Paleoseismology (the study of "ancient" earthquakes) has become an important component of seismic risk analysis, which is mandated for nuclear power plants, dams, waste repositories, and other critical structures. This book is the first in the English language to be devoted solely to paleoseismology. It summarizes the development of the field from the 1960s to the present, encompassing material that is currently widely dispersed in journal articles. The 10 chapters included in this text span the entire range of techniques currently used in paleoseismic reconstruction, and are contributed by active practitioners at the forefront of paleoseismic research.* First book solely devoted to paleoseismology* Summarizes the development of the field from the 1960's to the present* Includes a comprehensive review of the techniques currently used in paleoseismology* Emphasizes practical methods of data collection and field studies* Covers interpretation of field data based on current theory concerning fault segmentation and recurrence cycles* Contains more than 170 line drawings and 50 photographs of paleoseismic phenomena

This book is by far the best piece I have found yet on Neotectonics. Great reference piece for research and field work. Can't recommend it enough.

Good reference, but the Kindle version (on my Voyage and my iPad) does not display the formulas, so I had to buy the paperback as well.

The ten chapters in this new text are a significant new contribution to paleoseismology. The book is divided according to different types of tectonic geomorphology. Each chapter is written by a geologist or team of geologists who are recognized specialists. It has particular application to California where we have strike-slip faulting, thrust faulting, normal faulting, and liquefaction. Each chapter carries citations of pertinent journal articles that have appeared in the past decade. Clear insights have been gained from these California earthquakes: 1989 Loma Prieta, 1992 Cape Mendocino, 1992 Landers, and 1994 Northridge events. The editor and co-author of several chapters is Dr. Jim McCalprin, an active member of the Association of Engineering Geologists and many other geological professional societies. He is to be commended for this seminal work; it is a unique and new contribution to paleoseismology. It is suitable for upper-division geology students, graduate students, and practicing engineering geologists. I use my copy several times per week for reference and citation in hospital and school site reviews. ---Robert H. Sydnor, Senior Engineering Geologist, California Division of Mines and Geology, Sacramento
