Abstract: We present a 1:20,000 scale map of the traces of the active Capitignano and San Giovanni faults in the area of the Montereale basin (central Apennines, Italy) covering an area of about 80 km2. Detailed fault mapping is based on high-resolution topography from airborne LiDAR imagery validated by extensive ground truthing and geophysical prospecting. Our analysis allowed the recognition of several features related to fault activity, even in scarcely accessible areas characterized by dense vegetation cover and rugged terrain. The identified fault traces run at the base of the NW-SE striking Montereale basin-bounding mountain front and along the base of the southwestern slope of the Monte Mozzano ridge, and have a length of about 12 and 8 km, respectively. Improving the knowledge of fault geometry is a critical issue not only for the recognition of seismogenic sources but also for surface fault hazard assessment and for local urban planning. The knowledge of the exact location of the fault traces is also crucial for the seismogenic characterization of the active faults by means of paleoseismological trenching.
