Further applications of the stochastic stress release model to historical earthquakedata.
Compared to other reported increases for earthquakeinsurance in New Zealand, this would have been an exceptionally good result.
The remaining discrepancies appear to be due to the New Zealand earthquakedataset comprising largely paleoearthquake and pre-instrumental data, which produce larger estimates of Mw and displacement than more recent data.
Hope for more earthquakesurvivors is fading in Taiwan.
International records show that earthquakeoccurrence is spread over all weather conditions, during all seasons of the year, and during both day and night.
There's the atom re-arranger, the giant rubber band (designed for tripping road-runners), the Correspondence School of Boxing, Earthquakepills, instant girl, hitch-hiker's thumb, invisible paint and so much more!
A LAT front-pager distills scientists' early thoughts about what the Turkey earthquakeportends for California's seismic future.
In this spirit, the lead paragraph of the Journal's earthquakearticle merits quoting in full: "A powerful 45-second earthquake cut a swath through Turkey's industrial heartland, killing thousands of people, shutting businesses, wrecking major power lines and jolting national confidence just as the economy showed signs of leaving 1999's recession behind."
Projects still under way include: reboxing and checking of Police series files, earthquakeprotection for boxes of photographic negatives and lantern slides; planning for further treatment of War Art items.
ABSTRACT: This study reviews twenty-nine earthquakereconnaissance reports from developing countries in the period from 1990-1998.
The time-history response of this system (linear soil behaviour and nonlinear structural response) subjected to actual earthquakerecords is evaluated by means of the structural analysis software RUAUMOKO developed at the University of Canterbury.
Find a safe zone for some earthquakerefugees.
"Just when you think things couldn't be worse, it turns out that they are," it said Wednesday in an editorial, pointing out that only 13 of the country's 20 earthquakewarning stations had been working at the time.
The location of epicenter with critical earthquakeconcept.
After the 1848 and 1855 earthquakesbrick was not a popular material for construction, because it was too rigid in an earthquake.
Mr Brunsdon said the earthquakerupture occurred entirely within the subducting tectonic plate beneath Seattle.
Intensity - the size of the earthquake as measured by the earthquakeeffects felt and seen by people.
This conference theme was supported by a Keynote Presentation given by leading US earthquakeengineer Dr. 332362
He has particular interest in the assessment of the behaviour of low rise buildings, non-structural components and building contents under earthquakeattack.
The Inwood's property, not far from the earthquakeepicentre, took the full force of the shockwaves.
John had a link to the Virtual Earthquakesite, developed at California State University (Los Angeles) by Gary Novak.
Dynamic response of retaining walls to earthquakeexcitation has also been studied both analytically and experimentally.
Earthquakeexperts tell the LAT that strict building codes make the city better prepared for a 7.4 (it's official) temblor than Turkey, despite similarities in their fault systems.
View the fascinating geology, earthquakefaults, ancient forests, river gravel and shell fossils.
Data from trenches dug in 1991 (unpublished data from IGNS) and in this study reveal evidence for the last two surface ruptureearthquakes.
When it was built, it had 15 tiers, but the top came tumbling down in a Ming-eraearthquake.
Because the volcano is still active — although dormant at present — these areas continue to grow, and experienceearthquakes.
In an editorial Monday, the Turkish Daily News said Turks are "thrilled to see the American president as their guest, especially at a time when we are going through some very hard days, having to cope with the national trauma of two successive major killerearthquakes and the never-ending hardships suffered by our masses because of economic crises."
The 'tidal wave' caused by an under-seaearthquake in Chile in May 1960, covered the 6000 nautical miles (11,000km) to New Zealand in about 12 hours, travelling at a speed of about 900 km/hr!

Tsunamis are caused by underseaearthquakes, seabed slides, or large volcanic eruptions (Krakatoa 1883), and are therefore equally impossible to predict.
