Seismicity, seismotectonics and seismic risk of the Ibero-Maghrebian region. Instituto Geográfico Nacional, Madrid. Monografia Num. . Seismicity in the Eastern Tellian Atlas of Algeria is active of moderate to low magnitude. The direct identification of active fault is often a difficult task. In fact, in this region, despite the intense seismicity, only the Constantine earthquake of 27 October, (M s = ) and the Kherrata earthquake of 17 February, (M s = ), have generated surface ruptures.

IMERNET: Ibero-maghrebian network for the seismic hazard reduction () Earthquakes do not recognize borders and the great collisions that take place in the ibero-maghrebian region, which includes Algeria, Morocco, Portugal, Spain and Tunisia, can affect some of these countries.

      In the present study, seismicity parameters (seismic activity, β‐value, and maximum regional magnitude) of the Iranian plateau are computed for sites equally distributed all over the country on a grid of 1×1 decimal most complete available catalog including historical and instrumental earthquakes of the plateau from B.C. to A.D. is first prepared from numerous resources. The East Tennessee seismic zone in the southern Appalachians is an ~km-wide, km-long region of seismicity that extends from NE Alabama and NW Georgia to NE of Knoxville, Tennessee. It is the second most active seismic zone east of the U.S. Rocky Mountains.

A study of the seismotectonics of the Ibero-Maghrebian region is presented as deduced from main geological features, seismicity and focal mechanism data.

The hypocentral distribution of shallow, intermediate-depth and deep earthquakes is analyzed. A study of the seismotectonics of the Ibero-Maghrebian region is presented as deduced from main geological features, seismicity and focal mechanism data.

Seismotectonics is a term generally applied to the study of earthquake occurrence and characteristics and its relation to the tectonics of a particular region and the overall dynamics of the Earth’s crust. The word seismotectonics was first used by Sieberg in as the title of a world map in which seismic and.

A key question in the use of historical seismicity for seismic hazard assessments is given by the completeness of the earthquake catalogue, usually based on statistical analyses (Stepp, ).Following the procedure proposed by Tinti and Mulargia () we plotted the cumulative number of earthquakes against time and possible completeness intervals were determined by looking at the slope.

Introduction. Classically, a quantitative approach to the seismicity analysis is made through the seismic parameters a and b involved in the Gutenberg–Richter magnitude–frequency relationship. As is well known, the b-value expresses the existing proportion between weak and strong events, and an increase in this value means a larger number of weak events against a decrease of the.

The simulations illustrate that if seismicity were uniformly distributed within a seismic zone, apparent concentrations of seismicity and seismic gaps would appear in earthquake records shorter than the time needed for large earthquakes to occur throughout the zone. Seismotectonic Map of Africa, Explanatory Notice ‐ 4 is a good example as an event of intraplate seismicity which occurred on a stable West African craton (‐ Ga).

The seismicity in this province is not frequent according to the geological context. The region is seismically active: the strongest events occurred in and (intensity MCS), and in and ( MCS, magnitudes largely above 6). Being the area densely vegetated.The possible seismic reactivation of the central part of the Ibero-Maghrebian region is an open question, but it is clear that the occurrence of the earthquake confirms that from the seismicity of central part of IMR is increasing and that focal mechanism of largest earthquakes in this central part correspond to complex ruptures (or.Focal mechanism of earthquakes in the Gulf of Cadiz, south Spain and Alboran Sea.
