  • Recent Evolution and Seismicity of the Mediterranean Region

    The geodynamic evolution of the Mediterranean region has been often described as a 'puzzling problem' because of the complex space-time distribution of tectonic events. The gathering of new constraining information and frequent changes of data and ideas among the scientists working on this topic seems to be the most suitable approach to the ...

  • Physics of Tsunamis

    There has been significant progress in tsunami research, monitoring and mitigation within the last decade. This book summarizes the state-of-the-art knowledge on tsunamis. It presents a comprehensive overview of tsunamis, seaquakes and other catastrophic ocean phenomena. It describes up-to-date models of tsunamis generated by a submarine ...

  • Vrancea Earthquakes: Tectonics, Hazard and Risk Mitigation

    This volume contains the most relevant peer-reviewed papers presented at The First International Workshop on Vrancea Earthquakes, held in Bucharest on November 1-4, 1997. Strong earthquakes in the Romanian Vrancea area have caused a high toll of casualties and extensive damage over the last several centuries. With a moment magnitude of 7.4, ...

  • Mechanics Problems in Geodynamics

    Geodynamics concerns with the dynamics of the global motion of the earth, of the motion in the earth's interior and its interaction with surface features, together with the mechanical processes in the deformation and rupture of geological structures. Its final object is to determine the driving mechanism of these motions which is highly ...

  • Mechanics Problems in Geodynamics

    Geodynamics concerns the dynamics of the earth's global motion, of the earth's interior motion and its interaction with surface features, together with the mechanical processes in the deformation and rupture of geological structures. Its final object is to determine the driving mechanism of these motions. It is highly interdisciplinary. In ...

  • Mud Volcanoes, Geodynamics and Seismicity

    The purpose of the book is to link together knowledge obtained in the observation of mud volcanism and local seismicity. Geological, Seismological, Geophysical and Geochemical parameters are considered. The book represents the modern state of the art after many decades of observations. The book fills an editorial gap and improves knowledge in the ...

  • Earthquake Spectra

    The great earthquake and tsunami of 26 December 2004, and the resulting tragic loss of life across the Indian Ocean, created global awareness of the tsunami phenomenon and it's unpredictability, and the destructiveness of its impact across political borders and ocean basins. An estimated 230,000 people lost their lives, and more than a million ...
