Plio-Quaternary tectonic evolution of the Northern Apennines thrust fronts (Bologna-Ferrara section, Italy) : seismotectonic implications

Auteur :
TOSCANI, G.

Description :
The AA. used geological, structural and morphotectonic data to draw a N-S-striking section between Bologna and Ferrara, aimed at analyzing whether and how the deformation is partitioned among the frontal thrusts of the Northern Apennines and identifying the potential sources of damaging earthquakes. The AA. pointed out active anticlines based on the correspondence among drainage anomalies, historical seismicity and buried ramps. They also analyzed the evolution of the Plio-Quaternary deformation by modeling in a sandbox the geometry, kinematics and growth patterns of the thrust fronts. - (NF)
