This revised and thoroughly updated edition maintains and develops the two major themes of the first edition. First is 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. Second is 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.

Book Description:

Our understanding of earthquakes and faulting processes has developed significantly since publication of the successful first edition of this book in 1990. This revised edition has therefore been thoroughly up-dated whilst maintaining and developing the major themes of the first edition. Graduate students and research scientists in the fields of seismology, physics, geology, geodesy and rock mechanics will benefit greatly from this book, which provides a unifying framework within which a wide range of faulting phenomena can be interpreted.

Review:

"This thick paperback is fun to read. It brings the reader a thorough and up-to-date overview of the field of faulting and earthquake mechanisms, with ample examples of the theory it explains." The Leading Edge

"Scholz has done the rock mechanics community a real service with this fine volume." Geophysics

"This text is well-illustrated and contains an exhaustive list of references." MCEER Info Service News

"Scholz provides an excellent, succinct discussion of seismic moment. It has extensive well-written descriptions of examples."
Jeffrey R. Keaton

The second major theme is 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. With the inclusion of two chapters explaining brittle fracture and rock friction from first principles, this book is written at a level which will appeal to graduate students and research scientists in the fields of seismology, physics, geology, geodesy and rock mechanics.
