Contents Machine generated contents note: earthquake early warning system for the Romanian capital -- combined geophysical/engineering approach for the seismic safety of long-span bridges -- Finite-difference simulations of the 1927 Jericho earthquake -- Nonlinear seismology -- the seismology of the XXI century -- Small-scale mantle plumes : imaging and geodynamic aspects -- Structure of the upper mantle beneath northern Eurasia derived from Russian deep-seismic PNE profiles -- True amplitudes : a challenge in reflection seismology -- Imaging of orebodies with vertical seismic profiling data -- Dead Sea Fault and its effect on civilization -- Velocity field of the Aegean-Anatolian region from 3D finite element models -- Monitoring of slab detachment in the Carpathians
Summary The core of this book is based on the unique cooperation between earth scientists and civil engineers working in the field of strong earthquakes in the Vrancea region of Rumania and the capital city Bucharest. It goes on to review the results of deep seismic tomography from mantel pumes, deep lithospehric properties from Russian nuclear explosion data and high -resolution imaging in seismics. Finally, the third part of this book focusses on the effect of tectonics on plate motions and civilisation
