Abstract We carried out new geological, morphotectonic, geophysical and paleoseismological investigations on the Meduno Thrust that belongs to the Pliocene-Quaternary front of the eastern Southern Alps in Friuli (NE Italy). The study area is located in the Carnic Prealps, where a series of alluvial terraces, linked to both climatic and tectonic pul...

The Matese area is located at the junction between Central and Southern Apennines. GPS data show NE-SW active extension with velocities across the area > 2 mm/yr. The area is characterized by a high seismicity and several seismic sequences were recorded even in recent times (1997-98 M<4.2, 2001 M<3.6, 2013-14 Ml 4.9, 2016 Mw 4.4). Despite the high...

By matching interpretation of seismic profiles of the Friuli pre-Alpin area with the surficial data collected during the detailed geological survey (CARG-FVG project), we have recontructed the deep arrangement of the Susans-Tricesimo thrust (which is considered the seismogenic source of the 6 May 1976 earthquake, Mw 6.45). The structural framework...

We investigated the eastern corner of northeastern Italy, where a system of NW–SE-trending dex- tral strike-slip faults of western Slovenia intersects the south- verging fold and thrust belt of the eastern Southern Alps. The area suffered the largest earthquakes of the region, among which are the 1511 (Mw 6.3) event and the two major shocks of the...

In May 2012, two earthquakes (Mw 6.1 and 5.9) affected the Po Plain, Italy. The strongest shock produced extensive secondary effects associated with liquefaction phenomena. Few weeks after the earthquakes, an exploratory trench was excavated across a levee of the palaeo-Reno reach, where a system of aligned ground ruptures was observed. The investi...

The study refers to the active slope deformation detected by GPS and tiltmeter stations in the Cansiglio karstic plateau located in the western Carnic Prealps (NE Italy). The observed transient deformation clearly correlates with the rainfall, so that the southernmost border of the Plateau reacts instantly to heavy rains displaying a “back and fort...

On the basis of geological mapping and mesostructural analysis, the structural framework of the Bernadia carbonate massif (southern Julian Prealps) was pointed out. It deals with a tectonic building linked to the superposition between two tectonic systems: the Paleogene External Dinaric Chain and the Neogene-Quaternary Southalpine one. During Mesoz...

The seismicity collected during the sequence that struck Friuli in 1976 and 1977 has been compared with that collected by the regional seismometric network in the following years (1977-1999). A standard approach was used to elaborate the seismological data recorded during the first year of the seismic sequence. A good quality data set of 479 hypoce...

The Funes Basin is an intermontane basin located in the northern Dolomites. At present, because of Neoalpine compressional tectonics, it is exposed for 2 km in a NE-SW direction and for about 3 km in an E-W direction. The basin is filled by up to 500 m thickness of andesitic lavas, which roughly thin eastwards and are replaced by up to 200 m of pyr...

On the 12th April 1998, a wide area in the middle valley of the Soča/Isonzo River near Bovec (NW Slovenia) was affected by an earthquake of MD = 5.6. It was followed by a long seismic sequence from which the 40 aftershocks, with MD ≥ 3.0 recorded until the 30th June 1998, have been analysed.

The area belongs to the Neogene S-vergent thrust-beit of the Eastern Southern Alps, characterised by NNW-SSE crustal shortening, developing mostly in the cover. All shocks occured at shallow crustal level (5.3-10 km in depth)...
