Special Issue on Earthquakes and Triggered Hazards

Geoenvironmental Disasters welcomes submissions to the thematic series on Earthquakes and Triggered Hazards.

Recent earthquakes recorded by dense and various networks (e.g. :accelerometric, GPS, InSAR etc) have provided unprecedented data to understand physical processes of earthquakes and eartquake-triggered phenomena.

Potential topics include but are not limited to:

  • Seismotectonics
  • Earthquakes sources
  • Earthquake ground motion
  • Induced seismicity
  • Building response to earthquake
  • Co-seismic tsunami
  • Landslide triggered by earthquake
  • InSAR data for earthquake analysis
  • Networks response to earthquake
