    • Tectonics
    • Geodesy
    • Local and regional seismicity
    • Seismology of the earthquake sequence
    • Evaluation of strong ground motion recordings
    • Tsunami
  • Geotechnical aspects of the 2023 Kahramanmaraş earthquake
    • Landslides and rockfall
    • Surface rupture and interaction with structures
    • Liquefaction and subsidence
    • Bridge foundations and approach structures
    • Retaining structure
    • Limiting distances for ground effects
