The IASC Fellowship Program is meant to engage ECS in the work of the IASC Working Groups (WGs): Atmosphere, Cryosphere, Marine, Social & Human and Terrestrial. Each year, one Fellow per WG is chosen. IASC Fellows are doctoral or postdoctoral researchers who actively participate in selected activities of the IASC WGs. They are expected to scientifically contribute but also to help organizing specific activities and to coordinate the reporting to the IASC Secretariat. Thus, the Fellowship Program provides the opportunity for ECSs to become involved in leading-edge scientific activities at a circumarctic and international level, to build an international network of contacts and also to develop management skills.
The total duration of the IASC Fellowship Program is 1+2 years. In their first year, selected Fellows will receive travel support to attend two consecutive Arctic Science Summit Weeks (ASSWs) where the annual WG meetings are held. After the first year, Fellows have the opportunity to stay involved for up to 2 more years without dedicated funding support from IASC and the further involvement is individually decided by the WG Steering Group and the Fellow.
For more information please see or contact the IASC Fellowship Coordinator Maja Lisowska:
For this round of applications, interested ECSs have to fulfill the following criteria:
PhD student/candidate or postdoctoral researcher (up to 5 years past the PhD)
  • able to commit to participating in the activities of one of the IASC WGs for at least 12 months from March 2016 to April 2017.

Call for Submission _Seismic Atlas (Wiley Blackwell)

Dear members,    

Our co-edited "Atlas of Structural Geological Interpretation on Seismic Images” will be published by Wiley Blackwell. We invite you and your research group to submit four contributions/entries (four seismic colour images and captions), from any terrain, in this atlas. You can submit your already published images after taking due permission.

If you are interested, kindly express interest within 29-Sept-2015 at      and submit contributions within Nov 2015. Please ask for clarifications if you need so.
1. Expression of interest:                                                     29-Sept-2015
2. Submission of images and captions:                                Nov 2015
3. Review comments reach authors:                                    Dec 2015
4. Book ms submitted to Wiley Blackwell:                         March 2016
5. Book publication:                                                            October 2016

Wiley Blackwell will publish the atlas with all images in colour. Therefore we are seeking high resolution (300 dpi) colour images from potential authors. Images need not come from the same terrain, and may represent different structures. Captions should be wellexplanatory and utilize up to 500 words. Compulsorily provide us uninterpreted seismic images as well. Include explanatory sketches/models/maps/3D views/seismic attribute images/well data etc. to support your interpretation.  It will be good to provide up to 4 references per caption so that the reader can go back to the key publications and learn more about that structure and the terrain.

Interpretation could be inherently subjective. To address this important yet commonly overlooked aspect, we wish to get some of the submitted seismic images interpreted by another author who is unaware of the terrain. If you agree to have your seismic image interpreted by another author, please mention that in the cover letter. There is nothing wrong or right in another interpretation, and experienced interpreters tend to be very close to reality (Bond et al. 2015, Geol. Soc. Sp. Pub. 421: This will be very informative for the readers and may even provide the contributors with possible alternate interpretations. We may keep such re-interpretations in a web-based repository as “Supplementary Material”.

If you have diffraction seismic images as a new imaging technology, we would encourage to submit those images along with their interpretations. Please demonstrate how they are better in imaging certain structures.

We intend to have the following chapters/divisions in the book. However, being an edited volume, the final chapters will actually depend on the actual contributions received. We (editors) will write brief introduction for individual chapters. In case your contribution does not match with the contents that we have set, we can add up a miscellaneous section to incorporate such images and contributions.

We anticipate the book will be of great use in both academics and intustry.

Tentative contents:
1. General information on seismic technology
2. Structural geology basics
3. Faults
            i. Normal faults
            ii. Reverse faults/Thrusts
            iii. Strike-slip faults
            iv. Fault linkages/transfers/relay ramps
            v. Reactivation
            vi. Inversion
            vii. Sediment-fault interactions

4. Folds
            i. Compressional folds: antiforms
            ii. Compressional folds: synforms
            iii. Compaction structures
            iv. Forced folds
            v. Roll-over anticlines
            vi. Sediment fold interactions
5. Mobile substrates – shale and salt
            i. Shale Growth Fault Thrusts Belts (GFTBs)
            ii. Salt structures
            iii. Complications in salt and sub-salt interpretations
6. Unique structures

The earthquake felt August 7, 2015 at 3:24 has a tectonic origin. Effect in the subregion of the Great Lakes is characterized by an extensive zone (rifting) whose extension is valued at 1cm per year. Therefore, this tectonic activity is always accompanied by intense seismic activity. Note that the last great earthquake pacer in the region dates back to February 2008.

