography Letters”.
