High resolution morphometric analysis of the Cordone del Vettore normal fault scarp (2016 central Italy seismic sequence): Insights into age, earthquake recurrence and throw rates

Geomorphology, Volume 388, 2021, 107784, ISSN 0169-555X, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.geomorph.2021.107784 (https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0169555X21001926) 


Highlights

  • Morphometric analysis of normal fault scarp from high-resolution DSM
  • Calculation of long-term throw distribution of a seismogenic normal fault
  • Correlation of a post-glacial offset geomorphic marker with deglaciation phases
  • Average throw rate of ~0.8 mm/a for a Late Pleistocene normal fault scarp
  • Average recurrence time interval of ~1100 a for repeating surface faulting
