  • The study area is located close to the principal thrust of the Gran Sasso d’Italia massif, whose landforms are mainly controlled by geological, structural and glacial processes. In fact, important morphostructures have been identified as being
  • linked to the direct action of tectonics at the macro-scale level, as in the case of the orientation of the principal valleys. Tectonics have also promoted the spread of gravitational phenomena. The glacial footprint is evident in the numerous inactive

  • of the epicenters of the events are very close to the Main Central Thrust (MCT), in between Munsiari Thrust (MT) and Berinag Thrust (BT). The neotectonic investigations were carried out in the major river valleys of the Kumaun Himalaya. From the investigations some
  • new faults are identified on the basis of geomorphological signatures. The morphotectonic development has been related to the prevalent seismicity of the region. It is evident that the major thrust and faults of the region are seismically as well
  • as neotectonically active in some segments. From the ongoing seismic and neotectonic movements it is clear that some of the faults and thrusts are active at present.

  • Field studies coupled with interpretation of topographic maps resulted in the identification and delineation of a large number of trending active faults which post-date the NW-SE oriented thrust system and shear zones. Recent movement
  • on the northerly-trending faults has caused not only pronounced deflection of rivers and streams but also damage to recently constructed river bridges and subsidence of roads. Movements along faults and thrusts are also responsible for the abrupt rise of mountain

  • The purpose of this work is the reconstruction of the crustal tectono-stratigraphic setting of the area extending from the Tyrrhenian coast to the M. Cetona thrust. The results obtained are very important and decisely innovative as regard
  • Debris entrainment by basal freeze-on and thrusting during the 1995-1998 surge of Kuannersuit Glacier on Disko Island, west Greenland
  • Kuannersuit Glacier, a valley glacier on Disko Island, experienced a major surge from 1995 to 1998. The aim of this study is to describe the tectonic evolution of large englacial thrusts and the processes of basal ice formation using a multiproxy
  • approach including structural glaciology, stable isotope composition (δ18O and δD), sedimentology and ground-penetrating radar. The AA. argue that the major debris layers that can be traced in the terminal zone represent englacial thrusts that were formed
