Despite the amount of research focused on the Alpine orogen, different hypotheses still exist regarding varying seismicity distribution patterns throughout the numerous crustal blocks of different physical properties that comprise the region. The thermal field, also varying as a consequence of heterogeneous lithospheric properties, is a key controlling factor for rock strength via thermally activated creep and it exerts a first...
