Compressional velocity structure and anisotropy in the uppermost mantle beneath Italy and surrounding regions
Travel times of about 39,000 Pn arrivals recorded from regional earthquakes by the Italian Telemetered Seismic Network and by stations of nearby countries are inverted to image lateral variations ofExpand

An active margin across the Adriatic Sea (central Mediterranean Sea)
Abstract New seismological and structural data from the central Adriatic—Gargano promontory area demonstrate that the current models of an aseismic and slightly deformed Adriatic block have to beExpand

Deep crustal roots beneath the northern Apennines inferred from teleseismic receiver functions
Abstract Teleseismic waveforms recorded by a regional array crossing the northern Italian peninsula and northern Corsica are analyzed using the receiver function technique, to determine theExpand

Shear wave attenuation in the lithosphere beneath Italy and surrounding regions: Tectonic implications
More than 700 waveforms produced by 51 shallow earthquakes and recorded at regional distances (250–1400 km) by the Italian seismic network have been analyzed to characterize the amplitude andExpand

Azimuth‐dependent amplification of weak and strong ground motions within a fault zone (Nocera Umbra, central Italy)
[1] During three moderate-magnitude earthquakes occurred in September-October 1997 in the central Apennines, Italy, accelerations larger than 0.5 g were recorded in the town of Nocera Umbra, 10 to 15Expand

Evidence of crustal thickening beneath the central Apennines (Italy) from teleseismic receiver functions
Abstract We computed receiver functions of teleseismic events that occurred within a distance of 35–90° and were recorded in central Italy by 15 temporary stations and 1 permanent station. In theExpand

Foreland deformational pattern in the Southern Adriatic Sea
Two major deformation belts occur in the portion of the Adriatic Sea offshore the Gargano Promontory. Although these two belts display similar characters on seismic profiles, they are different inExpand
