Special Issue on the 2012 Emilia (Italy) earthquakes in Annals of Geophysics

Annals of Geophysics, the former Annali di Geofisica, published its latest issue today, dedicated to the 2012 Northern Italy earthquakes: Vol 55, No 4 (2012): The Emilia (northern Italy) seismic sequence of May-June, 2012: preliminary data and results. On 20 May 2012 an earthquake with a magnitude of Mw6.1 hit Finale Emilia, on 29 May an Mw5.8 event followed. The earthquakes caused a number of fatalities and significant damage. Earthquake environmental effects were widely observed, too. In the current issue of Annals of Geophysics, 42 articles related to the earthquake series were published as fast-track letters. Some of them report on preliminary results only. All the articles are free (as always in AoG) and can be downloaded as PDFs.

I was especially interested in the following ones:
