ABSTRACT Geological methods are extremely useful in characterizing earthquake source zones and estimating recurrence intervals . Recent advances
in paleoseismological research have led to various spatial and temporal models
that are ...

This book shows papers from researchers of different countries in the world, that point out the study of seismoinduced phenomena associated with recent and historical earthquakes and also an article about the April 6, 2009 devastating earthquake of L'Aquila in central Italy. Starting from the basical knowledge it is possible to reconstruct the geo-history of the phenomena induced by earthquakes and the own recurrence time. Earthquake geologists study the surface expression of earthquake like faults and ground failure caused by strong ground shaking. Moreover, ground deformation phenomena and other secondary effects such as tectonic subsidence and uplift, liquefaction, shaking-induced landslides, tsunamis and also the migration of hydrogen as protons, can be used to identify earthquakes. Finally, with Paleoseismology, a branch of Earthquake Geology, we can define timing, location and size of prehistoric earthquakes. The collected articles highlight the importance of the geology of the events, in other words all the information recorded in the stratigraphic levels. In fact, only through the reconstruction of the past history we can try to do forecasting for the future, otherwise we can make only prevention. In fact, the knowledge of when, where, how often, and with what magnitude large earthquakes occur is crucial for understanding and characterising the seismic hazard of a region. For this purpose the papers regard the recent progress in the study of recent and past seismic events on the base of the descriptions and analysis of primary effects (surface ruptures) and secondary ones (tsunamis and liquefactions).
Reliable forecasting of destructive earthquakes appears to be an attainable goal
in the light of recent advances in understanding earthquake mechanisms and the
geophysical anomalies that precede earthquakes. However, before prediction ...

It contains both chapters reporting on forefront research as well as review articles. Since the interdisciplinary approach in the earth sciences is increasingly important, the scope of the book is wide with contributions from geology, geophysics, geochemistry and adjacent fields in biology. In a similar spirit, problems dealing with the earth's mantle as well as topics related to shallower levels in the earth and coupled earth-ocean-atmosphere systems are part of this volume. As such it provides a survey of recent advances in a wide range of fields of the earth sciences.

Outstanding advances have been achieved on Earthquake Geotechnical Engineering and Microzonation in the last decade mostly due to the increase in the recorded instrumental in-situ data and large number of case studies conducted in analyzing the observed effects during the recent major earthquakes. During the 15th International Conference on Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering held in Istanbul in August 2001, the Technical Committee of Earthquake Geotechnical Engineering, (TC4) of the International Society of Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering organised a regional seminar on Geotechnical Earthquake Engineering and Microzonation where an effort has been made to present the recent advances in the field by eminent scientists and researchers. The book idea was first suggested by the participants of this seminar. The purpose of this book as well as of the seminar was to present the broad spectrum of earthquake geotechnical engineering and seismic microzonation including strong ground motion, site characterisation, site effects, liquefaction, seismic microzonation, solid waste landfills and foundation engineering. The subject matter requires multidisciplinary input from different fields of engineering seismology, soil dynamics, geotechnical and structural engineering. The chapters in this book are prepared by some of the distinguished lecturers who took part in the seminar supplemented with contributions of few distinguished experts in the field of earthquake geotechnical engineering. The editor would like to express his gratitude to all authors for their interest and efforts in preparing their manuscripts. Without their enthusiasm and support, it would not have been possible to complete this book.

As our study enters local details, however, we must face their geographical
uncertainty, spatial broadness, and even such possibilities as double definition
and transverse displacement during the geological time. These sorts of confusion
