Book: Living With Earthquakes in The Pacific Northwest (Yeats) In this expanded new edition of Living with Earthquakes, Robert Yeats, a leading authority on earthquakes in California and the Pacific Northwest, describes the threat posed by the Cascadia Subduction Zone, a great earthquake fault which runs for hundreds of miles offshore from British Columbia to northern . Introduction to Volcanic Seismology, Third Edition covers all aspects of volcano seismology, specifically focusing on recent studies and developments. This new edition expands on the historical aspects, including updated information on how volcanic seismology was handled in the past (instrumentation, processing techniques, number of.

Similar techniques have also successfully been used to study other planetary bodies (planetary seismology), the Sun (helioseismology), and other stars (asteroseismology). Despite obvious differences between stars and planetary bodies, these disciplines share many .

Seismology (/ s aɪ z ˈ m ɒ l ə dʒ i /; from Ancient Greek σεισμός (seismós) meaning "earthquake" and -λογία (-logía) meaning "study of") is the scientific study of earthquakes and the propagation of elastic waves through the Earth or through other planet-like bodies.

The field also includes studies of earthquake environmental effects such as tsunamis as well as diverse. This book provides an approachable and concise introduction to seismology theory.

It clearly explains the fundamental concepts, emphasizing intuitive understanding over lengthy derivations. Topics include all that is needed for a comprehensive first course in seismology: stress/strain theory, seismic wave equation, ray theory, tomography, reflection seismology, surface waves, /5(3).

This book grew out of Mine Seismology: Glossary of Selected Terms, presented at the 8th Symposium on Rockbursts and Seismicity in Mines (RaSiM8) in St. Petersburg, Russia in It summarises the expertise gained over several decades of experience in the field, drawing together relevant concepts from diverse disciplines, including mathematics.
