3D shaking scenarios

The goal of the Component 1 of the CRONOS project is to simulate numerically ground motions caused by a strong earthquake. To make this happen, we will use results from different kind of research: seismicity (where do we find earthquakes and how often do they appear), Earth’s inner structure, and seismotectonic characteristics (where do we find faults and are they active or seismogenic). With this kind of simulation, we can make shaking scenarios that can give us a realistic image of what can we expect when such a (similar) earthquake happens.

Our plan is to make such a shaking scenario for Northern and Central Dalmatia caused by the strong earthquake such has already struck this area.

The 3D shaking scenario will be available on this website…
