Environmental vulnerability from capable faults along the extensional setting of the Apennines – Tyrrhenian Margin

Please note that the job is no longer active!

The main seismic sources of the Tyrrhenian Margin of the Apennines have been identified with good reliability already during the Nuclear Siting Program conducted by ENEA – ENEL in the 70s e 80s.

The investigations of the last 3 decades allowed to improve significantly our knowledge on the active tectonics of the this region.

The seismic sequence occurred on April 2009 eventually provided invaluable constraints for the structural model and seismic landscape of the study region.

The available data strongly suggest that the Apennines are exposed to a relevant level of ground rupture hazard; less defined is the level of ground rupture hazard associated with Quaternary tectonic structures in the coastal sector of Central Italy.

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
