Study of the active deformation between the Campania Plain and the Apennines based on geological, geomorphological and seismological data
The project represents a multidisciplinary study along a NE-SW trending transect in northern Campania region between the Tyrrhenian margin and the Apennines. The transect broadly includes the submerged shelf, the volcanic areas, the Campania Plain, the margin between the chain and the plain, and the axis of the mountain belt.
My project aims at better defining geometry and kinematics connected to major tectonic processes, and at characterizing the structural transition between the western sector, characterized by low-seismicity rate, ~N-S trending extension, and the chain, dominated by high seismic rate and NE-SW trending extension. I intend also investigate major seismogenic structures in the analysed part of the chain.
