About this book

Language: Bilingual in English and Chinese

Based on a comprehensive study of earlier data and a large number of geological field surveys, this book uses maps and photos to form a realistic picture of the terrain of the eastern Tibetan plateau and shows a rapid change as a result of seismic and geologic disasters. Subjects include the regional seismic geological background, the Longmen Shan and adjacent tectonic belt fracture, its characteristic, and typical activities, the 5.12 Wenchuan earthquake and April 14 Yushu earthquake, surface rupture characteristics, typical geological characteristics of earthquake-induced disasters in recent years, and so on.

Summary in Chinese:
Forming Backgrounds of Earthquake-Induced Geohazards in the Eastern Marginal Zone of the Tibetan Plateau, 数据青藏高原东部地震地质灾害成灾背景》在综合研究前人资料和大量野外地质调查资料的基础上,采用以图件和照片为主的形式,以写实的手法展示了青藏高原东部地形急变带地震地质灾害及其成灾背景方面的成果。主要包括:区域地震地质背景、龙门山及邻近构造带典型活动断裂特征、“5·12”汶川地震和“4·14”玉树地震地表破裂特征、近年来强烈地震诱发的典型地质灾害特征等,是探索青藏高原东部内外动力地质作用耦合成灾机理以及活动构造带地质灾害早期识别的第一手学术资料。
