The 11/5/2011 Lorca, Spain earthquake (Mw$$\,=\,$$=5.2) and related seismicity produced extensive damage in the town of Lorca and vicinity. During these earthquakes, evidence of rotations and permanent deformations in structures were observed. To analyze these aspects and study the source properties from the near-field, the displacement time histories were obtained including the static component at Lorca station. Displacement time histories were computed by an appropriate double time… 

The 2011 Mw 5.2 Lorca earthquake as a case study to investigate the ground motion variability related to the source model

Near-field recordings are very sensitive to the spatiotemporal details of the rupture process while far-field signals show the signature of the overall “point-source” earthquake mechanism. Near- and

Surface dynamic deformation estimates from local seismicity: the Itoiz reservoir, Spain

We analyze the ground motion time histories due to the local seismicity near the Itoiz reservoir to estimate the near-source, surface 3D displacement gradients and dynamic deformations. The seismic

Surface Dynamic Deformation Estimates From Seismicity Near the Itoiz Reservoir, Northern Spain

We analyzed the ground motion time histories due to the local seismicity near the Itoiz reservoir, in order to estimate the surface 3D displacement-gradients and dynamic deformations. The seismic

Recorded Ground Motion and Estimated Soil Amplification for the 11 May 2011 Lorca Earthquake

On 11 May 2011 an earthquake of magnitude 5.2 (M w ) hit the Murcia region of Spain causing significant damage to buildings in the town of Lorca. Accelerograms were recorded by stations of the

Simulation of near-fault ground strains and rotations from actual strike-slip earthquakes: case studies of the 2004 Mw 6.0 Parkfield, the 1979 Mw 6.5 Imperial Valley and the 1999 Mw 7.5 Izmit earthquakes

Previous studies have demonstrated that finite-fault simulations of actual or hypothetical earthquakes using deterministic, physics-based simulation techniques constitute an effective tool for

Resolution of rupture directivity in weak events: 1‐D versus 2‐D source parameterizations for the 2011, Mw 4.6 and 5.2 Lorca earthquakes, Spain

Resolving robust source parameters of small‐moderate magnitude earthquakes is still a challenge in seismology. We infer directivity from apparent source time functions (ASTFs) at regional distance

Significance of directivity effects during the 2011 Lorca earthquake in Spain

The May 11th 2011, Lorca earthquake in Southeastern Spain was a moderate magnitude event (Mw 5.1) yet it caused nine fatalities, more than 300 injuries and more than 462 million euros in economic

Reassessment of intensity estimates from vulnerability and damage distributions: the 2011 Lorca earthquake

This paper presents a reassessment of the seismic intensity estimated for the 2011 Lorca (southeastern Spain) earthquake based on detailed vulnerability data and its comparison with the observed

Models for reproducing the damage scenario of the Lorca earthquake

A damage scenario modelling is developed and compared with the damage distribution observed after the 2011 Lorca earthquake. The strong ground motion models considered include five modern ground
