The two volume International Handbook of Earthquake and Engineering Seismology represents the International Association of Seismology and Physics of the Earth's Interior's (IASPEI) ambition to provide a comprehensive overview of our present knowledge of earthquakes and seismology. This state-of-the-art work is the only reference to cover all aspects of seismology--a "resource library" for civil and structural engineers, geologists, geophysicists, and seismologists in academia and industry around the globe.

Part B, by more than 100 leading researchers from major institutions of science around the globe, features 34 chapters detailing strong-motion seismology, earthquake engineering, quake prediction and hazards mitigation, as well as detailed reports from more than 40 nations. Includes chapters and CD-ROM-based content detailing practical resources for seismologists, including additional materials from the printed chapters, a compilation of earthquake catalogs around the world, a global earthquake database with search and display software, selected software for earthquake and engineering seismology, and digital imagery of faults, earthquakes, volcanoes and their effects.

Also available is The International Handbook of Earthquake and Engineering Seismology, Part A.

* Authoritative articles by more than 100 leading scientists
