The combined map of all the Central Apennine series may be a bit misleading only using the first 250 events.
Really what it shows is that this area is a zone of elevated risk, and that there is no one fault causing all the drama.
The PDF from the Geotechnical Extreme Events Reconnaissance Association Engineering Reconnaissance of the 24 August 2016 Central Italy Earthquake.
Version 2 that I put a link on the Visso Norcia page
just now is a great source of information, it mentions the faults involved.
Mt.Vettore-Bove fault, MVBF;
Norcia fault, NF;
Cascia fault, CF;
Amatrice fault segment, AFs;
Campotosto fault segment, CFs;
Capitignano fault, CaF;
Upper Aterno Valley-Paganica fault system, UAV-PF;
Monti Gemelli-Montagna dei Fiori fault, MGMFF.
although their map of them is a bit small.
Putting L'Aquilla aside for now (seeing as it was 8 years ago) and also the factthat when I downloaded the data for LAquilla I did so using a
rectangle rather than a centre point and km distance from, so it cuts off at Lat 42.859, which is inside the new Accumoli-Amatrice-Norcia-Visso series
area, but it is very likely some of the L'Aquilla aftershocks went further north back then, and I didn't include them.
Here is a short animation showing how the 3 main events (based on time) overlap each other.
1. Accumoli ran for 17,647 events; 2. Visso for 1,800 but here is combined with Norcia for 25,818; 3. Amatrice was at 724
Although I did Accumoli as a seperate page, time has indicated that they are all related in this zone of earthquake activity 2016-2017, therefore I
should combine them all in one page. But keep the maps separate for each part.
I will do this soon, and these recent events will become part of the Norcia sequence.
I don't think these 3 x 5s (biggest 5.5) warrant thier own page.
If another bigger 6 pops, well thats another story.
We are now looking at 46,065+ events since 24th August 2016.
edit on 01000000191917 by muzzy because: I used the wrong file for the Accumoli part of the animation, only had half of the events. Redid and
