DISS version 3.0.4

This version of the Database contains 119 Individual Seismogenic Sources and 92 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:

  • a totally new set of macroseismic sources based on DBMI04, the latest release of the database of historical earthquake felt reports used for compiling CPTI04, the Italian Parametric Earthquake Catalogue  [Stucchi et al. (2007); http://emidius.mi.ingv.it/DBMI04/];
  • several updated sources and a few new sources based on the outcomes of the project"S2 - Valutazione del potenziale sismogenetico e probabilità dei forti terremoti in Italia" (Assessment of the seismogenic potential and probability of large earthquakes in Italy), funded in the framework of the INGV-DPC multiannual agreement.

This version also includes:

  • over 2,100 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.

A detailed illustration about the latest updates of DISS 3.0.4 is available here.

This version of the Database was primarily developed for use among the scientists who participated 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 the contribution of UR1.1 (Task 1) to the project - who are all informed on  its possible flaws and limitations. All other users are therefore cautioned in using version 3.0.4 in any application.

Thematic maps showing the content of the database compared with relevant geophysical data are available here.
A map of slip rates of DISS faults obtained through finite element modeling is available here.
Simulations of tsunami scenarios using DISS as input data are available here.
