Digitized fault map

A digitized fault map of the South Iceland seismic zone is a prerequisite for a meaningful interpretation of deformations measured by SAR and GPS technology. Surface expressions of seismogenic faults of the area have been mapped in varying detail during the last two decades, most extensively by students in the Department of Geology and Geography of the University of Iceland. It was decided to gather this information and assemble a homogeneous map of the faults in digital form. This task was approached in two steps:
