Fault-plane solutions from moment-tensor inversion and preliminary Coulomb stress analysis for the Emilia Plain

Angela Saraò, Laura Peruzza


We investigate the seismicity occurred in the Po area, in the period July 2011-June 1012, by means of moment tensor and we use our set of revised focal mechanisms - computed for M> 3.7 earthquakes - to evaluate Coulomb elastic stress changes in order to detect potential intermediate-distance faults interaction, and the main features of this complex structural system.
