View all copies of this ISBN edition:
 
 

This book presents an innovative new approach to studying source mechanisms of earthquakes, combining theory and observation in a unified methodology, with a key focus on the mechanics governing fault failures. It explains source mechanisms by building from fundamental concepts such as the equations of elasticity theory to more advanced problems including dislocation theory, kinematic models and fracture dynamics. The theory is presented first in student-friendly form using consistent notation throughout, and with full, detailed mathematical derivations that enable students to follow each step. Later chapters explain the widely-used practical modelling methods for source mechanism determination, linking clearly to the theoretical foundations, and highlighting the processing of digital seismological data. Providing a unique balance between application techniques and theory, this is an ideal guide for graduate students and researchers in seismology, tectonophysics, geodynamics and geomechanics, and a valuable practical resource for professionals working in seismic hazard assessment and seismic engineering.

Book Description:

Presents an innovative new approach to studying source mechanisms, combining theory and observation in a unified methodology, and highlighting processing of seismological digital data and cutting-edge computer methods. An ideal guide for graduate students, researchers and professionals in seismology, tectonophysics, geodynamics, geomechanics, seismic hazard assessment and seismic engineering.

About the Author:

Agustín Udías is Emeritus Professor at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid (UCM). He is the author of many papers about seismicity, seismotectonics of the Azores-Gibraltar, and the physics of seismic sources, and has also written several textbooks including Principles of Seismology (Cambridge University Press, 1999). Professor Udías has served as Editor-in-Chief of Física de la Tierra and the Journal of Seismology, and earlier as the Vice-President of the European Seismological Commission. He is a member of the Accademia Europeae, the Seismological Society of America, the American Geophysical Union, amongst other societies, and is a Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society.
