Coseismic ground deformation of the 6 April 2009 L’Aquila earthquake (central Italy, Mw6.3)
[1] We provide field data of coseismic ground deformation related to the 6 April Mw 6.3 L'Aquila normal faulting earthquake. Three narrow fracture zones were mapped: Paganica-Colle Enzano (P-E), Mt.Expand

Plio-Quaternary uplift rates in the outer zone of the central Apennines fold-and-thrust belt, Italy
Abstract Geological, seismic and borehole data permitted the reconstruction of the Plio-Quaternary uplift/subsidence and erosion/sedimentation history for the outer sector of the central Apennines.Expand

Fault Segmentation as Constraint to the Occurrence of the Main Shocks of the 2016 Central Italy Seismic Sequence
We perform the finite-extent fault inversion of the three main events of the 2016 Central Italy seismic sequence using near-source strong-motion records. We demonstrate that both earthquakesExpand

Quaternary normal faults, intramontane basins and seismicity in the Umbria-Marche-Abruzzi Apennine Ridge (Italy): contribution of neotectonic analysis to seismic hazard assessment
In the Umbria-Marche-Abruzzi (UMA) Apennine ridge, measurements of the Quaternary amount of displacement, and the longterm slip-rates related to the extensional active faults, were carried out byExpand

Pre-existing cross-structures and active fault segmentation in the northern-central Apennines (Italy)
Abstract The multideformed axial zone of the Apennines provides a great opportunity to explore the influence of pre-existing cross-structures (inherited from pre-Quaternary tectonic phases) on theExpand

The Wonji fault belt (Main Ethiopian Rift): structural and geomorphological constraints and GPS monitoring
Abstract The Wonji Fault Belt (WFB), Main Ethiopian Rift, forms a network of faults oriented NNE-SSW with a Quaternary direction of extension oriented c. N95° E. Faults are spaced between 0.5 and 2Expand

The May 2012 Emilia (Italy) earthquakes: preliminary interpretations on the seismogenic source and the origin of the coseismic ground effects
On May 20, 2012, a Ml 5.9 earthquake (T1) occurred in the Emilia-Romagna Region of northern Italy. This was preceded by a Ml 4.1 foreshock on May 19, 2012, and followed by several aftershocks,Expand

Methods for determining the Pleistocene–Holocene component of displacement on active faults reactivating pre-Quaternary structures: examples from the Central Apennines (Italy)
Abstract In the tectonically active fault system of the Central Apennines Ridge (Italy) several normal/transtensive faults mapped as Quaternary structures show evidence of pre-Neogene thrustingExpand

Deep-seated gravitational slope deformation, large-scale rock failure, and active normal faulting along Mt. Morrone (Sulmona basin, Central Italy): Geomorphological and paleoseismological analyses
Active faulting is one of the main factors that induce deep-seated gravitational slope deformations (DGSDs). In this study, we investigate the relationships between the tectonic activity of the NW–SEExpand

Evaluation of complex site effects through experimental methods and numerical modelling: The case history of Arquata del Tronto, central Italy
Abstract This work deals with the experimental and numerical evaluation of the local seismic response of Arquata del Tronto area (Marche Region, central Italy), severely struck by the Mw 6.0 AugustExpand
