DISS version 3.0.1

This version of the Database contains 107 Individual Seismogenic Sources and 67 Seismogenic Areas, covering the whole Italian territory and portions of all adjacent countries and seas. Both categories of sources are based on geological/geophysical data. This version also incorporates:
  • an in-depth revision of the seismogenic sources in the Northeastern quadrant of Italy, mainly based on the outcomes of the GNDT project (2000-2004) "Damage scenarios in the Veneto-Friuli area";
  • a novel view of the seismogenic processes in Southern Italy, based on the outcomes of the project "Diagnostica e salvaguardia di manufatti architettonici con particolare riferimento agli effetti derivanti da eventi sismici ed altre calamità naturali", funded by the Italian Ministry for Education, University and Research (2002-2005);
  • an update of the seismogenic sources in the coastal Marche region based on the outcomes of a Research Grant from Regione Marche (2003-2005);
  • an improved description of the seismogenic sources in the Northern Tuscany region based on the outcomes of a Research Grant from Regione Toscana (2003-2004).

This version also includes:
  • over 2,000 selected references to scientific literature specifically pertinent to the identified seismogenic sources;
  • new source-specific pictures selected from the literature, such as geological maps, cross-sections, and photographs.

This version of the Database was primarily developed for use among the scientists who participate in the project INGV-DPC S2 "Valutazione del potenziale sismogenetico e probabilità dei forti terremoti in Italia" (Assessment of the seismogenic potential and probability of large earthquakes in Italy) - as a first contribution of UR1.1 (Task 1) - who are all informed on all its possible flaws and limitations. All other users are therefore cautioned in using version 3.0.1 in any application.
