About this book

Proceedings of the NATO Advanced Research Workshop on Earthquake Monitoring and Seismic Hazard Mitigation in Balkan Countries, Borovetz, Bulgaria, 11-18 September 2005.

With the Balkans being Europe's most earthquake-prone region, this much-needed collection of the latest research in the field provides an account of past, present and likely future seismological developments in Balkan countries.

It also offers various kinds of network operations on local to global scales.

Station and network operations require near real-time record analysis and topics dealt with here include 2-D signal detectors, epicenter location and earthquake monitoring.

The Balkans are the most seismically active part of Europe due to multiple plate interactions in the Aegean Sea. The tectonic evolution and on-going geodynamic deformations are described in 2 articles.

Earthquake hazard analysis and topographic site effects are discussed, as are large earthquake hazards in the Aegean and the Marmara seas.

The book also examines the practical applications of such procedures.
