Learning Objectives

This curriculum in Tectonics and risk assessment aimed at offering to students a complete formative path in tectonics and seismology of earthquakes. Students will be introduced to the quantitative analysis of geometries and kinematics of the local and regional tectonic structures controlling the genesis of earthquakes and to seismic hazard.  The methodological multidisciplinary approach integrates of structural geology, geophysical, active tectonics, earthquake geology, seismology, seismotectonics, seismic hazard, volcanology, and geodetic geological data. Several examples will be applied both in the professional and research fields. Finally, the course aims to develop a critical analysis of the scientific literature in the students.

Program

1. Introduction to the course; tectonics, seismicity and focal mechanisms. Territorial analysis related to seismic risk.

2. Structural geological analysis with geometric, kinematic and dynamic methodologies and their integration with seismological, geological-structural, geophysical and geodetic data.

3. Quantitative seismotectonics (quantification of an earthquake; composite events, multiple events and triggering; seismic sequences and interpretation of the aftershocks;

4. analysis of seismic and tectonic deformation, estimation of the areal seismogenic potential and of single sources.

5. Territorial analysis and the Italian seismotectonic zonation and the main individual seismogenetic structures with implications for the definition of the basic seismic hazard, on a regional scale.

6. Examples from the world of seismogenic areas in a transcendent, relaxing, compressive and subduction regime.

7. Methods and exercises for the analysis of seismological databases (eg historical, instrumental seismicity, focal mechanisms, etc.)

Bridging Courses

It is strongly recommended that the student has passed the fundamental exams of the first year of the course.

Learning Achievements (Dublin Descriptors)

The course aims to provide the student with an adequate method of analysis to understand, process and synthesize tectonic structures, and apply this knowledge in different geological environments and in different tectonic contexts. These skills are encouraged, stimulated and achieved through course attendance, laboratory exercises and specific activities on the ground. The verification of their achievement is obtained through the final examination tests.

Teaching Material

The teaching material prepared by the lecturer in addition to recommended textbooks (such as for instance slides, lecture notes, exercises, bibliography) and communications from the lecturer specific to the course can be found inside the Moodle platform › blended.uniurb.it

Supporting Activities

Laboratory activities and field trips.


Teaching, Attendance, Course Books and Assessment

Teaching

Lectures, laboratory exercises and field trips.

Attendance

There are no attendance obligations for frontal lessons. However the student is advised to attend at least 2/3 of the laboratory activities, exercises on the ground, seminars and seminar-type training activities.

Course books

Notes from the teacher's lessons.

recommended books:

Davis G.H. - Structural Geology of Rocks and Regions, John Wiley & Sons, New York, 1984.

Yeats R.S., Sieh K., Allen C.R. - The geology of earthquakes - Oxford University Press, 1997.

Scholz C.H. - The mechanics of earthquakes and faulting - Cambridge University Press, 2018.

Scientific articles and websites on specific topics will be suggested and provided by the teacher during the course.

Assessment

Oral exam with a write report

Disabilità e DSA

Le studentesse e gli studenti che hanno registrato la certificazione di disabilità o la certificazione di DSA presso l'Ufficio Inclusione e diritto allo studio, possono chiedere di utilizzare le mappe concettuali (per parole chiave) durante la prova di esame.

A tal fine, è necessario inviare le mappe, due settimane prima dell’appello di esame, alla o al docente del corso, che ne verificherà la coerenza con le indicazioni delle linee guida di ateneo e potrà chiederne la modifica.
