Geo-database compilation for seismo-tectonic investigations

  Seismo-tectonic modelling used for seismic hazard and risk assessments requires a complete comprehension of the geology, tectonics, palaeo-seismology, regional geophysical anomalies, historical and instrumental seismicity, and other neo-tectonic phenomena like relative plate motions and current tectonic plate stresses. This paper shows progress made in compiling available geospatial data relevant for this kind of modelling […]
