Abstract

The two methodologies applied in this study develop the widely accepted concept that the lithosphere is built-up by different-scale blocks, separated by mobile boundaries. The aim of this work is to provide new insights about active deformations and to improve seismic hazard assessment in the Alps and surrounding areas. The Morphostructural Zonation method, MSZ (Alekseevskaya et al., 1977), allows for the identification of the sites capable of the strong events, while the block model of the lithosphere dynamics (Gabrielov et al., 1990) permits to generate a synthetic catalogue of earthquakes to be used for the analysis of some long-term features of seismic energy release in the modeled region.
