Abstract

AbstractThe fractal properties of seismicity and active faults in Balkans have been studied on the basis of data for distribution of earthquakes and active fault structures in the region. It was found that the fractal dimension of the area distribution of earthquake epicenters for the Balkans dE is 1.74, the fractal dimension of the time distribution of the b-value from the recurrence graph of earthquakes is equal to 0.97 and the fractal dimension of the spatial distribution of fault structures df is 1.66. The obtained results are the basis of the interpretation of self-similarity and self-organization of the two main geodynamic elements—the regional seismicity and the fault network of the Balkans.
