About this book

With basic knowledge, it is possible to reconstruct the geo-history of the phenomena induced by earthquakes. Earthquake geologists study the surface expression of earthquake-like faults and ground failures caused by strong ground shaking. Moreover, ground deformation phenomena and other secondary effects can also be used. With Paleoseismology, a branch of earthquake geology, the timing, location, and size of prehistoric earthquakes can be defined.

Researchers from countries around the world have contributed to this book, shedding light on studies of seismoinduced phenomena associated with recent and historical earthquakes.