Location of the earthquake (Epicentre)
The seismic history of the area and damage assessment this morning leads us to hypothesize that the epicenter was located in Kalehe territory (Ihusi on Lake Kivu) near the fault Birava exactly in the Southwest region of Lake Kivu.

Intensity of the earthquake
According to the observation of the damage and the report analysts CEEG Goma this morning, the intensity would be 6 on the scale Merchalli (Magnitude 5.8 on the Richter scale according to the Volcanological Observatory of Goma). It is now difficult to rally this earthquake with volcanic activity in the region and this would have no direct impact on a possible volcanic eruption. The population of Goma has not to worry for now only it must remain vigilant and attentive to the authorities of the directives.
As the earthquake is usually due to a brisque release of energy, a series of small tremors will be felt for a period of 10 to 15 days related to residual energy release and ongoing accumulation.

We note the following damage
Several injuries and loss of life are reported in the towns of Mabingu, Katana (according to a summary report provided by the health zone Kabamba, Katana) Lwiro, Lugendo, Kabamba, Kavumu, Tshovi, Kavumu, Bagira (in town Bukavu) etc.
There are also reports of collapsed houses and more damage.

Population Council
The Centre for Expertise and Geological Survey (CEEG) advise the population of the sub-region of the Great Lakes, Goma and Bukavu in particular to observe the following basic principles:
- Do not freak disaster (earthquake) given that we live in an area with permanent and continuous seismic activity.
- Move away from buildings, suspended and unstable objects in case of an earthquake;

- Protect especially the head by hiding under a table, desk or table doorways during a quake or if there is opportunity to go outside.

YES Network DRC: CESG Celebrates Earth Science Day 2015

The YES Network D.R. Congo Chapter celebrated this year Earth Science Day under the theme:

“Water and its role in the development and stability of the Democratic Republic of Congo”

We share with you a report of this event made by:
 Byamungu Mayange Tomple 
(YES Network-Democratic Republic of Congo section and Geologist of CEGS, email: tomplemayange[at]

The Center of Expertise and Geological Survey (CEGS) co-organizes the “International Day of the Earth Sciences in Africa and the Middle East” in Goma/DR Congo at University of Goma on 20 March 2015 together with the YES Chapter in DR Congo/North Kivu.

The Center of Expertise and Geological Survey (CEGS) is a scientific non-governmental organization. CEGS is a regional survey office and its main objective is to study the geological environments in order to inform the population on the challenges bound to them.  

It is in the scope of celebrating the International Day of the Earth Sciences in Africa and the Middle East commemorated every 19-20-21 March that CEGS with its partners (among them the IAPG - International Association for Promoting Geoethics) organized a conference in Goma (DR Congo) on 20 March on the theme: "Water and its role in the development and stability of the Democratic Republic of Congo", in particular, about the strategies to make the consumption in safe water accessible to all.

  1. Global objective of the conference
    Informing the participants on the potentiality in water usage in the DR Congo and the role of Earth sciences in the resolution of the problem of water deficiency in Africa.. 
  2. Specific objectives
    - To make know the wealth in water of the DR Congo.
    - To bring up the geologist's role facing the water management.
    - To think about the enhancement of the water resources of this vast country.
    - To motivate colleagues about the environmental and biodiversity protection.
The activity have been organized from 12h30 to 15h30.

Here the three under-themes dealt with and the relative speakers:  

- Role, place and the future of the earth sciences in the Great Lakes Region.
(Prof. Robert Wazi Nandefo, professor at the Department of Geology, University of ROUEN, France, University of GOMA, DR Congo and Chairman of CESG-DR Congo)

Prof. Robert Wazi (chairman of CEGS-DR Congo)
Prof Wazi Nandefo started his speech defining geology and talking about its different topics. He mentioned the multiple stakes bound to water policy in the world specifying the potentiality of water management of the DR Congo. He talked about the role played by hydrogeologists in the water management in the Great Lakes Region. The discovery of water sources, the good management of this georesource depends inevitably by geoscientists. So they must work in a collaborative way, following ethical beahviours, in order to guarantee an effective water management in this region.
- The potentialities in water management of the DR Congo: challenges in water accessibility and desertification in Africa.
(Prof. Pigeon Kambale Mahuka, Coordinator of the survey office of the North Kivu Provincial Parliament).

