Abstract
The aim of this study is to present the results of the application of remote sensing techniques for seismic risk analysis, which estimates the geographic distribution, frequency, and intensity of seismic activity, without attempting to predict specific events. This method is based on the recognition of the active faults, which are defined as breaks along which movement has occurred in Holocene time (past 11,000 years). Remote sensing analysis and field studies of active faults can provide a geologic history that overcomes many of the shortcomings of instrumental and historic records.
