Seismic Monitoring Books

  • Mathematics of Multidimensional Seismic Imaging, Migration, and Inversion

    In the last 40 years geophysicists have found that it is possible to construct images and even determine important physical characteristics of rocks that can yield information about oil and gas bearing structures in the earth. To make these images and extract this information requires the application of an advanced understanding of the ...

  • Messina Seismological Observatory Memorial Volume

    This issue is addressed to researchers dealing with seismic studies as the result of an interactive process as part of macroseismic approaches and an a-priori determination of the elements if the territory is involved in the seismic risk evaluation. The significant features which distinguish the work can be identified in the use of new methods for ...

  • Seismic waves in laterally inhomogeneous media

    The special issue contains contributions presented at the international workshop Seismic waves in laterally inhomo- geneous media IV, which was held at the Castle of Trest, Czech Republic, May 22-27, 1995. The workshop, which was attended by about 100 seismologists from more than 10 countries, was devoted mainly to the current state of theoretical ...

  • Upper Mantle Heterogeneities from Active and Passive Seismology

    Approximately 20 long-range seismic profiles have been recorded since 1971 in the former USSR, using PNE as sources. The long observational range (>3000 km) provided full penetration of the earth's upper mantle to depths of >600 km giving insight into the 3D structure of the upper mantle. These data are confronted with the requirements ...

  • Natural Physical Sources of Underwater Sound

    The generation of oceanic sound by natural physical mechanisms is a topic of scientific inquiry with a wide range of applications, both environmental and naval. Sound is generated by waves interacting, by waves breaking, by wind noise transmitted directly into, and by rain, snow and spray falling onto the water. Sound is also generated in ...

  • Of Poles and Zeros

    Digital signal processing has become an integral part of observational seismology. Seismic waveforms and the parameters commonly extracted from them are strongly influenced by the effects of numerous filters, both within the earth and within the recording system. With the advent of numerous software tools for the processing of digital ...

  • Mathematical Methods and Modelling in Hydrocarbon Exploration and Production

    Hydrocarbon exploration and production incorporate great technology challenges for the oil and gas industry. In order to meet the world's future demand for oil and gas, further technological advance is needed, which in turn requires research across multiple disciplines, including mathematics, geophysics, geology, petroleum engineering, signal ...

  • Advances in Seismic Event Location

    Advances in Seismic Event Location provides a broad overview of the fundamental issues involved in seismic event location, and presents a variety of state-of-the-art location methods and applications at a wide range of spatial scales. Three important themes in the book are: seismic monitoring for a Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty ...

  • Monitoring the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban-Treaty (CTBT): Source Location

    In September 1996, the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty (CTBT), prohibiting nuclear explosions worldwide, in all environments. The treaty calls for a global verification system, including a network of 321 monitoring stations distributed around the globe, a data communications network, an ...

  • Monitoring the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty: Seismic Event Discrimination and Identification

    In September 1996, the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty (CTBT), prohibiting nuclear explosions worldwide, in all environments. The treaty calls for a global verification system, including a network of 321 monitoring stations distributed around the globe, a data communications network, an ...

  • 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 ...

  • Seismicity Patterns, their Statistical Significance and Physical Meaning

    This volume contains twenty-five research papers on seismicity patterns, their interpretation and their possible relevance to learning how to predict earthquakes. The interpretation of seismicity patterns has become somewhat controversial. Some researchers present case histories suggesting that earthquakes may be predicted by increased seismic ...

  • 2008 Seismic Engineering Conference

    The MERCEA'08 Conference will provide a forum to discuss the state-of-the-art, the best practices and the new research results in the field of earthquake engineering and geotechnics. Both the wide range of covered topics and the high level of its contents, address the Proceedings to researchers and professional engineers involved in structural ...

  • 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 ...

  • Harmonization of Seismic Hazard in Vrancea Zone

    This volume summarizes the main findings of the NATO Science for Peace Project SfP-980468 Harmonization of Seismic Hazard and Risk Reduction in Countries Influenced by Vrancea Earthquakes. It addresses the problems of regional seismic hazard assessment, its application to the Vrancea zone that influences the territories of Romania, Bulgaria, and ...

  • Seismic Wave Propagation and Scattering in the Heterogenous Earth

    Seismic waves – generated both by natural earthquakes and by man-made sources – have produced an enormous amount of information about the Earth's interior. In classical seismology, the Earth is modeled as a sequence of uniform horizontal layers (or sperical shells) having different elastic properties and one determines these properties from travel ...

  • Harmonization of Seismic Hazard in Vrancea Zone

    This volume summarizes the main findings of the NATO Science for Peace Project SfP-980468 Harmonization of Seismic Hazard and Risk Reduction in Countries Influenced by Vrancea Earthquakes. It addresses the problems of regional seismic hazard assessment, its application to the Vrancea zone that influences the territories of Romania, Bulgaria, and ...
