Encyclopedia of Earthquake Research and Analysis: Volume I (Seismology and Geology) (Hardcover)
This book covers various aspects of earthquake research. Based upon the earthquake's magnitude and the placement of its hypocenter, it has the capability to be extremely destructive. Seeing that earthquakes can cause much loss and death, it is crucial to understand the process and the physics behind this phenomenon. This book focuses on particular historical earthquakes and seismology in various tectonic surroundings and also includes a more applied study of the geology of earthquakes.
