Book Description. This book discusses three major physical phenomena for active source seismology, namely underwater explosions, underground nuclear explosions, and large-scale on-surface chemical explosions.

In particular, contributors consider how to use the technologies and applications in active source seismology and seismo-acoustics. Seismology Bibliography and Book Review. Updated: 09/20/ Seismology Bibliography.

Similar techniques have also successfully been used to study other planetary bodies (planetary seismology), the Sun (helioseismology), and other stars (asteroseismology). Despite obvious differences between stars and planetary bodies, these disciplines share many.

Seismology is the study of earthquakes and Earth structure using the waves that accompany quakes and other Earth vibrations.

Analysis of those seismic waves is the basis of most current knowledge about our planet’s interior. Seth Stein and Michael Wysession, two highly regarded seismologists, have written a massive book that is a welcome addition to the handful of Author: Heidi Houston. The book’s nineteen state-of-the-art chapters were written by the most prominent researchers in Europe and address a comprehensive collection of topics on earthquake engineering, as well as interdisciplinary subjects such as engineering seismology and.

However, textbooks to accompany the ever-changing field of petroleum seismology are very limited; Exploration Seismology (Sheriff and Geldart,revised ) is one of the few examples. We hope our book will add significantly to the achievements of Sheriff and Geldart.

Practical Seismic ers: Book description While living in Japan, John Milne (–) sought to study the Yokohama earthquake, soon realising that scientists lacked the proper tools. Aided by colleagues, he went on to develop the necessary instrumentation, and by he had built the first seismograph capable of recording major earthquakes in any part of the Author: John Milne.

This new edition of the classic text by Aki and Richards has at last been updated throughout to systematically explain key concepts in seismology. Now in one volume, the book provides a unified treatment of seismological methods that will be of use to advanced students, seismologists, and scientists and engineers working in all areas of seismology.

Because a star's different oscillation modes are sensitive to different parts of the star, they inform astronomers about the internal structure of the star, which is otherwise not directly possible from overall properties like brightness and surface temperature.TEXTBOOKS "The World's Greatest Geologic Wonders" "Introduction to Seismology, Earthquakes, and Earth Structure," This is a high school (9th grade) Earth Science book, rewritten for high school based upon the college text by the same name, published by Prentice-Hall.
