Earthquakes and Multi-hazards Around the Pacific Rim, Vol. II

Earthquakes and Multi-hazards Around the Pacific Rim, Vol. II By Charles A. Williams
English | PDF | 2018 (2019 Edition) | 205 Pages | ISBN : 3319922963 | 47.14 MB

This is the second of two volumes devoted to earthquakes and multi-hazards around the Pacific Rim. The circum-Pacific seismic belt is home to roughly 80% of the world’s largest earthquakes, making it the ideal location for investigating earthquakes and related hazards such as tsunamis and landslides. Following the Introduction, this volume includes 14 papers covering a range of topics related to multi-hazards. The book is divided into five sections: viscoelastic deformation, earthquake source models, earthquake prediction, seismic hazard assessment, and tsunami simulation.

Living Under the Threat of Earthquakes: Short and Long-term Management of Earthquake Risks and Damage Prevention in Nepal By Jörn H. Kruhl
English | PDF,EPUB | 2017 (2018 Edition) | 335 Pages | ISBN : 3319680439 | 18.74 MB

This book addresses earthquakes, with a special focus on the Ghorka earthquake, which struck parts of central Nepal in April 2015. Drawing on this disastrous event, it closely examines various aspects of earthquakes in contributions prepared by international experts. The topics covered include: the geological and geophysical background of seismicity; a detailed inventory of the damage done by the earthquake; effective damage prevention through earthquake-safe buildings and settlements; restoration options for world-heritage buildings; strategies for providing technical and medical relief and, lastly, questions associated with public life and economy in a high-risk seismic zone.
