Active Faults in the Kerch Peninsula: New Results
- 6 Downloads
This paper reports recently obtained research data on active faults in the Kerch Peninsula. The compiled Map of Active Faults demonstrates foci of Late Holocene strong earthquakes. This map is a regional seismotectonic model of strong earthquake foci, and a detailed basis for prediction of spatial seismic hazards. According to the research results, the Kerch Peninsula is characterized by the features of classical morphostructures, while the morphology of recent peninsula contours is caused by large active fault zones.
