Description (Dublin Core)

eng Seismic activity in Croatia and surrounding areas in the 1993-1996 period was mostly confined to the previously identified seismically active areas. Nine events (excluding aftershocks) with the magnitude equal to or exceeding 4.5 occurred during that time. The most important earthquake sequence is the one that started on September 5, 1996 (Ml=6.0, Imax=VIII MSK) in the Ston-Slano area (greater Dubrovnik region). Microseismic locations of hypocentres of thousands of aftershocks, as well as the best double-couple CMT solution for the main-shock indicate that the earthquakes occurred on the NW-SE striking reverse fault system dipping towards NE.
