Quaternary tectonic activity of the Murge area (Apulian foreland -Southern Italy)

P. Pieri, V. Festa, M. Moretti, M. Tropeano


Integration of structural, stratigraphical, and sedimentological data and instrumental records of some recent low-energy seismic events in the Murge area allow us to suggest a new seismotectonic picture of this region, generally considered an aseismic and stable sector of the Apulian foreland.
