  • In the last three decades, the historical earthquake investigation became an outstand- ing source of information in seismology. The rigorous interpretation of known or newly discovered historical documents from public and private archives, including military and religious documents, press reports, correspondences, publications, etc., brings new light on the effect of past earthquakes and contributes to the assessment of their characteristics. Historical documents are nowadays examined in the frame of modern methodologies and new approaches applied in the study of individual earthquakes.

  • Theoretical study of earthquakes as well as practical application is actually important to determine the earthquake hazard assessment and risk in a specific region. This is probably the most important contribution of seismology to society. recent earthquake showed the inadequacy of a large part of the building construction in and around the epicentral area, so the study of earthquakes has become and more important.

  • The mitigation of earthquake-related hazards represents a key role in the modern society. The mitigation of such kind of hazards spans from detailed studies on seismicity, evaluation of site effects, and seismo-induced landslides, tsunamis as well as and the design and analysis of structures to resist such actions. The study of earthquakes ties together science, technology and expertise in infrastructure and engineering in an effort to minimize human and material losses when they inevitably occur.

  • The study of earthquakes combines science, technology and expertise in infrastructure and engineering in an effort to minimize human and material losses when their occurrence is inevitable. This book is devoted to various aspects of earthquake research and analysis, from theoretical advances to practical applications. Different sections are dedicated to ground motion studies and seismic site characterization, with regard to mitigation of the risk from earthquake and ensuring the safety of the buildings under earthquake loading.

  • When earth material properties are constant in any of the cartesian variables then it is useful to Fourier transform (FT) that variable. In seismology, the earth does not change with time (the ocean does!) so for the earth, we can generally gain by Fourier transforming the time axis thereby converting time-dependent differential equations (hard) to algebraic equations (easier) in frequency (temporal frequency). In seismology, the earth generally changes rather strongly with depth, so we cannot usefully Fourier transform the depth axis and we are stuck with differential equations in .

  • Hidden Markov Models (HMMs), although known for decades, have made a big career nowadays and are still in state of development. This book presents theoretical issues and a variety of HMMs applications in speech recognition and synthesis, medicine, neurosciences, computational biology, bioinformatics, seismology, environment protection and engineering. I hope that the reader will find this book useful and helpful for their own research.

  • Estimating the directions of arrival (DOAs) of propagating planewaves is a requirement ina variety of applications including radar, mobile communications, sonar, and seismology. Due to its simplicity and high-resolution capability, ESPRIT (Estimation of Signal Parameters via Rotational Invariance Techniques) [18] has become one of the most popular signal subspace-basedDOAor spatial frequency estimation schemes. ESPRIT is explicitly premised on a point source model for the sources and is restricted to use with array geometries that exhibit so-called invariances [18]....

  • Asthenosphere A region of the earth’s upper mantle at a depth of approximately 75–150 km, characterized by low mechanical strength, attenuation of seismic shear waves, and partial melting. The term was coined in the 1910s by geologist Joseph Barrell to describe the zone in which isostatic adjustment occurs and basaltic magmas are generated. With the development of plate tectonics in the 1960s, the asthenosphere is now un- derstood as the plastic zone over which the rigid plates move....

  • This book is based on the proceedings of a highly original interna tional conference entitled Histoires de la Terre which took place at th University of Sheffield from 30 March to 1 April 2007. Its chapter explore how Enlightenment and post-Enlightenment developments i the earth sciences and related fields (palaeontology, mining, agron omy, archaeology, seismology, oceanography, evolutionary theory etc.) impacted on contemporary French culture. They reveal that geo logical ideas were a much more...
