Geophysicists use seismic signals to image structures in theEarth's interior, to understand the mechanics of earthquake and volcanicsources, and to estimate their associated hazards. Keiiti Aki developed pioneering quantitative methods for extracting useful information fromvarious portions of observed seismograms and applied these methods to manyproblems in the above fields.This volume honors Aki's contributions with review papers and results fromrecent applications by his former students and scientific associatespertaining to topics spawned by his work.

Produktbeschreibung
Geophysicists use seismic signals to image structures in theEarth's interior, to understand the mechanics of earthquake and volcanicsources, and to estimate their associated hazards. Keiiti Aki developed pioneering quantitative methods for extracting useful information fromvarious portions of observed seismograms and applied these methods to manyproblems in the above fields.This volume honors Aki's contributions with review papers and results fromrecent applications by his former students and scientific associatespertaining to topics spawned by his work. Discussed subjects includeanalytical and numerical techniques for calculating dynamic rupture and radiated seismic waves, stochastic models used in engineering seismology,earthquake and volcanic source processes, seismic tomography, properties oflithospheric structures, analysis of scattered waves, and more. The volumewill be useful to students and professional geophysicists alike.
