  • Provides a unique collection of papers detailing Balkan seismicity
  • Examines geodynamics of the South Balkan and Aegean sea regions
  • Offers new approaches to seismological network operations and data analysis
  • Details Innovative and inexpensive seismograph design and real-time earthquake monitoring
  • Covers probabilistic seismic hazard analysis and modeling of topographic responses

Interest in seismology has increased since it is now used as a principal tool for monitoring compliance with a potential Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban treaty (CTBT) banning nuclear testing in any environment. As a result, major countries have launched large-scale research programs including deployment of modern seismograph stations and arrays. This book details these developments for CTBTO (UN), IRIS (USA), MedNet (Italy), Geofon (Germany) and the tiny Karelia network, NW Russia. Station and network operations require near real time record analysis and topics dealt with here are 2-D signal detector, epicenter location and earthquake monitoring.

The Balkans are seismically the most active part of Europe due to multiple plate interactions in the Aegean. This book describes tectonic evolution and on-going geodynamic deformations. Earthquake hazard analysis and topographic site effects are discussed and likewise large earthquake hazards in the Aegean and the Marmara seas relate to practical applications of such procedures. The book gives a good account of past, present and likely future seismological developments in Balkan countries.
