Dear Colleagues,

The SGI-SIMP (Società Geologica Italiana – Società Italiana di Mineralogia e Petrologia) national meeting entitled “Geosciences for a sustainable future” will take place in Turin from 19 to 21 September 2022. We would like to draw your attention and invite you to submit an abstract to the session: P50 Towards modern concepts in seismotectonic-model definition and imaging: multidisciplinary and multiscale approaches in different tectonic settings


Seismotectonic studies are key for seismic hazard assessment in tectonically and volcano-tectonically active regions. Defining a seismotectonic model is challenging since sometimes several conditions (e.g., paucity of geological- and surface deformation data) can hamper the accurate definition of active faults geometry, kinematics, and of associated stress- and deformation fields. In addition, areas subjected to these studies are often characterized by low-level seismicity. Nowadays, advances in technology and scientific computing, allow the acquisition of large amounts of geological data even in formerly unreachable places, make geophysical field data more effective and data processing less demanding, allow enhancing seismic catalogues in areas with low-level seismicity, and provide information from geophysical, geodetic, or remote-sensing analysis. Therefore, improvements in quality data and easier dataset integrations are more and more attainable, and seismotectonic model definition/imaging is increasingly realistic and reliable. This session aims at focussing on seismotectonic models, data, and aspects that contribute to defining them and welcomes contributions on: active faults studies, including multiscale and multidisciplinary geophysical approaches; dataset integration for faults imaging and tectonic-setting definition; high-quality seismological data, field-and remotely-collected data for qualitative and quantitative analysis; numerical and analogue modelling of faulting processes; innovative methodologies for data collection and analysis.
