Abstract

The Friuli Venezia Giulia Region was affected by several destructive earthquakes over the last centuries. In order to identify the causes of the local seismic amplification, geomorphological scenarios has been proposed. They represent the site-specific geological, geomorphological and topographical characteristics (geo-morphotypes). We represent the whole region in terms of these geo-morphotypes in a map.
