Evidence of surface faulting in the archaeological site of Santa Venera al Pozzo (Catania-Eastern Sici-ly): first results from geophysical investigations

Risultato della ricerca: Otherpeer review

Abstract

We present the first results of a preliminary geological and geophysical survey carried out in the archaeological site of Santa Venera al Pozzo (Catania, Italy). The site dates back to the Roman Age, (1st century BC). Geological surveys highlighted a set of remarkable fractures affecting some archeological remains, suggesting the occurrence of a capable fault zone through the area. Multidisciplinary geophysical surveys (seismic refraction and electrical resistivity tomographies, together with aerial photographic and thermographic survey) identified a main tectonicdiscontinuity ascribable to the fault zone, allowing us to infer that the fractures observed at surface could be the evidence of coseismic ruptures.
