Abstract The Carpathian Mountainsarc is the most seismically active area in Central Europe. Analysis of the seismicity of entire Carpathian arc requires data from each of the particular catalogues which have to be properly and uniformly entered, standardized and merged. For our study we first had to prepare a database of seismic events (ML ≥ 1.6) compiled from the data of earthquakes taken from individual national seismic networks as well as data from international seismic centers. However, a… Expand

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 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
