The Alto Tiberina fault (ATF) in the Northern Apennines is a low-angle normal fault. It is being monitored by The Alto Tiberina Near Fault Observatory (TABOO), a multidisciplinary research infrastructure managed by INGV and part of the European Plate Observing System.
A STrainmeter ARray in shallow boreholes (STAR) will complement and enhance TABOO. STAR will consist of six 80-160 m deep vertical boreholes covering the portion of the ATF that exhibits REs at shallow depth (~4 km), instrumented with strainmeters, downhole seismometers and pressure transducers.
