Overview

The collected articles highlight the importance of the geology of the events. Only through the reconstruction of the past can we try to do forecasting for the future. Otherwise, our tools would be limited to mere preventive measures. The knowledge of when, where, how often, and with what magnitude large earthquakes occur is crucial for understanding and characterizing the seismic hazard of a region. For this purpose, the papers regard the recent progress in the study of recent and past seismic events on the base of the descriptions and analysis of primary effects (surface ruptures) and secondary ones (tsunamis and liquefactions).
