9780195078275: Geology of Earthquakes

The first modern treatment of purposes, methods, and principles of the geological investigation of earthquakes draws upon examples from many seismically active regions of the globe, including China, Japan, the Mediterranean countries, the U.S., and New Zealand. The Geology of Earthquakes will be useful to engineers, geophysicists, and planners, in addition to geologists, and will be an aid to the geotechnical community as well as to graduate and advanced undergraduate students. The first several chapters of the book include introductions to plate tectonics, structural geology, seismic waves, geodesy, Quaternary geochronological methods, and tectonic geomorphology. These serve as a common interdisciplinary background for the second half of the text, which divides the discussion of earthquakes according to tectonic environment: strike-slip, divergent, and convergent. Earthquake environments from the globe are amply illustrated with photographs, maps, and cross- sections. Case histories of recent, well-studied earthquakes demonstrate the interdisciplinary nature of earthquake science. Personal vignettes of early pioneers such as Charles Darwin, G.K. Gilbert, Bunjiro Koto, and Alexander McKay illustrate early historical milestones in earthquake geology. The final chapters of the book are devoted to secondary effects such as liquefaction, seismically induced landslides and tsunamis, and to the use of earthquake geology in earthquake hazard assessment. A glossary of terms, an extensive bibliography, and a comprehensive reference table of more than 300 historical earthquakes accompanied by surface faulting appear at the end of the text.

Robert S. Yeats is at Oregon State University. Clarence R. Allen is at California Institute of Technology.

Review:

"A descriptive book which, without the use of mathematical modeling, presents an excellent description of earthquakes. I am sure I will make use of it and recommend it to colleagues in professional practice."--Michael Constantinou, Ph.D, SUNY Buffalo

"Exceedingly clear. Thorough up-to-date coverage. Excellent photographs and diagrams. Very good section about environmental aspects."--Charles H. V. Ebert, SUNY Buffalo

"A very needed book. Covers the field with up to date material without getting tangled in the details of seismic techniques."--Robert A. Phinney, Princeton University

"The Geology of Earthquakes is an excellent text because of the breadth of subjects it covers and because it contains abundant references that provide easy access to the relevant technical literature. For these same reasons, the book is also a superb resource for practicing professionals
interested in all aspects of earthquake science, engineering, and hazards."--Anthony J. Crone, Seismological Research Letters

"Robert Yeats and Kerry Sieh provide masterful overviews of the major faulting regimes of Earth, full of the insight and perspective gained from their lifetimes as students of the Earth's curious tendency to release a small proportion of its internal heat energy in brittle, stick-slip
fashion."--Arch C. Johnson, GSA Today

"This book is useful both as a text book for graduate-level college courses and as a reference for the geotechnical and earthquake hazard community. ...it successfully fills a niche between structural geology and classic seismology texts. ...a professionally written, comprehensive source of
information on the field of earthquake geology."--Eric L. Geist, Pure and Applied Geophysics

"I can only say that this book is simply magnificent. In addition to a truly global perspective on earthquakes and their effects, it has an impressively broad coverage of geology in general. The text is always clear and readable, the layout easy to follow, and the illustrations clear,
detailed, and thoroughly annotated."--William R. Green, The Leading Edge

"Very fine publication. Topics, illustrations, and references all provide high quality information and perspectives."--Ray Brodersen, Western Oregon State College

"A super treatment for either upper-division undergraduates or graduate students involved in tectonics or solid earth geophysics courses."--John D. Pigott, University of Oklahoma
