Defining a model of 3D seismogenic sources for Seismic Hazard Assessment applications: The case of central Apennines (Italy)
Geology-based methods for Probabilistic Seismic Hazard Assessment (PSHA) have been developing in Italy. These methods require information on the geometric, kinematic and energetic parameters of the
Layered Seismogenic Source Model and Probabilistic Seismic-Hazard Analyses in Central Italy
We defined a seismogenic model for central Italy based on three layers of sources and computed the relative seismic-hazard maps. One layer is constituted by individual structures liable to generate
Architecture and seismotectonics of a regional low‐angle normal fault zone in central Italy
Information from surface geology, subsurface geology (boreholes, seismic reflection, and refraction profiles), and seismicity are used to depict the geometry and the possible seismogenic role of the
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.
Is there a mantle plume below Italy
Some of the most diverse igneous rocks found on Earth occur along the length of Italy and in many of the islands in the southeastern Tyrrhenian Sea, all the result of Cenozoic magmatism. Magmas
Seismotectonic zoning in east-central Italy deduced from an analysis of the Neogene to present deformations and related stress fields
This paper concerns the space-time evolution of the late Miocene to present contractional and extensional deformations within east-central Italy, with an analysis of the pattern and orientation of
Active thrusting as a possible seismogenic source in Sicily (Southern Italy): Some insights from integrated structural–kinematic and seismological data
Abstract This paper proposes a new seismogenic interpretation of mainland and central-southern Sicily, based on an integrated structural–kinematic–seismological approach. Through analysis of
The tyrrhenian-apennines system: structural setting and seismotectogenesis
Abstract The available geological, geophysical and seismological data of the Tyrrhenian-Apennines system are briefly reviewed and synthesized in a number of sketch maps. Integrating and comparing
Seismogenesis in Central Apennines, Italy: an integrated analysis of minor earthquake sequences and structural data in the Amatrice-Campotosto area
We present a seismotectonic study of the Amatrice-Campotosto area (Central Italy) based on an integrated analysis of minor earthquake sequences, geological data and crustal rheology. The area has
A structural model for active extension in Central Italy
This work presents a structural model for earthquake faulting in the Umbria-Marche Apennines (Central Italy). The model is derived by an integrated analysis of geological, geophysical and
