This book on Induced Earthquakes is the first of its kind dealing with all kinds of induced phenomena such as water-reservoirs, petroleum and gas extraction, volcanic eruptions, underground mining, underground nuclear explosions, and astronomical tidal stress. Other publications in the field of induced seismicity deal with individual induced phenomena and thus do not cover the entire spectra of induced phenomena. The comprehensive coverage in this book means that basic and fundamental aspects of induced mechanisms of seismic slip have been addressed. Moreover, induced phenomena like underground nuclear explosions and astronomical tidal stress on the planetary scale have been treated in this book for the first time. Thus the study of inducing phenomena having wide spatial and time scale variations is included in the book giving readers and research groups deeper insight into the subject. Audience: The book is eminently suitable for advanced students, research workers, and teachers alike. Due to wide coverage of the subject, both in case histories and theory, the book is of use to academicians, practising specialists, and engineers.

Editorial Reviews

`... Induced Earthquakes is the most comprehensive single book on the subject and is a valuable introduction for graduate students, scientists and engineers to the study of seismic events induced and triggered by human activity and certain natural causes.' S.J. Gibowicz, Institute of Geophysics, Polish Academy of Sciences in Pure and Applied Geophysics, 159 (2002)
