Seismogenic fault characterization through analogue models

Please note that the job is no longer active!

The research aims at a better knowledge of the earthquakes as a physical phenomenon through their reproduction at a reduced and observable scale (analogue models):

The research activity will concern:

• Set up and analysis of Analogue Models at different scales to reproduce both fossil and active geological processes.

• Elaboration of data acquired during the experimental phases and production of digital models allowing the data sharing.

• Comparison between experimentall results and other data coming from investigations in the study areas (field data, seismological and geodetic data)

• Contribution in updating of national databeses(es. DISS dell’INGV), througha better definition of the geometries, kinematics and surface effetcts of the studied faults.

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!
