L'Aquila Earthquake
Abstract: We retrieve seismic velocity variations within the Earth’s crust in the region of L’Aquila (central Italy) by analyzing cross␣correlations of more than two years of continuous seis- mic records. The studied period includes the April 6, 2009, Mw 6.1 L’Aquila earthquake. We observe a decrease of seis- mic velocities as a result of the earthquake’s main shock. After performing the analysis in different frequency bands between 0.1 and 1 Hz, we conclude that the velocity varia- tions are strongest at relatively high frequencies (0.5–1 Hz) suggesting that they are mostly related to the damage in the shallow soft layers resulting from the co␣seismic shaking
