The epicentral fingerprint of earthquakes marks the coseismically activated crustal volume”

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 21 Maggio 2021

InSAR images allow to detect the coseismic deformation, delimiting the epicentral area where the larger displacement has been concentrated. By inspecting the InSAR fringe patterns it is commonly recognized that, for dip-slip faults, the most deformed area is elliptical, or quadrilobated for strike-slip faults. This area coincides with the surface projection of the volume coseismically mobilized in the hanging wall of thrusts and normal faults, or the crustal walls adjacent to strike-slip faults. In the present work we analyzed a dataset of 32 seismic events, aiming to compare the deformation fields in terms of shape, spatial extents, and amount of deformed rock volumes, and the corresponding earthquake type and magnitudes. The dimension of the deformed area detected by InSAR scales with the magnitude of the earthquake, and we found that for M ≥ 6 is always larger than 100 km2, increasing to more than 550 km2 for M ≈ 6.5. Moreover, the comparison between InSAR and Peak Ground Accelerations documents the larger shaking within the areas suffering higher vertical deformation. As well established, the seismic epicenter rarely coincides with the area of larger shaking. Instead, the higher macroseismic intensity often corresponds to the area of larger vertical displacement (either downward or upward), apart local site amplification effects. Outside this area, the vertical displacement is drastically lower, determining the strong attenuation of seismic waves and the decrease of the peak ground acceleration in the surrounding far-field area. Indeed, the segment of the activated fault constrains the area where the vertical oscillations are larger, allowing the contemporaneous maximum freedom degree of the crustal volume affected by horizontal maximum shaking, i.e., the near-field or epicentral area; therefore, the epicentral area and volume are active, i.e., they coseismically move and are contemporaneously crossed by seismic waves (active volume and surface active domain) where trapped waves and constructive interference are expected, whereas the surrounding far-field area is mainly fixed and passively crossed by seismic waves (passive volume and surface passive domain). All these considerations point out that InSAR images of areas affected by earthquakes are a powerful tool representing the fingerprint of the epicentral area where the largest shaking has taken place during an earthquake. Seismic hazard assessments should primarily rely on the expected future active domains. Patrizio Petricca, Christian Bignami, Carlo Doglioni (2021).

EP wants data protection guaranteed before allowing fingerprint exchange with UK

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 18 Maggio 2020

MEPs rejected the Council draft implementing decision on the exchange of fingerprints with the UK with 329 votes for, 357 against, and 4 abstentions. MEPs urge the Council not to take any decision on the topic until the UK gives guarantees on full reciprocity and data protection and to wait until the new legal framework for the new partnership cooperation with the UK has been concluded.
The launch of the fingerprint exchange between the United Kingdom and EU member states, bound by the Prüm decision, would allow the responsible national authorities to share fingerprint data to prevent and investigate crimes.This decision on the fingerprint data exchange would be limited to the transition period ending on 31 December. MEPs say however that, since it is not clear if the UK will meet EU data protection standards after this date, such a decision could pose a serious risk to the protection of fundamental rights and freedoms of EU citizens after the transition period.
Furthermore, MEPs think that the reciprocity of the data exchange should be guaranteed before any decision on the matter is taken. As stated in the Council draft implementing decision, the UK does not intend to make fingerprint data from suspects’ profiles available, in contrast with other member states participating in the Prüm system.Decisions on automated exchange of fingerprint data in the EU are enabled by the Prüm framework. It lays down provisions under which EU member states grant each other access to their automated DNA analysis files, automated fingerprint identification systems and vehicle registration data.
The Parliament has a consultative role in the decision.

MEPs against fingerprint data exchange with the UK during transition period

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 12 Maggio 2020

The Civil Liberties Committee gave a negative opinion on starting a fingerprint data exchange between the UK and EU countries without UK guarantees on reciprocity and data protection.Civil Liberties MEPs recommend that the Parliament rejects the Council draft implementing decision on the exchange of fingerprints with the UK by 35 votes for, 30 against, no abstentions. They ask the Council not to take any decision on the topic until the UK gives guarantees on full reciprocity and data protection and the new legal framework for the new partnership cooperation with the UK is concluded.The launch of the fingerprint exchange between the United Kingdom and EU member states, bound by the Prüm decision, would allow the responsible national authorities to share fingerprint data to prevent and investigate criminal offences.

Impronta digitale batterica: il fingerprint che ci rende unici

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 23 dicembre 2019

Ognuno di noi è differente e YOVIS – linea di fermenti lattici di Alfasigma – lo sa. Come sa, tra l’altro, che questa unicità esiste anche a livello di flora intestinale. Ognuno di noi, infatti, oltre ad avere delle impronte digitali uniche, una propria biometria vocale e un’iride differente da quella di chiunque altro, ha una flora intestinale – microbiota – composta da un nucleo di specie batteriche comuni a tutti e da un nucleo di batteri unici e per ciascun individuo: il “fingerprint batterico”, ossia l’impronta digitale batterica.Questa si forma a partire dalla nascita e si costituisce fino più o meno all’età di 4 anni, dopodiché cambia poco nel corso della vita.I microrganismi che colonizzano il nostro intestino intervengono in numerosi processi fondamentali per il nostro benessere: “La loro coesistenza pacifica” – spiega Paola Benatti, Responsabile Sviluppo Nutraceutici R&D – è detta Eubiosi. Quando invece questo equilibrio viene meno, si parla di Disbiosi.”“La disbiosi” – continua la dottoressa Benatti – “è dovuta ad esempio ad eccessi alimentari, stili di vita scorretti o all’utilizzo di antibiotici; dà luogo a disturbi come gonfiore addominale, mal di pancia e può alterare la regolarità intestinale causando diarrea o stitichezza. In caso di disbiosi, per ripristinare il corretto equilibrio della flora intestinale, occorre assumere probiotici, prodotti a base di batteri “buoni”. I probiotici aiutano a ripristinare l’equilibrio della flora batterica intestinale contrastando la proliferazione dei batteri patogeni.”Chiara Francini, Brand Manager Yovis commenta: “Abbiamo voluto diffondere questo concetto così importante e poco noto come l’unicità del microbioma umano anche nel nostro spot. La linea di integratori alimentari YOVIS offre una varietà di referenze che possono essere scelte in base alle proprie preferenze, alle abitudini e allo stile di vita: chi preferisce le caps, chi invece trova più pratico assumere ad esempio gli stick o chi ancora l’ultima novità in flaconcini.”
