About this book

The broad spectrum of hydrologic responses to earthquakes offers a better understanding of the earth's hydrologic system at a scale which is otherwise unachievable; it has also allowed field testing of several long-standing hypotheses which may impact on our understanding of some earthquake-induced hazards. The book is based on a graduate course on Earthquake Hydrology at Berkeley jointly offered by the authors in the past few years. It begins with an introduction of the basic materials to form a basis for understanding the chapters which follow. The book provides a comprehensive overview of the field to interested readers and beginning researchers, and a convenient reference to numerous publications currently scattered in various journals.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This book … covers the past and current trends in the research on hydrological changes during and after earthquakes. … The book is concisely written and yet very informative. … its inimitable contents will be a useful resource for the researchers working on earthquake-induced hydrologic changes (and water-induced seismicity) and also function as a superb textbook for the students who would like to know some history and the present status in this area of seismology.” (Koji Uenishi, Pure and Applied Geophysics, Vol. 169, 2012)
