Active normal faulting along the Mt. Morrone south-western slopes (central Apennines, Italy)
In the present work we analyse one of the active normal faults affecting the central Apennines, i.e. the Mt. Morrone normal fault system. This tectonic structure, which comprises two parallel, NW-SEExpand

Coseismic effects of the 2016 Amatrice seismic sequence: first geological results.
Since the beginning of the ongoing Amatrice seismic sequence on August 24, 2016, initiated by a Mw 6.0 normal faulting earthquake, the EMERGEO Working Group (an INGV team devoted to earthquakeExpand

The Paganica Fault and Surface Coseismic Ruptures Caused by the 6 April 2009 Earthquake (L'Aquila, Central Italy)
On 6 April 2009, at 01:32 GMT, an Mw 6.3 seismic event hit the central Apennines, severely damaging the town of L'Aquila and dozens of neighboring villages and resulting in approximately 300Expand

Site effects “on the rock”: the case of Castelvecchio Subequo (L’Aquila, central Italy)
The April 6, 2009 L’Aquila earthquake was responsible for an “anomalous”, relatively high degree of damage (i.e. Is 7 MCS scale) at Castelvecchio Subequo (CS). Indeed, the village is located atExpand

Coseismic deformation pattern of the Emilia 2012 seismic sequence imaged by Radarsat-1 interferometry
On May 20 and 29, 2012, two earthquakes of magnitudes 5.9 and 5.8 (Mw), respectively, and their aftershock sequences hit the central Po Plain (Italy), about 40 km north of Bologna. More than 2,000Expand

Historical earthquakes and variable kinematic behaviour of the 2009 L'Aquila seismic event (central Italy) causative fault, revealed by paleoseismological investigations
Abstract Paleoseismological investigations has been carried out along the causative fault of the Mw 6.1 2009 L'Aquila earthquake. We dug three trenches in two different sites on the Paganica fault toExpand

Active faulting, 3-D geological architecture and Plio-Quaternary structural evolution of extensional basins in the central Apennine chain, Italy
Abstract. The general basin and range Apennine topographic characteristic is generally attributed to the presently active normal fault systems, whose long-term activity (throughout the Quaternary) isExpand

Coseismic liquefaction phenomenon analysis by COSMO-SkyMed: 2012 Emilia (Italy) earthquake
We exploited the capability of the differential synthetic aperture radar interferometry (DInSAR) technique to detect soil liquefactions and estimate their surface displacements, as well as to quantify the local subsidence related to these phenomena. Expand
