This web reviews some main features of the most important faults in the Bohemian Massif and its close neighbourhood. It uses a structured database of active faults and related local observations made or compiled by the It will use a structured database of active faults and related local observations made or compiled by the editors between 2019 and 2022 and occasionally updated with new contributions. The current map is incomplete (e.g. faults in Šumava Mountains, Eger rift, Krkonoše Mountains, are largely missing) and even the work on the main faults is still ongoing.
The emphasis here is on those faults which were demonstrably active in Cenozoic and/or which are assumed to pose increased seismic hazard for the following thousands of years. For the sake of completeness, some other significant (or notorious) faults are added, beyond these criteria.
You may navigate to the targets either via map below (it downloads slowly!) or via encyclopedic entries in the sidebar.

Making the database available for your GIS is in the pipeline.
