Article
Full-text available
The Padul-Nigüelas Fault Zone (PNFZ) is situated at the south-western mountain front of the Sierra Nevada (southern Spain) in the Internal Zone of the Betic Cordilleras and belongs to a NW-SE trending system of normal faults dipping SW. The PNFZ constitutes a major tectonic and lithological boundary in the Betics, and separates the metamorphic unit...

Lake Ohrid (between FYR of Macedonia and Albania), situated in an active tectonic region of the Balkanides, is characterized by N — S trending active faults. To reconstruct the Holocene shoreline evolution we investigated the coastline using sediment cores and geophysical methods to image sedimentary and tectonic structures. We revealed areas of di...

This paper contributes to the understanding of palaeoseismology in slowly deforming regions by demonstrating the interpretation of soft-sediment deformation to be a valuable tool in identifying palaeoseismicity where the present-day seismicity is low and the geomorphology initially does not indicate active tectonics by the presence of fault scarps,...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The Hei River Basin (catchment area of c. 130,000 km2) is situated at the transition between the northern margin of the Tibetan Plateau and the southern slopes of Gobi-Tien-Shan. As part of the northwestern Chinese deserts, the Ejina Basin (Gaxun Nur Basin) constitutes the endorheic erosion base of the drainage system. The basin – hosting the secon...

Past earthquakes leave various types of evidence on the Earth’s surface. Seismic waves in water-saturated sediments lead to the deformation of original bedding, unconformities and event layers. The term "seismite" was introduced to describe the various co-seismic effects of earthquakes on sediments that range from principally brittle deformation (e...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
In the last 4 years, since the successful launch of our regular meetings on Earthquake Geology and Paleoseismology in Baelo Claudia (Spain) in 2009, and the following two meetings in Corinth (Greece) in 2011, and last year, the first meeting outside Europe in Morelia (Mexico) in 2012, we are very happy to welcome all of you in Aachen, Germany. The...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The endorheic Gaxun Nur Basin (GNB, also Ejina Basin, Hei river Basin, Ruoshui Basin) in the eastern Gobi desert is situated between the northern Tibetan Plateau and the Gobi Altai mountains. Recent fault activity is concentrated on the sinistral Altyn Tagh Fault, its eastern continuations and the Qilian Shan frontal thrust in the south, which are...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The Gaxun Nur Basin (GNB, also Ejina Basin, Hei River Basin, Ruoshui Basin) north of the Tibetan Plateau and the Hexi Corridor is an endorheic basin bounded by the Bei Shan ranges in the west, the Gobi Altai mountains in the north and the Badain Jaran sand desert in the east. The basin is fed from the south by the braided drainage system of the Hei...
Article
Full-text available
One of the most destructive earthquakes on the Iberian Peninsula (Ms 6.7) occurred in 1884 along the Ventas de Zafarraya Fault (VZF, southern Spain). New paleoseismological data based on trenching and radiometric dating allow the faulting history in the last 10 ky to be characterized. Four major events (Ms around 6.5 ± 0.5) are revealed, which are...
Article
Full-text available
The Padul- Nigüelas Fault Zone (PNFZ) is situated at the south-western mountain front of the Sierra Nevada (Spain) in an extensive regime and belongs to the internal zone of the Betic Cordilleras. The aim of this study is a collection of new evidence for neotectonic activity of the fault zone with classical geological field work and modern geophysi...
