VRANCEA99—the crustal structure beneath the southeastern Carpathians and the Moesian Platform from a seismic refraction profile in Romania
The VRANCEA99 seismic refraction experiment is part of an international and multidisciplinary project to study the intermediate depth earthquakes of the Eastern Carpathians in Romania. As part of theExpand

Seismic crustal structure between the Transylvanian Basin and the Black Sea, Romania
Abstract In order to study the lithospheric structure in Romania a 450 km long WNW–ESE trending seismic refraction project was carried out in August/September 2001. It runs from the TransylvanianExpand

PHYSICAL AND DYNAMIC PROPERTIES OF THE SHALLOW SEDIMENTARY ROCKS IN THE BUCHAREST METROPOLITAN AREA
New seismic measurements are performed in the Bucharest area with the purpose of defining better the physical and dynamic properties of the shallow sedimentary rocks. Down-hole seismic measurementsExpand

Crustal properties from S-wave and gravity data along a seismic refraction profile in Romania
VRANCEA'99 is a seismic refraction line that was carried out in 1999 to investigate the deep structure and physical properties of the upper lithosphere of the southeastern Carpathians and itsExpand

Crustal constraints on the origin of mantle seismicity in the Vrancea Zone, Romania: The case for active continental lithospheric delamination
Abstract The Vrancea zone of Romania constitutes one of the most active seismic zones in Europe, where intermediate-depth (70–200 km) earthquakes of magnitude in excess of M w  = 7.0 occur withExpand

Mantle earthquakes in the absence of subduction? Continental delamination in the Romanian Carpathians
The Vrancea seismogenic zone of Romania is a steeply NW-dipping volume (30 × 70 × 200 km) of intermediate-depth seismicity in the upper mantle beneath the bend zone of the Eastern Carpathians. It isExpand

CRUSTAL SEISMICITY AND ACTIVE FAULT SYSTEMS IN ROMANIA
The most significant seismicity in Romania is located in a relatively small area – the Vrancea seismogenic zone, where 2–3 intermediate depth strong earthquakes (Mw > 7.0) occur in a century.Expand

Dynamic properties of the Quaternary sedimentary rocks and their influence on seismic site effects. Case study in Bucharest City, Romania
Bucharest is one of the cities most affected by earthquakes in Europe. Situated at 150–170 km distance from Vrancea epicentral zone, Bucharest had suffered many damages due to high energy VranceaExpand

CRUSTAL MODELS IN ROMANIA - I. MOESIAN PLATFORM
A set of crustal data collected in the last decades across the Moesian platform are processed in order to derive a crustal model. New crustal model comprises maps with depths to the top of lowerExpand
