Latin American and Caribbean Seismological Commission


The Latin America and Caribbean Seismological Commission (LACSC) is pleased to invite the entire geophysical community of the planet to its II Regional Assembly, which will be held in San José, Costa Rica, from the 20th to the 22nd of June 2016.  LACSC is one of four Regional Commissions of the International Association of Seismology and Physics of the Earth Interior (IASPEI). IASPEI one of eight International Associations of the International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics (IUGG).


During the last few years, the Latin America and Caribbean region has undergone rapid seismological development, in both local network density, as well as scientific production. Individual country networks are beginning to be integrated into large regional, continental and global networks, allowing real time acquisition of a large amount, and variety, of seismic data. Geodynamic control networks on volcanoes and for urban seismology, are opening new windows for the understanding of natural processes that generate disasters, and for the mitigation of their effects.


La Comisión Latinoamericana y del Caribe de Sismología (LACSC) tiene el gusto en invitar a toda la comunidad geofísica del planeta a su II Asamblea Regional que se llevará a cabo en la ciudad de San José, Costa Rica, los días 20, 21 y 22 de junio del 2016.

LACSC en una de las cuatro Comisiones Regionales de la Asociación Internacional de Sismología y Física del Interior de la Tierra (IASPEI); IASPEI a su vez es una de la ocho Asociaciones Internacionales de la Unión Internacional de Geodesia y Geofísica (IUGG).
