Field trip on 26 October 2018: Han-sur-Lesse and Rochefort caves
Organized by the Royal Observatory of Belgium .

The main topics are: historical earthquakes, macroseismology, archeoseismology, paleoseismology, earthquake catalogues and databases, active faults, seismotectonics, neotectonics, and their contribution to the knowledge of seismic hazard and a better understanding of the long term seismic activity. A specific session will be devoted to earthquake effects in caves.
