A 125 Kyr‐long geological record of seismic source repeatability: the Messina Straits (southern Italy) and the 1908 earthquake (Ms 71/2)
The occurrence of characteristic earthquakes along segments of major active belts has been described as early as the beginning of the century. The large 1908, Messina Straits, blind normal faultingExpand

Twenty years of paleoseismology in Italy
Abstract Italy has one of the most complete and historically extensive seismic catalogues in the World due to a unique and uninterrupted flow of written sources that have narrated its seismic historyExpand

Paleoseismology along the 1980 surface rupture of the Irpinia Fault: Implications for earthquake recurrence in the southern Apennines, Italy
The Irpinia fault was the source of the Ms 6.9 1980 Irpinia earthquake and produced the first unequivocal historical surface faulting in Italy. Trenching of the 1980 fault scarp at Piano di Pecore, aExpand

Paleoearthquakes and slip rates of the North Tabriz Fault, NW Iran: preliminary results
The North Tabriz Fault is a major seismogenic fault in NW Iran. The last damaging earthquakes on this fault occurred in 1721, rupturing the southeastern fault segment, and in 1780, rupturing theExpand

Slip Rates of The Aigion and Eliki Faults From Uplifted Marine Terraces, Corinth Gulf, Greece
Along the southern coast of the Gulf of Corinth, important coastal uplift is illustrated by raised Late-Pleistocene marine platforms. Terrace remnants preserved on the footwall of the Aigion andExpand

Paleoseismicity of the 1981 Corinth earthquake fault: Seismic contribution to extensional strain in central Greece and implications for seismic hazard
We present paleoseismological trenching results for the active Skinos Fault, which ruptured the surface on the Alkyonides Gulf basin margin in the 1981 Gulf of Corinth earthquake sequence. ThreeExpand

Recent history of the Eastern Eliki Fault, Gulf of Corinth: geomorphology, palaeoseismology and impact on palaeoenvironments
SUMMARY The Eliki fault system dominates the landscape of the southwestern shore of the Gulf of Corinth, where rapid extension rates result in frequent earthquakes. These include an event in 373 BCExpand

Faulting mechanism and complexity of the November 23, 1980, Campania-Lucania Earthquake, inferred from surface observations
The lack of a well-recognized relation between large earthquakes and their surface effects in Italy has motivated the detailed reconstruction of the surface expression of the 1980 Campania-LucaniaExpand

The Aigion-Neos Erineos coastal normal fault system (western Corinth Gulf Rift, Greece) : Geomorphological signature, recent earthquake history, and evolution
[1] At the westernmost part of the Corinth Rift (Greece), an area of rapid extension and active normal faulting, geomorphological observations reveal the existence and geometry of an active NW-SEExpand
