What is DISS?

DISS is a georeferenced repository of tectonic, fault, and paleoseismological information expressly devoted, but not limited, to potential applications in the assessment of seismic hazard at regional and national scale.

  • it represents faults in 3D;
  • all its records are fully parameterized;
  • it tends to completeness.

The core objects of DISS are:


The DISS Working Group

The DISS Working Group is formed by INGV scientists involved in research programmes on geologic data collection, active tectonics modeling, and hazard analyses (in alphabetical order):



The "Database of Individual Seismogenic Sources" was conceived in the late '90s by a group of scientists of Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia. The Database has since been greatly improved through successive releases.