Prof. Kambale Mahuka
Prof Kambale Mahuka started showing that the peace is the fundamental element for the life of human communities, nevertheless water can be an element of potential confict between communities that undermines the peace. He spoke mainly about the international relationships between countries about the water supply and the international laws regulating the water management; he reminded also the strategic role played by the DR Congo in this important issue. He underlined that the Congolese state must respect the following five international principles: the principle of the non-prejudicial use of the national territory, the principle of the diligence and vigilance, the principle of the the cooperation, the principle of the polluter-pays and the precaution principle. For each of these principles Prof Kambale Mahuka illustrated examples. He concluded his intervention saying that the States must maintain pacific relations, being aware that water can represent a potential reason for the outbreak of wars.

- Water and its role in the development and stability of the Democratic Republic of Congo.
(Mr Etienne Nyami, responsible of the production and quality service in the national water office REGIDESO)

Mr. Etienne Nyami

Mr Nyami underlined how water is indispensable for life, then he talked about the role of water supply in the economic development of the DR Congo. About a possible "third world war due to water", Mr Etienne said that is important to develop a solidaristic and optimistic approach avoiding pessimistic views in order to solve problems.

At the end of the conference the following recommendations came from the speakers.

To the national, regional and international organizations:
- continuing the support to the water sector facing multiple challenges;
- acting in synergy so that reaching more impact and success;
- financing local initiatives for the development;
- recruiting geologists in their relative projects on water.

To the REGIDESO for:
- increasing efforts in water provision to the whole city of Goma;
- analyzing permantly the quality of water for a safe consumption by the population;
- thinking on new sources of water catchment for the peripheries of Goma;
- recruiting geologists in its services.

CEGS and YES Network members before the conference.

- continuing to organize such activities in the future.
- Working in partnership with other national and international organizations acting in the same field of intervention;
- making more aware the population about the geological and environmental challenges;
- assuring the intensification and the diversification of actions for the development of the water sector.

YES Network to hold a session in the IGU regional Congress in August 2015 in Russia

C12.16 Commission on Geoparks AND YES Network
Title is "Geoheritages, A Recorder of the Global Change along the Silk Road for Future Sustainable Development"

Conveners as Meng WANG*, Dongying WEI, Alireza Amrikazemi, Tanvi Arora

Silk Road, a series of routes that extend across the Eurasian continent and connect a vast area of land including Russia, Mongolia, Turkey, Iran and the Balkan Peninsula. On one hand the Silk Road is a significant traffic hub between the Asian and Europe continents; moreover it covers areas that are rich in natural resources such as petroleum, natural gas and other minerals. Not only the Silk Road fulfills the mission of providing physical routes with its abundant resources that enhance communication both economically and culturally, but more importantly along the Silk Road there are numerous of natural & culture heritages and geological wonders, for instance the Turpan Basin, the Tianshan mountains, the Pamirs, deserts and lakes. However, the Silk Road has an uncoordinated relationship between the advantages of having rich natural resources with huge future development potential and the relatively weak economical foundation in the majority of the areas, such unbalanced situation has become one of the main factors in the areas of political instability.
The Silk Road plays a significant role in cultural transmission history; it has become a popular research topic in international studies, especially in regards to its earth science researches. The cooperation and co-development of the Silk Road in various aspects including Earth science, mineral resource economy, have been highly emphasized with vital significance and international prospective.
In the past, we did a lot of research about the history heritage in this regions but not Geoheritage, which is also very important and development. The Geoheritage and Culture Heritage, both become one kind of recorder of the whole development of Silk Road from past until now. How it play the rule for the future development? And what it the Global Change impacted on them? And how we could develop the geoheritage and culture heritage for the local future sustainable development with the better protection?
We may want to have the discussing in this session to explore the Geohritage along the silk road, and we may also invite the good plan around the nearby area to find the better way to carry out here.
The session is about the development of Silk Road from the history, Geoheritage and Global change, education and local development in the future.
