Il progetto
The 2007-2009 Agreement between the Dipartimento della Protezione Civile (DPC) and the Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia (INGV) includes, among the others, the execution of a series of Projects in Seismology funded by the DPC. These are developed to achieve objectives of specific interest for the DPC in the field of Seismology, and they are carried out with the contribution of the national and international scientific community.

Project S1 Analysis of the seismic potential in Italy for the evaluation of the seismic hazard

Coordinators: Salvatore Barba (INGV - RM1) and Carlo Doglioni (University of Roma "La Sapienza")
DPC Tutors: Daniela Di Bucci and Rita De Nardis
The study of seismicity needs a multidisciplinary approach. Therefore, the S1 project integrates instrumental and historical seismology, earthquake geology, off-fault/marine paleoseismology, earthquake geodesy, neotectonic models, and earthquake probabilities.
Geophysical, seismological, geodetic, geochemical, geological and historical data are all significant in determining the seismic hazard of an area.
