Product Description

The purpose of this book is to get a practical understanding of the most common processing techniques in earthquake seismology. The book deals with manual methods and computer assisted methods. Each topic will be introduced with the basic theory followed by practical examples and exercises. There are manual exercises entirely based on the printed material of the book, as well as computer exercises based on public domain software. Most exercises are computer based. The software used, as well as all test data are available from http://extras.springer.com.

This book is intended for everyone processing earthquake data, both in the observatory routine and in connection with research. Using the exercises, the book can also be used as a basis for university courses in earthquake processing.

Since the main emphasis is on processing, the theory will only be dealt with to the extent needed to understand the processing steps, however references will be given to where more extensive explanations can be found.

• Exercises
• Test data 
• Public domain software (SEISAN)

Editorial Review

Product Description

In recent years, the increased availability and fidelity of broadband seismic instruments have effectively narrowed the gap between exploration and global seismic applications. Global seismologists are now able to take advantage of high-resolution, often exploration-based, tools to examine rock properties tens to hundreds of kilometers below surface. This book reviews the key assumptions, algorithms and prospects of several important array-based methods in today’s global and regional seismic surveys. A short list of topics includes data migration, PP and SS precursors, Radon transform, mantle triplication, P-to-S and S-to-P converted waves, shear-wave splitting, high-resolution seismic tomography, and ambient-noise interferometry. Each approach is presented in a ‘cookbook’ fashion for easy comparison, implementation and critique by the general readership.

Editorial Review

Product Description
Understanding submarine fan and turbidite systems has been a major quest of geologists and geophysicists for decades. Historically important as reservoirs of vast quantities of hydrocarbons, recent advances in technology have dramatically improved our ability to examine these sand and mud bodies. Unfortunately, this prolifer- ation of data has made it difficult for geoscientists to examine all the aspects of these important systems. Weimer and Link have addressed this problem by compiling twenty-three key papers, discussing current examination techniques, and reviewing the important geological and geophysical characteristics of both ancient and modern fan and turbidite systems. ...

Product Description
This interesting book uses plate tectonics as its central theme; it acquaints readers with California geology. Basic principles in the beginning of the book and tables of highlights for each province enable the reader to understand the whole picture of catastrophic national disasters, California history, mining methods, and societal impacts; it brings the lessons of geology closer to the everyday context of California life.After a comprehensive overview of the basic principles of geology, this book then focuses on the geological highlights of California (young volcanoes, deserts, the Mojave Desert, the Sierra Nevada, the Klamath Mountains, water, the Great Valley, the coast Ranges, earthquakes, faults, and seismic safety, the transverse ranges, and the peninsular ranges). The inside back and front covers of the book contain a wealth of readily available information, with comprehensive geologic, fault, relief, and mountain range maps.A handy desk reference for geologists, this book is also a source of information for anyone interested in the evolution of California's terrain. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Worth it
This book gets me through the California Supplemental Examination for my PG. It is easy to read and understand (if you are a geologist), without making the book less the substance.

I like how Harden pictures one geologic event. The examples of places names are a familiar one, thus (if you live long enough in California) you can relate to them.

It is definitely one to keep.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Condition
The book arrived fast and in great condition. Seller was very nice and notified me when item would be shipped. I would order from this seller again.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Primer
As an amateur geologist, living part-time in CA, this book is an excellent primer that goes over the basics of that great state.

5-0 out of 5 stars The ONLY up-to-date textbook on California geology
Deborah Hardin's textbook on California geology is superior to all previous texts inasmuch as she is the first to utilize the theory of plate tectonics to provide a unified framework for her overall exposition. Instead of being bombarded with an encyclopedic but chaotic assemblage ofrock types and unconnected microprocesses, the reader is treated to aconsistent and comprehensive picture of how California came to be thathangs together remarkably well.

Harden utilized the recent research ofcountless other geologists to put together this book, and her hard work haspaid off.She includes several chapters that provide a conceptual overviewof geologic principles, then goes on in successive sections to describe howvarious forces and processes related ultimately to plate tectonics havebeen responsible for the evolution of various distinctive landforms andgeomorphic regions of California.She also includes a final chapter thatis a stand-alone summary version of the "geological history ofCalifornia."Throughout the book, she makes clear again and again howa clear understanding of the various ways that tectonic plates can interactis absolutely fundamental to understanding how California has come intoexistence over the past several hundred million years.It's a fascinatingstory, and Harden's text will help anyone willing to read carefully andstudy a bit to learn the basics of California geology.

As an added bonus,Harden has included several sections that are linked to present-dayenvironmental hazards, most notably those related to the constant threat ofearthquakes in the Golden State.Such information is, of course linkeddirectly to the geology of the state that she has described and explainedso well.

The illustrations and diagrams re not terribly elaborate, butthey are helpful and reasonably plentiful.Also included are somesmall-sized versions of the standard California geology and fault maps.

