Earthquakes and normal faults in central Italy

Amatrice, Italy, 2017: The centre of the country one year after the earthquake

  • Upper Lecture Theatre, Sherwell Centre

Save event

The School of Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences organises a regular series of research seminars throughout the academic year to which everyone is welcome to attend. Speakers - both external and internal to the University - will talk on topics related to all aspects of Earth Sciences.

Today's speaker is Dr Zoe Mildon from the University of Plymouth.
Damaging earthquakes occur in central Italy, including the 2009 L’Aquila and the 2016 Amatrice earthquakes. Using a combination of fieldwork, stress modelling and cosmogenic dating, Zoe wants to understand how the normal faults in the region interact together and generate earthquakes to understand the seismic hazard.
