9783319217529: Earthquakes and Their Impact on Society (Springer Natural Hazards)

This book provides an integrated approach to the assessment of seismic hazards. The reduction of losses expected by future earthquakes is probably the most important contribution of seismology to society. Large earthquakes occurred in densely populated areas highlight the dramatic inadequacy of a massive portion of the buildings demonstrating the high risks of modern industrial societies. Building earthquake-resistant structures and retrofitting old buildings on a national scale can be extremely expensive and can represent an economic challenge even for developed western countries. Earthquakes can cause also several psychological problems due to the fact that such kind of disasters will result in casualties, collapsing of houses, strategic buildings and facilities and deeply affect a community. Moreover in our society it is necessary to properly plan emergency responses and rescues taking into account any possible secondary effect in order to avoid more casualties.

Review:

Selected by Choice magazine as an "Outstanding Academic Title" for 2016

“This encyclopedic volume is the most up-to-date compilation of systematic scientific knowledge on earthquakes in the Mediterranean and the southern Asian/Pacific seismic zones. ... Exemplary illustrations (many in color) include numerous photographs of earthquake damage and geologic maps of areas affected by earthquakes. Charts, tables, and engineering drawings are outstandingly educational. All seismic scientists, engineers, historians, and geographers should always have this useful volume at hand. Summing Up: Essential. Lower-division undergraduates through professionals and practitioners.” (T. L. T. Grose, Choice, Vol. 54 (3), November, 2016)
