RCMT for other regions

This page contains the list of several RCMTs computed for earthquakes belonging to a single seismic sequence or a particular sub-region of the European Mediterranean area or sharing the type of seismic source (e.g. tsunamigenic).

1976 Friuli seismic sequence

Seismic sequence of the 2009, L'Aquila earthquake

Cyprus region from 1977 to present

We analyzed digital seismic records inorder to extend back in time the catalog of regionalcentroid moment tensors (RCMTs) for the Cyprusregion. Wecomputed 18 new regional CMTs of earthquakes ofmoderate magnitude (4.8≤M≤5.5) which occurred inthe Cyprus region for the time span 1977–1996 (red focal mechanisms in map). The complete focalmechanism database contributed to better define thedeformation styles in the study area. New RCMTs support the hypothesis thatCyprus is located in the middle of the transition from subduction to continental collision along theAfrica–Arabian–Eurasian boundary.
