About this book

Up-dated revised edition maintaining and developing the two major themes of the first edition. These are; the connection between fault and earthquake mechanics, including fault scaling laws, the nature of fault populations, and how these result from the processes of fault growth and interaction; and the central role of the rate-state friction laws in earthquake mechanics, which provide a unifying framework within which a wide range of faulting phenomena can be interpreted.

Contents

Preface; 1. Brittle fracture of rock; 2. Rock friction; 3. Mechanics of faulting; 4. Mechanics of earthquakes; 5. The seismic cycle; 6. Seismotectonics; 7. Earthquake prediction and hazard analysis; References; Index.

'Scholz has been a key player in earthquake and fault mechanics for at least 30 years. This is his broad perspective of the whole subject and is likely to remain the most important textbook in the area for some time.' Journal of Geological Magazine '! included ! chapters on brittle fracture and rock friction ! provide geologists a foundation for understanding the subsequent discussions on fault and earthquake mechanics.'
