    Sammanfattning : The present thesis collects results of research applying theory and methods of statistical seismology to the seismicity of Central America, a region with a complex tectonic setting controlled by the interaction of four major plates, namely the Caribbean, Cocos, Nazca and North American plates.Three different earthquake catalogues were used for studies focused on stress in a tectonic volume, seismic hazard maps and seismicity patterns (precursors), covering the region 94ºW to 81ºW and 5ºN to 20ºN.

    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Earth sciences; Geovetenskap; NATURAL SCIENCES Earth sciences; NATURVETENSKAP Geovetenskap; Geofysik med inriktning mot seismologi; Geophysics with specialization in Seismology;

    Sammanfattning : Seismology is undoubtedly the most powerful method for determining the structure of the Earth below the deepest borehole. This thesis describes the, use of seismic signals from both man-made and earthquake sources to model seismic velocities within a volume of the Earth. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Earthquake Sources, the Stress Field and Seismic Hazard A Study in Eritrea and its Surrounding

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Lijam Zemichael Hagos; Uppsala universitet.; [2006]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Earth sciences; Seismic hazard; Focal mechanism; Moment tensor inversion; Stress field; Afar depression; Eritrea; Geovetenskap; NATURAL SCIENCES Earth sciences; NATURVETENSKAP Geovetenskap;

    Sammanfattning : Presented in this thesis are some basic concepts and applications of seismic hazard analysis and the elements that influence the amplitude and geometric attenuation of earthquake ground motion. This thesis centers on the identification of the styles of failure, focal mechanisms, and the state of regional stress in the study area. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Prediction of Strong Ground Motion and Hazard Uncertainties

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Universitetsbiblioteket

    Författare :Behrooz Tavakoli; Uppsala universitet.; [2003]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Geophysics; Disaggregation; Ground motion; Monte Carlo simulation; Seismic hazard; Geofysik; NATURAL SCIENCES Physics Other physics Geophysics; NATURVETENSKAP Fysik Övrig fysik Geofysik; Geofysik med inriktning mot seismologi; Geophysics with specialization in Seismology;

    Sammanfattning : The purpose of this thesis is to provide a detailed description of recent methods and scientific basis for characterizing earthquake sources within a certain region with distinct tectonic environments. The focus will be on those characteristics that are most significant to the ground-shaking hazard and on how we can incorporate our current knowledge into hazard analyses for engineering design purposes.
