Forensic Explosion Seismology

Technologies and Applications

Editor(s): So Gu Kim; Yefim Gitterman
Contributors: So Gu Kim; Yefim Gitterman;

Book Description

This book discusses three major physical phenomena for active source seismology, namely underwater explosions, underground nuclear explosions, and large-scale on-surface chemical explosions. In particular, contributors consider how to use the technologies and applications in active source seismology and seismo-acoustics, rather than the theoretical approach for the resolution of the forensic explosion seismology in the light of an application for defense sciences. The volume also presents seismological investigations of discrimination between earthquakes and man-made explosions.
