Active Global Seismology is a valuable resource for geoscientists, particularly in the field of tectonophysics, geophysics, geodynamics, seismology, structural geology, environmental geology, and geoengineering.
Since then, several North American, European, and Turkish research groups have studied the neotectonics and earthquake potential of the region using different geological and geophysical methods, including GPS studies, geodesy, and passive source seismology
Some results from their studies were presented in major North American and European geological meetings
The Mediterranean region is one of the most important regions for neotectonics and related natural hazards
The event lasted for 37 seconds, killing around 17, 000 people, injuring 44, 000 people, and leaving approximately half a million people homeless
This volume features discussions of Widespread applications in measuring plate motion that have strong implications in predicting natural disasters like earthquakes, both on a regional and a global scale Recent motions, particularly those produced by earthquakes, that provide insights on the physics of earthquake recurrence, the growth of mountains, orogenic movements, and seismic hazards Unique methodical approaches in collecting tectonophysical data, including field, seismic, experimental, computer-based, and theoretical approaches
This volume focuses on the neotectonics of the Eastern Mediterranean region, which has experienced many major extensive earthquakes, including the devastating Izmit, Turkey earthquake on August 17, 1999
This volume highlights the work involving the Eastern Mediterranean region, which has one of the world's longest and best studied active strike-slip horizontal motion faults the east-west trending North Anatolian fault zone, which is very similar to the San Andreas fault in California
