[1] We investigate the effect of extended faulting processes and heterogeneous wave propagation on the early warning system capability to predict the peak ground velocity (PGV) from moderate to large earthquakes occurring in the southern Apennines (Italy). Simulated time histories at the early warning network have been used to retrieve early estimates of(More)
Rapid urbanisation, the interconnection of economies and growing dependence on technology makes modern society increasingly vulnerable to natural disasters. In case of earthquakes, the mitigation of seismic risk in urban and industrial area can be effectively accomplished by Earthquake Early Warning systems (EEWS), which performs real-time event detection(More)
The Emilia seismic sequence (Northern Italy) started on May 2012 and caused 17 casualties, severe damage to dwellings and forced the closure of several factories. The total number of events recorded in one month was about 2100, with local magnitude ranging between 1.0 and 5.9. We investigate potential mechanisms (static and dynamic triggering) that may(More)
