About this book

Proceedings of the NATO Advanced Research Workshop on The Adria Microplate: GPS Geodesy, Active Tectonics and Hazards, held in Veszprem, Hungary 4-7 April 2004.


Preface. Introduction. Recent Advances in Peri-Adriatic Geodynamics and Future Research Directions.- Regional Tectonic Framework. Pleistocene Change from Convergence to Extension in the Apennines as a Consequence of Adria Microplate Motion.- Plate Tectonic Framework and GPS-Derived Strain-Rate Field within the Boundary Zones ofthe Eurasian and African Plates.- Post-Late Miocene Kinematics of the Adria Microplate: Inferences from Geological, Geophysical and Geodetic Data.- Geologic Evidence of Adria Motion. Paleomagnetic Evidence for Tertiary Counterclockwise Rotation of Adria with Respect to Africa.- Paleomagnetic Constraints for the Reconstruction of the Geodynamic Evolution of the Middle Miocene-Pleistocene.- Geo-Structural Evidence for Active Oblique Extension in South-Central Italy.- Rates of Late Neogene Deformation along the Southwestern Margin of Adria, Southern Apennines Orogen, Italy.- The Albanian Orogen: Convergence Zone between Eurasia and the Adria Microplate.- Late Cenozoic Tectonics of Slovenia: Structural Styles at the Northeastern Corner of the Adriatic Microplate.- Geodetic Infrastructure and Technology Recent Monitoring of Crustal Movements in the Eastern Mediterranean; the Use of GPS Measurements.- Consortium for Central European GPS Geodynamic Reference Network (CEGRN Consortium).- Geodynamic Investigation in Bosnia and Herzegovina.- Instrumentation for Terrestrial Measurements of Geodynamics and the Main Sources of Disturbance.- Vertical Movements in Slovenia from Leveling Data.-Geoid Determination in Serbia.- Processing of Geodynamic GPS-networks in Croatia with GAMIT Software.- Geodetic Measurement and Geodynamics Active Deformation of the Northern Adriatic Region: Results from the CRODYN Geodynamical Experiment.- Fragmentation of Adria and Active Decollement Tectonics within the Southern Peri-Tyrrhenian Orogen, Italy.- Geodetic Measurement in the Aegean Sea Region for the Detection of Crustal Deformation.- The PIVO-2003 GPS Experiment: a Study of Istria Peninsula and Adria Microplate Motion and Neotectonics in the Northeastern, Slovenian Corner ofthe Alps.- Crustal Deformation between Adria and the European Platform from Space Geodesy.- Seismology, Seismic Hazard, and Societal Impacts of Adria Tectonics Seismicity along the Northwestern Edge ofthe Adria Microplate.-Seismicity of the Adriatic Microplate and a Possible Triggering Geodynamic Implication.-Seismic Hazard in the Pannonian Region.- Societal Aspects of Ongoing Deformation in the Pannonian Region.- Author List.
