About this book

The 30th International Geological Congress was held in Beijing, China in August 1997. Leading scientists convened to present their findings and views to the international geological research community. Volume 5 of 26 focuses on contemporary lithospheric motion and seismic geology. All articles in the proceedings have been refereed and keynote papers have been included in Volume 1. These proceedings aim to present a view of contemporary geology and should be of interest to researchers in the geological sciences.


On global tectonics and its dynamics, Ma Zongjin; active faults and recent geodynamics of Eurasia, V. Trifonov et al; some remarks on seismotectonics and geodynamics of the Chinese continent, Ye Hong et al; crustal dynamics in the north and east margin of Qing-Zang (Tibet) Plateau, Xie Furen et al; evidence of neotectonic activity in the South Carolina coastal plain, P. Talwani and R.T. Marple; Adriatic slab versus Tyrrhenian lithosphere (in the Mediterranean puzzle) - new suggestions for an old problem, M. Bernabini et al; active fault geometry and kinematics in Greece - the Thessaloniki (Ms=6.5, 1978) and Kozani-Grevena (Ms=6.6, 1995) earthquakes - two case studies, S. Pavlides et al; geomorphic evidence for irregular faulting along the north piedmont of Liulengshan Range, Shanxi rift system, China, Xu Xiwei et al; seismic potential along the main active strike-slip fault zone in western Sichuan, China, Wen Xueze; Karakorum fault and its geodynamics, Zheng Jiandong; summary of historic faults in Taiwan, Ming-Sheng Yu et al; 1995 Hyogoken-Nanbu (Kobe) earthquake and urban active faults, Takao Miyata et al; geodynamic model for midcontinent resurgent activity and instability of India Shield, G.C. Naik et al; volcanic phenomena in the Iwo-jima Island, Norio Yoshida; on the application of the M8 algorithm to New Zealand earthquake data, D. Vere-Jones et al; load/unload response ratio theory (LURR) - a new approach to prediction of earthquakes and other geological disasters, Yin Xiangchun et al; CN algorithm in Italy - intermediate-term earthquake prediction and seismotectonic model validation, G. Costa et al; spatial distribution of anomalies in different stages before an earthquake, Ma Jin et al; an experimental study on deformation of en-echelon faults and seismicity, Ma Shengli et al; temperature measurements along simulated faults during seismic fault motion, Akito Tsutsumi and Toshihiko Shimamoto; brief review and preliminary proposal for the use of ground effects in the macroseismic intensity assessment, E.
