    37. POST- Disruptive earthquakes and surface faulting along the Norcia fault system (Mw 6.9, 1703 earthquake)

    The epicentral region of the devastating 2016 earthquakes (Mw 6.6, Io 11, 300 victims) in the central Italian Apennines is crossed by two, parallel major normal faulting systems: the eastern one (Mount Vettore fault System) was responsible for the 2016 sequence, whereas the western one (Norcia fault system) sourced in 1703 an even more catastrophic earthquake (Mw 6.9, Io 11, >2000 victims), besides several other Mw~6 in historical times. Paleoseismic trenching performed across both systems revealed that these faults share a comparable recurrence time for Mw≥6.6 event (~1.8 ky). The fast field-trip will allow the participants to see some of the impressive outcrops of both Norcia and Mount Vettore faults, where we made dozens trenches in the past 25 years, and to visit the medieval town of Norcia
