Tectonic setting, seismicity and GPS velocities in the Alboran Sea region. Topography and bathymetry of the Alboran Sea. Historical (1400–1960) and instrumental (1980–2015) seismicity previous to the 2016 event are colour-coded according to hypocentre depths. The GPS velocity field is drawn with respect to Nubia24 (blue arrows), and Eurasia-Nubia relative motion6 (white arrows). The main faults located on the map are: AIFS: Al-Idrissi Fault System; ARFS: Alboran Ridge Fault System; CFS: Carboneras Fault System; NSF: North-South Faults; EBSZ: Eastern Betic Shear Zone; TASZ: Trans-Alboran Shear Zone; TF: Trougout Fault. HOCM: Al-Hoceima; YFS: Yusuf Fault System; MELI: Melilla. Upper left: Configuration of the Eurasia and Nubia Plates in the western Mediterranean Sea
