Classificazione degli eventi sismici emiliani 2012 e del loro pattern di innesco - Classification of the Emilia 2012 earthquakes and their triggering pattern

Sulla base dello studio di Riga & Balocchi (2016), è possibile classificare l'evento di Mw 5.8 del 20 maggio 2012 come Progressive earthquakes dove il pattern di innesco è definito come Expansion triangle (fig. 1). 

Based on the study of Riga & Balocchi (2016), it is possible to classify the Mw 5.8 earthquake of 20 May 2012 as the Progressive earthquakes where the trigger pattern is defined as Expansion triangle (fig. 1).

  1. Seismologists care about people's lives?
    Why seismologists do not wish to advance the method which is now ready for accurate earthquake prediction?
    There is a method. This method is tested .
    But you still hide the fact that even today we can save lives.

    1. In this article we expose a method to classify the Earthquake sequence and the triggering pattern of future strong earthquakes. In the next article we expose the first algorithms.

  2. It would be an help to graph some stuff like "bollinger bands" or similars.
    Energy or specific energy (E per event) vs n. events as well.
