  • 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.

  • A non–financial variable not specific to a party to the contract includes, for example, an index of earthquake losses in a particular region and an index of temperatures in a particular city. A non–financial variable specific to a party would be, for example, the occurrence or non-occurrence of a fire that damages or destroys an asset of a party to the contract.

  • Sudden shifting of the ocean floor due to earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and submarine slumping.open ocean: short heights, long wavelengths (100 km), and long periods 400-500 mph!!! shallow water: their length shortens and their height increases dramatically...

  • Request tracing. Our view of system logs as providing a control-flow perspective of system execution, when cou- pled with log messages which have unique identifiers for the relevant request or processing task, allows us to ex- tract request-flow views of the system. Much work has been done to extract request-flow views of systems, and these request flow views have then been used to diagnose and debug performance problems in distributed systems [2] [1].

  • Most women in prison are mothers and usually the primary or sole carer for their children. Research from many countries has shown that, when fathers are imprisoned, the mother usually continues to care for the children. However, when a mother is imprisoned, the father often does not continue to care for the children, resulting in large numbers of children being institutionalized (United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, 2008).

  • Given the new unusual and usual event models, both adapted from the general usual event model, the HMM topology is changed with one more state. Hence the cur- rent HMM has 2 states, one representing the usual events and one representing the first detected unusual event. The Viterbi algorithm is then used to find the best possible state sequence which could have emitted the observation sequence, according to the maximum likelihood (ML) cri- terion (Figure 2, step 3). Transition points, which define new segments, are detected using the current HMM topol- ogy and parameters.

  • The charge to this committee—to envision the future of geotechnology— is at once a grand challenge and a problem. In many ways, geotechnology is a mature field having come to its majority in the last 50 years. Many serious problems have been solved. We know how to build strong foundations, safe dams, and stable roads and tunnels. We have a good understanding about the behavior and protection of groundwater, how to extract the petroleum resources, and develop a geothermal field.

  • While the loss likely caused by environmental and other impacts besides earthquakes in the life cycle of a structure, additional effects will be studied in future and this paper focuses on limit the impact of the earthquake. This section explains the method to calculate forces seismic design goals.

  • The Naval Facilities Engineering Command seeks to expand the technology base upon which future shore facilities are founded. An important area in which a new design approach is being developed is in the management and understanding of those characteristics of earthquake and explosively generated foundation motions that damage or destroy Naval equipment. This report is a part of the design method development. Specifically, it documents and offers a new method of shock and response spectrum computation.

  • The International Year of Planet Earth (IYPE) was established as a means of raising worldwide public and political awareness of the vast, though frequently under-used, potential the Earth Sciences possess for improving the quality of life of the peoples of the world and safeguarding Earth’s rich and diverse environments. The International Year project was jointly initiated in 2000 by the International Union of Geological Sciences (IUGS) and the Earth Science Division of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO).

  • Droughts can result in heavy crop and livestock losses, in which the poor are usually disproportionately hurt. Poor livestock owners tend to engage in distress sales of livestock at depressed prices, leaving them extremely vulnerable to drought and other shocks in future, and possibly trapping them permanently in chronic poverty. Recurrent droughts in Sub-Saharan Africa over the last two decades have had devastating effects on natural resources and on livelihoods.
