Submarine Active Faults: From Regional Observations to Seismic Hazard Characterization

In the last few years, the development of new geophysical instrumentation has made possible the availability of offshore geological and geophysical data at various scales with unprecedented detail and resolution (deep and shallow borehole, wide-angle seismic profiles, tomography, 3D and 2D seismic reflection surveys, high-resolution bathymetry and profiling). These new data has allowed making major advances in the study of active faults in offshore areas, their recent activity and seismogenic potential.
The aim of this session is to compile studies that focus on the use of geophysical data to identify and characterize offshore active structures, their seismogenic and tsunamigenic potential and possibly related features such as submarine landslides, and to estimate the related hazards. Studies can be focused from local to regional scale.
