About this book

Wenchuan earthquake in 2008 was a devastating continental earthquake which caused 69227 deaths, 374643 injured and 17923 missing people. There are many scientific issues revealed by Wenchuan earthquake, and a lot of research work has been published. During May 12–14, 2018, the International Conference for the Decade Memory of the Wenchuan earthquake, in connection to the 4th International Conference on Continental Earthquakes (4th ICCE) and the 12th General Assembly of the Asian Seismological Commission (ASC), was held in Chengdu, China. This book is a collection of some outcomes of this conference. It’s a good professional reference book for seismologists and graduated students to learn about the recent research developments of Wenchuan earthquake and latest research progress on earthquake sequence, seismicity, earthquake physics, earthquake forecasting methods, earthquake disaster assessments, etc.
