Paleoseismology

Paleoseismology has become an important component of seismic risk analysis, which is mandated for nuclear power plants, dams, waste repositories, and other critical structures. This book is the first in the English language to be devoted solely to paleoseismology. It summarizes the development of the field from the 1960s to the present, encompassing material that is currently widely dispersed in journal articles. * Includes a comprehensive review of the techniques currently used in paleoseismology * Emphasizes practical methods of data collection and field studies * Covers interpretation of field data based on current theory concerning fault segmentation and recurrence cycles * Contains more than 170 line drawings and 50 photographs of paleoseismic phenomena

The historical and geological record indicate that the earthquake hazard in south-western British Columbia is relatively high. This bulletin presents results of a major paleoseismological investigation consisting of several related interdisciplinary studies that extend the seismic record of the region into prehistory. Three introductory sections contain background material on the region's geologic and tectonic setting, earthquake sources, historical seismicity, and research methods used. This is followed by four sections summarizing paleoseismological research on the following indicators of possible past earthquakes:

"This volume focuses on the continental intraplate region of the United States and provides an update and overview of documented Quaternary faulting and paleoseismic liquefaction east of the Rocky Mountains, and of the application of these results to seismic hazard and risk assessments. Contributions include papers that describe zones of newly recognized Quaternary deformation such as the East Tennessee Seismic Zone, as well as reinterpretations of well-known areas such as the New Madrid Seismic Zone. The chapters make important contributions

With a balance of theory and practical applications, Tectonic Geomorphology of Mountains is essential reading for research geologists and upper-level undergraduate and graduate students in the earth sciences. This book describes how tectonic events influence geomorphic processes and explores how landscapes respond to tectonic deformation in the ways in which they are weathered, washed, and abraded Uses new approaches to enhance theoretical models of landscape evolution and to solve practical problems such as the assessment of earthquake hazards Includes previously

We present results from a new paleoseismic trench site on the Clark strand of the San Jacinto Fault Zone (SJFZ) in Clark Lake, western Salton Trough, southern California. The trench results suggest that most late Holocene slip along the Clark fault at Clark Lake is localized within a narrow zone, as there are no significant faults in trenches excavated across two other lineaments where faults have been mapped. We have identified up to ten past surface ruptures that have occurred
