Pre–Earthquake Processes

A Multidisciplinary Approach to Earthquake Prediction Studies

Pre–earthquake signals are advanced warnings of a large seismic event. A better understanding of these processes can help to predict the characteristics of the subsequent mainshock. Pre–Earthquake Processes: A Multidisciplinary Approach to Earthquake Prediction Studies presents the latest research on earthquake forecasting and prediction based on observations and physical models in China, Greece, Italy, France, Japan, Russia, Taiwan, and the United States.

Volume highlights:

  • Describes the earthquake processes and the physical signals that precede them
  • Explores the relationship between pre–earthquake activity and subsequent seismic events
  • Encompasses physical, atmospheric, geochemical, and historical characteristics of pre–earthquakes
  • Illustrates thermal infrared, seismo ionospheric, and other satellite and ground–based pre–earthquake anomalies
  • Applies these multidisciplinary data to earthquake forecasting and prediction

Written for seismologists, geophysicists, geochemists, physical scientists, students and others, Pre–Earthquake Processes: A Multidisciplinary Approach to Earthquake Prediction Studies offers an essential resource for understanding the dynamics of pre–earthquake phenomena from an international and multidisciplinary perspective.
