This book is the first in the English language to be devoted solely to paleoseismology. Paleoseismology (the study of "ancient" earthquakes) has become an important component of seismic risk analysis, which is mandated for nuclear power plants, dams, waste repositories, and other critical structures.

This book is the first in the English language to be devoted solely to paleoseismology. It summarizes the development of the field from the s to the present, encompassing 5/5(1). "The book is a major revision and expansion of the first edition of In effect, a reader is in possession of a wise and comprehensive review of field techniques of data collection and interpretation, applicable to current seismic risk analysis and seismic hazard assessment/5(2).

Given the tremendous toll in human lives and attendant economic losses, it is appropriate that scientists are working hard to understand better earthquakes, with the aim of forecasting and, ultimately, predicting them. In the last decades increasing attention has been paid to the coseismic effects on the natural environment, creating a solid base of empirical data for the estimation of source.

Edition by K Reicherter (Author), A M Michetti (Author), P G Silva (Author) & 0 moreAuthor: K Reicherter. The aim of paleoseismology is to generate a record of past earthquakes (i.e., magnitude, recurrence interval, timing, etc.) from a range of geological observables preserved within a landscape.

This is achieved by identifying features associated with a single paleoearthquake as opposed to the long-term deformation along a fault or within a basin.

Earthquakes are one of the greatest natural hazards humans face. During the twentieth century alone, over two million people died during strong ground shaking, attendant fires, tsunamis and landslides.

Paleoseismology is a subdiscipline of the broader fields of neotectonics, active tectonics, and earthquake geology (Yeats et al., ; Burbank and Anderson, ; Keller and Pinter, ; Bull, ; McCalpin and Nelson, ).Paleoseismology differs from these more general studies of the deformation of Earth’s crust during the past few million years in its focus on the almost instantaneous.

Archaeoseismology is the study of past earthquakes deriving from the analysis of archaeological analyses reveal information about seismic events that have not been historically recorded.

Such data can also help to document seismic risk in areas subject to extremely destructive earthquakes. Inan international conference held in Athens marked the beginning of modern research in. U.S. Geological Survey, Central Avenue, Suite 2, Mail StopMemphis, Tennessee,USA.

Paleoseismology is a subdiscipline within the much broader fields of neotectonics, active tectonics, and earthquake geology (Figure and Table ). Paleoseismology adapts many concepts from seismology, structural geology, and tectonics, but its field methods and techniques are derived primarily from Quaternary geology and related disciplines, such as geomorphology, soil mechanics Cited by: 9.

"Ancient earthquakes are pre-instrumental earthquakes that can only be identified through indirect evidence in the archaeological (archaeoseismology) and geological (palaeoseismology) record.
