Fossil Earthquakes: The Formation and Preservation of Pseudotachylytes - Lecture Notes in Earth Sciences 111 (Hardback)Aiming Lin (author)
- Publisher out of stock
This book focuses on the earthquake source materials produced or deformed by both seismic faulting and aseismic creep within seismogenic fault zones at different levels of the crust. In particular, the mechanisms and processes involved in the formation of earthquake materials are covered. The book is intended to help bridge the gap between seismology and geology and to encourage further studies of earthquake mechanisms and seismic faulting processes.

From the reviews:
"The book by Professor Lin provides an overview of the current understanding of fault-related pseudotachylytes. The overview is based on a comprehensive examination of the literature and on the experience of the author ... . It will be helpful for students and researchers involved in the new era of pseudotachylyte research, which relies more and more on high-velocity friction experiments." (Olivier Fabbri, The Journal of Geology, Vol. 116, 2008)
