Faulting, shallow seismicity and seismic hazard analysis for the Costa Rican Central Valley
A seismic hazard map for the Metropolitan Area of San Jose has been elaborated, based on local tectonic and seismic information. The area for the hazard computation covers an area of 20 x 15 km2 and includes the zone where ...
A Constrained 3D Density Model of the Upper Crust from Gravity Data Interpretation for Central Costa Rica
The map of complete Bouguer anomaly of Costa Rica shows an elongated NW-SE trending gravity low in the central region. This gravity low coincides with the geographical region known as the Cordillera Volcánica Central. It ...
The seismically active Andean and Central American margins: Can satellite gravity map lithospheric structures?
The spatial resolution and quality of geopotential models (EGM2008, EIGEN-5C, ITG-GRACE03s, and GOCO-01s) have been assessed as applied to lithospheric structure of the Andean and Central American subduction zones. For the ...
