Fault2SHA Learning Series – Palaeoseismic studies in hazard modelling by Francesca Cinti
22/02/2021 @ 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Palaeoseismic studies in hazard modelling
Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia, Sezione di Roma 1,
Monday 22nd February 2021, 15:00 Central European Time
Among the geologic data, the trenching records of paleoearthquakes represent an important input for the development of seismic hazard evaluations and, specifically, for the characterization of fault rupture behavior in time. In this lecture I will introduce 1. the basic concept of paleoseismology, the evaluation methods and variability of fault parameters, 2. a paleoearthquake database as input for producing rupture scenarios, explore fault behavior and earthquake recurrence in Central Apennines.
