Earthquake Hazard, Risk and Disasters

"Earthquakes pose several hazards to our natural and built environment. The type of hazard depends on the strength of seismic activity, along with such factors as local topographic and built features, subsurface geology and groundwater. A large earthquake will always be followed by a sequence of aftershocks. Most of the hazards to people come from man-made structures themselves and the shaking they receive from the earthquake. The real dangers to people are being crushed in a collapsing building, drowning in a flood caused by a broken dam or levee, getting buried under a landslide, or being burned in a fire. This book presents the latest scientific developments and reviews of research addressing seismic hazard and seismic risk, including causality rates, impacts on society, preparedness, insurance and mitigation. The book is suitable for those interested in earthquake hazard and seismic risk research as well as a more general audience of seismologists, geophysicists and Earth scientists. It is also useful for authorities responsible for public safety and natural hazard mitigation plans and for insurance companies."
