9780124406582: International Handbook of Earthquake & Engineering Seismology, Part B: Pt. B (International Geophysics)

The two volume "International Handbook of Earthquake and Engineering Seismology" represents the International Association of Seismology and Physics of the Earth's Interior's (IASPEI) ambition to provide a comprehensive overview of our present knowledge of earthquakes and seismology. This state-of-the-art work is the only reference to cover all aspects of seismology - a 'resource library' for civil and structural engineers, geologists, geophysicists, and seismologists in academia and industry around the globe. Part B, by more than 100 leading researchers from major institutions of science around the globe, features 34 chapters detailing strong-motion seismology, earthquake engineering, quake prediction and hazards mitigation, as well as detailed reports from more than 40 nations. The book includes chapters and CD-ROM-based content detailing practical resources for seismologists, including additional materials from the printed chapters, a compilation of earthquake catalogs around the world, a global earthquake database with search and display software, selected software for earthquake and engineering seismology, and digital imagery of faults, earthquakes, volcanoes and their effects. Also available is "The International Handbook of Earthquake and Engineering Seismology", Part A. The book includes: authoritative articles by more than 100 leading scientists; extensive glossary of terminology and more than 200 biographical sketches of notable seismologists; and, two CD-ROMs.

Review:

"Monumental in scope, authoritative in treatment, and historic in impact, the International Handbook of Earthquake and Engineering Seismology will be the most important source book for seismology and its applications for years to come. This is one of those exceptional books that libraries and professionals from academia, industry, and government cannot do without." -Frank Press, President Emeritus, US National Academy of Sciences "The International Handbook of Earthquake & Engineering Seismology is an impressive and comprehensive collection of articles by leaders in their fields. It is sure to be a valuable resource for students, research workers and practitioners who need a broad, reliable and up-to-date source of information and knowledge in seismological fields. -George W. Houser, Professor Emeritus, California Institute of Technology "...of great interest to practicing engineers and researchers alike...a highly valuable source of helpful information for years to come in enhancing public and industrial safety worldwide." -William J. Hall, Professor Emeritus of Civil Engineering, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign "Great credit goes to the Editors for attracting...the most experienced and highly regarded experts from more than 50 countries to participate in this comprehensive and truly international work. It covers not only the history of our science, but leads to the present day frontiers of our knowledge." -Hans Berckhemer, Past President of IASPEI, from the Foreword "a unique reference work that utilizes modern computer technology to supplement the printed information. It provides data sets (e.g. catalogs of world earthquakes) that cannot be found anywhere else...[a] magnum opus of seismology." -Cinna Lomnitz for "Natural Hazards"