The main drawback to this publication is its astronomical price.Thisis hardly Harden's fault, however, as high prices seem to be theunfortunate standard for college textbooks these days. ... Read more

Product Description
This radical revision of Professor Bullen's acclaimed and widely used text provides an introduction to modern seismological theory, with emphasis on both the physical models and the mathematical descriptions of earthquakes and their sources. The essential core of the earlier editions has been retained, particularly the tensor treatment of elasticity, seismic wave travel-time analysis and density in the Earth, although these parts of the text have been brought up to date and expanded. The new part of the book reflects on how the study of earthquakes, seismic waves and seismic risk has been broadened in the past two decades. Thus, this edition includes introductory theory of earthquake sources, seismic wave travel through complex geological zones and viscous and anisotropic media, vibrations of the whole Earth, strong-motion seismology and earthquake prediction and risk. There is an emphasis on statistical and numerical procedures and problems of resolution in inverse theory. Modern class exercises are to be found throughout. The book assumes some background in classical physics and mathematics, including simple differential equations, linear algebra and probability theory. It will be suitable for use in undergraduate courses in geophysics, applied mechanics and geotechnology and for graduate courses in seismology and earthquake engineering. In addition, it will serve as a reference text on seismological problems for professionals concerned with earthquakes, Earth structure and wave motion. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars An excellent introduction to seismology
I used this book to learn seismology as a graduate student not in geophysics.It is an excellent introductory text and is a distilled version of Aki/Richards.This book assumes you have a decently strong physics/math background.It is a very clear presentation of the material and doesn't go into all of the full out derivations that more advanced Seismology texts do.You will however come out with a solid understanding of nearly all of the topics in more advanced books so it is definitely recommended. Lay and Wallace know their stuff.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great book for upper-level undergrads and first-year grads.
Covers a huge breadth of topics in seismology, is written simply, has great diagrams from important papers ad books, and it's easy to find what you're looking for.I still use it for a reference occasionally, and I'm a 2nd year PhD student.No, it doesn't have the mathematical rigor of Aki and Richards, but when you're just starting out, or if you're more of an observational seismologist than a theoretical seismologist (like me) that can be a relief.

4-0 out of 5 stars A serious introduction to global seismology
The Lay & Wallace provides a good starting description of global seismology. Chapter 1 deals with the historical development and the topics of global seismology. Chapter 2 concerns elasticity and seismic waves. The concepts of strain and stress are introduced. The mathematical content is limited (all you have to know is the partial derivatives) and a lot of figures help you to understand. By the way, this book uses the same boxes as the Aki & Richards to focus on a particular point. The equation of motion and the wave equations are derived.
Chapter 3 deals with Body waves and ray theory.The eikonal equation is introduced,and the body of this chapter concerns travel time propagation, partitioning of energy at a boundary,wave attenuation and scattering in really simple terms. Once again, a lot of figures and documents help the understanding.
Chapter 4 focuses on surface waves and free oscillations and starts with free-surface interactions, Rayleigh and Love waves and their dispersion. Tsunamis are also considered, with only two equations but 6 figures and documents. The end of the chapter is devoted to free oscillations of the earth with once again a lot of documents.
Chapter 5 deals with seismometry, that is what are the instruments used in seismology. This chapter provides differents maps of global networks of seismometers. Chapter 6 considers seismogram interpretation (identification of seismic phases). This is applied to source location. The concept of inversion is introduced with no big deal of maths. The end of the chapter concerns then the generalized inverse and requires more maths. Chapter 7 concerns the determination of Earth structure, and appears in continuity with the previous chapter. No less than 56 figures plus documents are provided to help the understanding of the earth's structure. Seismic tomography is described in simple terms. Then each "layer" of the earth is characterized in terms of seismology.
Chapter 8 focuses on seismic sources, and introduces equivalent body forces, elastostatics, elastodynamics in a very simple way. The seismic moment tensor is introduced here.
Chapter 9 deals with earthquake cinematics and dynamics. It describes the classical 1D Haskell source, the source spetrum. The concepts of stress drop, particle velocity and rupture velocity are explicited. The end of the chapter is devoted to magnitude scales, seismic energy, aftershocks, and the scaling relations of earthquakes.
Chapter 10 tackles the problem of waveform modeling. Finally Chapter 11 deals with seismotectonics and provides plenty of interesting documents.

This book provides an excellent overview of global seismology. It should be extremely useful to teachers (valuable source of documents for your class) and also for those who want to start seismology. Additional reading will be necessary, eventually.

4-0 out of 5 stars a very complete seismological book
This is an excellent book in seismology. It covers all modern aspects of this science in a complete way. The main advantage for both undergraduate and graduate students in using this book is that the Mathematical aspects are treatised without heaviness.

5-0 out of 5 stars Reference book for current seismology
Lay & Wallace is an excellent blend of theory and observation.Enough equations to get you started, but not the overwhelming number you see in other theoretical seismology volumes. The best part is the reprinting ofimportant result figures from scattered scientific journals. It iswonderful to have all these in one place. The major missing material is atreatment of computational aspects. I hope they put out new editions everyfew years with new figures from the journals. ... Read more
