Recent crustal movements and earthquakes in the area of the Tornquist Zone

  • Søren Gregersen
  • working group on recent crustal movements around the Tornquist Zone


The present state of knowledge on recent crustal movements, stresses and earthquakes around the Tornquist Zone has been collected. It is found that the Tornquist Zone is neither geodetically nor seismically active, but it separates regions of different earthquake activity.
