Synopses & Reviews
From the reviews: "This book ... covers the past and current trends in the research on hydrological changes during and after earthquakes. ... The book is concisely written and yet very informative. ... its inimitable contents will be a useful resource for the researchers working on earthquake-induced hydrologic changes (and water-induced seismicity) and also function as a superb textbook for the students who would like to know some history and the present status in this area of seismology." (Koji Uenishi, Pure and Applied Geophysics, Vol. 169, 2012)
The broad spectrum of hydrologic responses to earthquakes offers a better understanding of the earth's hydrologic system at a scale which is otherwise unachievable; it has also allowed field testing of several long-standing hypotheses which may impact on our understanding of some earthquake-induced hazards. The book is based on a graduate course on Earthquake Hydrology at Berkeley jointly offered by the authors in the past few years. It begins with an introduction of the basic materials to form a basis for understanding the chapters which follow. The book provides a comprehensive overview of the field to interested readers and beginning researchers, and a convenient reference to numerous publications currently scattered in various journals.
