APPLICATION OF QUATERNARY STUDIES FOR THE ASSESSMENT OF ACTIVE AND CAPABLE FAULTS IN THE CENTRAL APENNINES: IMPLICATIONS FOR MICROZONATION AND SEISMOTECTONIC ANALYSES
Main Article Content
The study of the Quaternary evolution of defined areas for the recognition and characterization of active and capable faults is essential for an adequate and aware land use planning and management. Here, we present two case studies in the Abruzzi Apennines, one in the Celano area, where focused geological studies allowed us to rule out the presence of an active and capable fault in a site selected for the realization of a primary school, and one in the Bagno area, where an active and capable fault has been first detected and should be included in revised seismic microzonation studies.
