  • Analysis of fault block movement by the 1995 Kobe earthquake
  • Earthquake ; Fault ; Honshu ; Japan ; Marine terrace ; Seismicity ; Strike-slip fault ; Tectonics ; Vertical movement
  • Horizontal ground displacement associated with the 1995 Kobe earthquake reflects the developmental process of a block mountain under tectonic E-W compression. The focal mechanism of the earthquake is of the strike-slip type. Surface faults specify
  • the block boundaries. Comparison of the tilting obtained from levelling of benchmarks with the dated marine terraces on one fault block yields a recurrence period of the earthquake of approximately 500 years. The result is in harmony with historical records
  • for a series of earthquakes affecting the area concerned, including the 1995 earthquake.
  • Earthquake-related geomorphic environment and pond sediment information
  • Accumulation rate ; Earthquake ; Honshu ; Interannual variability ; Japan ; Lacustrine sedimentation ; Lake ; Landslide ; Mountain ; Years 1990-99
  • Two sediment traps were placed on the bed of the pond in May 1995, after the earthquake, in order to investigate earthquake-related changes in erosion, transportation and sedimentation that may have been recorded in the lake sediments. Six years
  • after the earthquake there were no marked surface movements related to the earthquake, even though the sedimentation rates had increased slightly. A new steady state for the structure of the earthquake-modified surface had evidently been reached.
  • Boulder trail from a subglacial earthquake, Äspö, Sweden
  • Cold area ; Deglaciation ; Earthquake ; Fault ; Palaeogeography ; Sweden
  • A subglacial earthquake has been defined by a palaeoseismic boulder trail and associated primary and secondary fault and fracture structures. It occurred a few years before final deglaciation, which occurred some 12,000 years BP. A palaeoseismic
  • boulder trail from a subglacial earthquake represents a new type of palaeoseismic phenomenon not previously described.
  • Bursts of aftershocks, long-term precursors of strong earthquakes
  • Earthquakes that are followed within a short time by abnormally large numbers of aftershocks are hypothesised to be long-term precursors of strongers earthquakes. In a test of the hypothesis, 18 out of 23 strong earthquakes, in five regions
  • Assessment of the earthquake vulnerability of multi-residential buildings in Slovenia
  • Architecture ; Earthquake ; Natural hazards ; Slovenia ; Vulnerability
  • The paper assesses the earthquake vulnerability of multi-residential buildings in Slovenia, although it is limited to the buildings that were built before 1981, in the time when the earthquake building codes were much less elaborated than today
  • . In the paper, based on the building completion year, buildings are classified into different time periods, which are characterized by important historical events and bigger changes in earthquake building codes. - (L'A.).
  • Two surveys for taking measures to cope with the coming earthquake to the Tokyo metropolis
  • Catastrophe ; Earthquake ; Environmental management ; Japan ; Natural hazards ; Regional planning ; Thematic mapping ; Tokyo
  • Because Tokyo has a greater probability now than ever of being hit by another major earthquake, the Tokyo Metropolitan Government has carried out two surveys for taking measures to cope with it; earthquake vulnerability assessment and earthquake
  • Could the coseismic fractures of a lake ice reflect the earthquake mechanisms? (Afyon earthquakes of 2 March 2002, Central Anatolia, Turkey)
  • Anatolia ; Earthquake ; Fracture ; Ice ; Lake ; Turkey
  • earthquakes (2002).
  • Faulty construction : earthquakes and the culture of prevention in California
  • Adaptation ; California ; Earthquake ; Natural hazards ; Preventive measure ; Risk perception ; United States of America ; Urban construction
  • The study of earthquakes and aseismic building construction evolved with each new earthquake. Fallen and standing structures were studied. Chasing earthquakes became a way of life for some investigators, as they gained confidence that they could
  • Managua rebuilds a city from earthquake ruins
  • Historic ground failures in northern California associated with earthquakes
  • Earthquake risk management pilot project in Quito, Ecuador
  • Urban hazards and risks; consequences of large eruptions and earthquakes
  • Earthquake ; Ecuador ; Geotechnics ; Natural hazards ; Plate tectonics ; Preventive measure ; Quito ; Urban administration ; Urban area ; Vulnerability
  • An earthquake risk management project was conducted in Quito (Ecuador), consisting of evaluating the consequences of destructive earthquakes on the city. After choosing seismogenic sources that can affect the city, on historical and seismotectonics
  • bases, intensities produced by these events were calculated, in order to estimate damages to the buildings and city networks. The impact on life in Quito during the month following one of these earthquakes was described in vivid, non-technical terms
  • . Finally, recommendations for managing Quito's earthquake risk were formulated by a group of Ecuadorian and international specialists.
  • Focal properties of the 1978 earthquakes in the Thessaloniki area
  • A database of historical earthquake activity in the Middle East
  • Asia ; Data base ; Documentation ; Earthquakes ; Historical geography ; Middle East ; Natural hazards ; Statistics
  • The paper examines the structure and production of database and presents a preliminary analysis of the data. This has highlighted numerous aspects of the earthquake hazard that are of particular relevance to existing and proposed developments
  • An exceptional intraplate earthquake sequence in Meloy, Northern Norway
  • A unique earthquake sequence began in Meloy, Northern Norway, in November 1978, and 10weeks later about 10000shocks had been recorded from a volume not larger than 10 8 6km. The largest earthquake occured on 28November, 1978, with an ML magnitude
  • Cave ; Earthquake ; Hungary ; Karst ; Tectonics ; Travertine
  • For establishing the realistic earthquake threat in Hungary the sequence of prehistoric earthquakes need to be known. For this the interval covered by records is too short period, significant earth movements should be known for the last 10-20
  • thousand years. A promising area of research is presented by cave dripstones to uncover possible past earthquakes. - (JS)
  • Faults and earthquakes in Hungarian territory east of the river Tisza
  • The seismic map of the territory east of the river Tisza is presented. An attempt is made to compare the earthquake data with faults traced by seismic surveys and geodetic and gravitational observations.
