“Exploring representativeness and reliability for late medieval earthquakes in Europe” published in Natural Hazards.

Our paper “Exploring representativeness and reliability for late medieval earthquakes in Europe” was recently published by Natural Hazards. Among other evidence, this paper eventually underlines that central Italy -the scenario of the 2016 Amatrice earthquake- was an area characterised by a high seismic risk since the late Middle Ages. An aspect which reminds us how relative are concepts such… Read More “Exploring representativeness and reliability for late medieval earthquakes in Europe” published in Natural Hazards.

Quantifying seismic effects on European populations and economic activities during the Middle Ages.

New maps on population density during the Middle Ages Thanks to national and international historical seismic catalogues, we already know with accuracy where earthquakes occurred during the high and late Middle Ages in Europe. The real unknown is to gauge how great the impact of these seismic events was on societies and their economies. GIS data management allows… Read More Quantifying seismic effects on European populations and economic activities during the Middle Ages.
