About this book

Intraplate earthquakes occur away from tectonic plate boundaries: their locations are difficult to predict, risking huge damage and loss of life. The 2001 Bhuj earthquake (featured in Intraplate Earthquakes) was the largest intraplate earthquake for three decades and has provided unique insight into these events. This cutting-edge book brings together research from international leading experts in the field. Each chapter provides a comprehensive review of these earthquakes in a different global location, ranging from Australia, China, India and the Sea of Japan, to Western Europe, Brazil, New Madrid (Central USA), and Eastern Canada. They explore similarities and differences between regional features and the mechanical models required to explain them, as well as assessing geophysical techniques used to investigate them. Providing the first global overview of intraplate earthquakes, this is an essential book for academic researchers and professionals in seismology, tectonics, tectonophysics, geodesy, structural geology, earthquake dynamics, geophysics, and structural engineering.

Biography

Pradeep Talwani is a Distinguished Emeritus Professor of Geophysics in the Department of Earth and Ocean Sciences at the University of South Carolina. He has over 30 years' experience researching intraplate earthquakes, particularly in the Eastern US and Canada, and is a leading authority on the largest intraplate earthquake to strike the Eastern US in recorded history, the 1886 event at Charleston, South Carolina. Professor Talwani served as Director of the South Carolina Seismic Network from 1990 until 2009, when he retired, and is a Fellow of the Geological Society of America.
