Active Faults of Eurasia Fatabase (updated version - AFEAD v.2023)

Explanatory information:

The structure and format of data recording in AFEAD v.2023 remains unchanged and is fully consistent with the previous version - AFEAD v.2022.
You can find them in the publication: Zelenin E.A, Bachmanov D.M., Garipova S.T., Trifonov V.G., Kozhurin A.I. The Active Faults of Eurasia Database (AFEAD): the ontology and design behind the continental-scale dataset // Earth System Science Data. 2022. vol. 14. p. 4489-4503.

In relation to the previous version, the following additions and clarifications have been made to AFEAD v.2023: 1037 new objects (fault segments) were introduced for the first time; and another 1638 fault segments that were already part of the previous version, supplemented with new parameters and clarified regarding their location on the ground. Thus, a total of 2675 segments were edited, which is about 5% of their total number.

The source of information for entering and clarifying objects were published scientific articles and maps. A total of 47 sources were used, of which 20 were published in 2023, another 10 in 2022, and most of the rest after 2012. The list of sources contains: full and corresponding short links to each publication, as well as the number of new and updated old objects added according to information from each publication.

The updated version of AFEAD v.2023 is presented using the software of the Yandex mapping service. Compared to the previous version, the option to display changes made has been added to the user interface. When you select the 'New in v.2023' item from the 'Layers' menu located in the upper-right part of the screen, the added and refined objects are highlighted in white and blue, respectively.

Additional materials:

Raster map of active faults of Eurasia and surrounding waters, created based on the Active Faults of Eurasia Database (AFEAD), updated version of AFEAD v.2023. It is presented in the form of a series of 20 sheets reflecting large regional complexes of active tectonic structures.
The sheets are assigned serial numbers and conventional names, according to the commonly used names of the macroregions approximately corresponding to them. View raster maps of active faults (this page is in Russian)
