This volume is the outcome of about 30 years of research in the field of earthquake seismology in various parts of South Asia. It comprehensively deals with topics raning from plate tectonics to seismic waves in general. State-of-the-art techniques in earthquake location/relocation, fault plane solution, waveform inversion, seismic tomography, fractals etc. are discussed, and the results are interpreted in terms of seismic source processes in the region.

Editorial Reviews

"This book is indeed a befitting tribute to the great tradition set in India to seismology, to the great pioneering work of many earlier workers led by the great Oldham in the late 19th century. This book will be an asset to all teaching and research institutions in the field of Earth Sciences."Sri. T.M. Mahadevan, Deep Continental Studies in India - Newsletter, Vol. 18, No. 1, 2008Endorsement:It is an excellent treatise on the subject .... There are several books on Indian seismology but I have no hesitation to rate your book as the best. .... Your book will be a reference treatise for long time to come.Prof. S.K. Guha, Pune, India
