Modern seismology has faced new challenges in the study of earthquakes and their physical characteristics. This volume is dedicated to the use of new approaches and presents a state-of-the-art in historical seismology. Selected historical and recent earthquakes are chosen to document and constrain related seismic parameters using updated methodologies in the macroseismic analysis, field observations of damage distribution and tectonic effects, and modelling of seismic waveforms.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"The book dedicated to Jean Vogt (1929-2005) is a collection of articles on historical seismology. ... gives very deep insight into the historical catalogues and the numerous traps in historical data for the inexperienced researcher. It should be read by everyone planning to study historical seismicity. ... As a whole the book presents interesting reading, especially to those who are interested in the specifically presented case studies. ... a book that is a form of tribute to Jean Vogt is fully justified." (Pawel Wiejacz, Pure and Applied Geophysics, Vol. 166, 2009)
