  • Geology, Resources and Tectonics

    Myanmar is a country vastly rich in gold, silver, base metals, tin–tungsten, gems and hydrocarbons and is one of the last exploration frontiers remaining in the world. Tectonically Myanmar lies at the eastern end of the Himalayan Mountain Chain and over the last 50 Ma has been profoundly affected by the collision between India and Eurasia, ...

  • Earth Science for Disaster Risk Reduction

    With dense urban populations located in one of the most active tectonic belts in the world, Indonesia is a hotspot for natural hazard risk. During the twentieth century, Indonesia had limited means to keep natural disaster fatalities from rising commensurately with the explosive growth in population. This situation is changing rapidly, however, ...

  • Atlas of Submarine Glacial Landforms: Modern, Quaternary and Ancient

    New geophysical techniques (multibeam echo sounding and 3D seismics) have revolutionized high-resolution imaging of the modern seafloor and palaeo-shelf surfaces in Arctic and Antarctic waters, generating vast quantities of data and novel insights into sedimentary architecture and past environmental conditions. The Atlas of Submarine Glacial ...

  • Earthquakes and Tsunamis in the Past: A Guide to Techniques in Historical Seismology

    This handbook defines the discipline of historical seismology by detailing the latest research methodologies for studying historical earthquakes and tsunamis. Incorporating examples from a broad geographic region (including Europe, North Africa, the Middle East, central Asia, and the Americas), the text presents numerous interpretations and ...

  • Life-Cycle Cost and Performance of Civil Infrastructure Systems

    This bookcontains papers covering a wide range of studies on life-cycle performance analysis, design, maintenance, monitoring, management, and cost of civil infrastructure systems. Topics include reliability and optimization as design basis tools, monitoring systems, life-cycle cost analysis and management, bridge management systems, and quality ...

  • Signal and Image Processing for Remote Sensing

    Most data from satellites are in image form, thus most books in the remote sensing field deal exclusively with image processing. However, signal processing can contribute significantly in extracting information from the remotely sensed waveforms or time series data. Pioneering the combination of the two processes, Signal and Image Processing for ...

  • Sedimentology

    This book is primarily intended for university students and geologists interested in Sedimentology. It incorporates conceptual advancements without neglecting sedimentary processes and detailed observation of sedimentary bodies which remain the ''cornerstone'' for any thorough study. Reconstruction of environments and basin analysis are also ...

  • Nondestructive Testing of Pavements and Backcalculations of Moduli: Third Volume

    More than 30 papers present a comprehensive overview of the latest advances in and the future direction of nondestructive testing (NDT) of airport and highway pavement using conventional falling weight deflectometer (FWD) technique and other promising techniques such as ground penetrating radar (GPR), rolling weight deflectometer (RWD) testing, ...

  • Design and Tests of Building Structures: Symposiums on Seismic and Shock Loading Glued Laminated and Other Constructions

    This book contains two symposiums containing 10 papers. The first relates to the proper design and testing of construction resistant to earthquakes; the second to glued laminated structural ...

  • Acoustics of Layered Media I

    The theory of the propagation of plane sound waves in layered structures is presented systematically in this book. The layered structures may be man-made, for example ultrasonic filters, lenses, and surface-wave delay lines, or natural media such as the ocean and the atmosphere with their marked horizontal stratification. A related problem is the ...

  • Seismic Hazard and Building Vulnerability in Post-Soviet Central Asian Republics

    Summarises the currently available seismic and engineering data pertaining to the seismic hazard of the capitals of the Central Asian republics. The conclusion is that the risk to residents of these cities is extremely high. There is a roughly 40% probability that an earthquake will occur near one of the Central Asian republic's capitals ...

  • Ionospheric Precursors of Earthquakes

    The book aims to explain the variations of near-Earth plasma observed over seismically active areas several days/hours before strong seismic shocks. It demonstrates how seismo-ionospheric coupling is part of the global electric circuit and shows that the anomalous electric field appearing in active seismic areas is the main carrier of information ...

  • Geophysical Applications of Artificial Neural Networks and Fuzzy Logic

    This book is the first major text to encompass the wide diversity of geophysical applications of artificial neural networks (ANNs) and fuzzy logic (FZ). Each chapter, written by internationally-renowned experts in their field, represents a specific geophysical application, ranging from first-break picking and trace editing encountered in seismic ...

  • Mitigation and Financing of Seismic Risks: Turkish and International Perspectives

    Huge economic losses from natural disasters, including nearly 100 000 fatalities world wide in 1999 alone, gave rise to a renewed recognition by government, industry and the public that national governments and international agencies cannot simply go on as they have in the past. Changes in financial cover, better enforcement procedures for ...

  • North Sea Oil and Gas Reservoirs III

    Oil and gas have been produced from North Sea reservoirs for over two decades. The economic and technological challenges posed by the North Sea have necessitated a continuing development of refined geological and reservoir technical methods for reservoir evaluation and management. This book, which is the third in a series, brings together the ...

  • Induced Seismicity

    A workshop on Induced Seismicity was organized during the 27th General Assembly of the International Association of Seismology and Physics of Earth's Interior (IASPEI) in Wellington, New Zealand during January 10-21, 1994. This volume presents a collection of 16 papers accepted for publication which accrued from this workshop. The first three ...

  • Mantle Plumes

    The concept of mantle plumes, hot buoyant rock masses that rise in the mantle, is a key to understand intraplate volcanism in the framework of modern plate tectonics. Recent progress in instrumental, analytical and satellite technology enables scientists to verify the plume hypothesis with seismic tomography, isotope geochemistry and other ...
