Quick Regional Moment Tensors, or QRCMTs, are centroid moment tensors computed rapidly after an earthquake occurred in Euro-Mediterranean region and with a magnitude at least 4.5. For Italy we lower this thresold to 4.0 when possible. The computation method is the same used to update RCMT European-Mediterranean Catalog (Ardvisson and Ekstrom, 1998; Pondrelli et al., 2011 and references therein). Starting from 2011, all QRCMTs solutions are pubblished on this web page and included in the RCMT Web Search Page . A description of the procedure used for computation of QRCMTs can be found in Pondrelli et al., 2012 (Annals of Geophysics, vol. 55, n.4) .
