Abstract The North-Andean subduction zone generates recurrent tsunamigenic earthquakes. The seismicity is usually considered to be segmented because of different specific morphological features of the Nazca Plate driving the subduction motion. Most of the recent powerful earthquakes in the margin were located in its northern part. To the south, the region of the Gulf of Guayaquil, only (undocumented) three events in 1901, 1933 and 1953 were possibly powerful and tsunamigenic. Here we are… 

Characterization of seismogenic crustal faults in the Gulf of Guayaquil, Ecuador

Few moderate-to-strong earthquakes associated with active and capable geological faults have been documented for the southern coastal region of Ecuador. The seismic record of Ecuador initiates with

Population and building vulnerability assessment by possible worst-case tsunami scenarios in Salinas, Ecuador

Ecuador has been prone to experience earthquakes and tsunamis linked to events in the subduction zone between the Nazca and the South American plates. The main objective of this investigation was to

Active tectonics of Peru: Heterogeneous interseismic coupling along the Nazca megathrust, rigid motion of the Peruvian Sliver, and Subandean shortening accommodation

Over 100 GPS sites measured in 2008–2013 in Peru provide new insights into the present‐day crustal deformation of the 2200 km long Peruvian margin. This margin is squeezed between the eastward

Connection between high pore-fluid pressure and frictional instability at tsunamigenic plate boundary fault of 2011 Tohoku-Oki earthquake

The 2011 Tohoku-Oki earthquake (M 9.0) rupture propagated along a shallow plate boundary thrust fault (i.e. decollement) to the trench, displaced the seafloor, and triggered a devastating tsunami.

Number 3 2021 ! THE PROPOSED DESIGN OF A SMART PARKING AREA AS A MULTIPLE USE BUILDING FOR THE EVENTUAL VERTICAL EVACUATION IN CASE OF TSUNAMI IMPACTS IN SALINAS , ECUADOR 146

Ecuador is a country with high seismic risk, due to its proximity to the Pacific Ring of Fire. Hereby, strong seismic events are able to occur generating tsunamis, of which an impact may be imminent

Georesources as an Alternative for Sustainable Development in COVID-19 Times—A Study Case in Ecuador

Georesources comprise spaces of relevant geological value with the potential to be used and managed as a resource. Therefore, georesources are an essential development factor in the world, mainly

Tsunami damage estimation in Esmeraldas, Ecuador using fragility functions

The current study investigated the probable impact from a tsunami to a populated area located along the northwest ecuadorian coast, specifically in the key oil-industrial city of esmeraldas. a

POTENTIAL OF TSUNAMI GENERATION ALONG THE COLOMBIA/ECUADOR SUBDUCTION MARGIN AND THE DOLORES-GUAYAQUIL MEGA-THRUST

The Colombia/Ecuador subduction zone is a region where high seismic stress is presently accumulating. Statistical probability studies and GPS measurements of crustal deformation indicate that the

The tsunami signature on a submerged promontory: the case study of the Atacames Promontory, Ecuador

Shelf promontories exhibit very specific bathymetric features with regards to tsunamis. Because of their submerged cape morphology, a potential tsunami generated seawards of the promontory will

Interseismic coupling and seismic potential along the Central Andes subduction zone

We use about two decades of geodetic measurements to characterize interseismic strain build up along the Central Andes subduction zone from Lima, Peru, to Antofagasta, Chile. These measurements are

VARIABLE RUPTURE MODE OF THE SUBDUCTION ZONE ALONG THE ECUADOR-COLOMBIA COAST

Three large earthquakes occurred within the rupture zone of the 1906 Colombia-Ecuador earthquake (M_W = 8.8): in 1942 (M_S = 7.9); 1958 (MS = 7.8); and 1979 (M_S = 7.7). We compared the size and

It has long been recognized that the locations and geometries of large subduction zone thrust earthquakes are influenced by features on the subducting plate (Mogi 1969; Vogt et al. 1976; Kelleher and
