environmental earthquake effects
ESI scale 2007
|Abstract: ||The area of the Salento peninsula (Apulia, Southern Italy) is considered the stable
foreland of the Southern Apennines chain (Cinque et al., 1993), although it has been hit by several
low energy and a few high energy earthquakes over the last centuries.
The aim of this study is a critical revision of the historical and recent seismicity of the Salento
peninsula and surrounding seismogenetic areas, for re-evaluating the macroseismic effects in MCS
scale and ground effects in natural environment, according to the ESI 2007 scale (Michetti et al.,
2007; Guerrieri et al., 2012). In particular, the February 20, 1743 earthquake, the strongest of the
area, was reviewed and new MCS intensity values were attributed to some localities. Moreover we
have evaluated the most important effects on land in the Salento area due to the strong earthquakes
of Northern Apulia, Southern Apennines, Adriatic and Ionian sea, Albania and Greece.
The use of both traditional MCS macroseismic intensity scale and the ESI 2007 scale gives a more
accurate image of the earthquake (Dengler and McPherson, 1993; Porfido et al., 2007; Serva et al.,
2007) and allowed us to better constrain the seismic hazard assessment in the Salento peninsula.|
