The second part of the "Seismicity of the European Area" contains further results of the survey of European seismicity, performed during the period 1959 -1967. It was intended to publish the second part with the shortest possible delay. The first part appeared in 1968 when the manuscript of the second part was handed over to the publisher. Unfortunately, due to unexpected technical difficulties the publica tion had to be postponed until the end of 1970. Thus the manuscript reflects the state of knowledge corresponding to the year 1967 when the work on the manuscript was concluded. It was only possible to make minor changes, or to insert additional, very brief information into the catalogue Prague, July 20, 1970 Vit Karnik CONTENTS 1. 1. Introduction 7 1. 2.

A damaging earthquake with intensity VII MSK and local magni= tude 5. 1 occurred on November 8, 1983, at 0:49 GMT near the Belgium town of Liege in the border region between Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands. This most severe earthquake in the northwestern part of Central Europe since more than thirty years has well been recorded by the dense seismic station network in West Germany which consists of more than twenty stations situated in the Lower Rhine Embayment and in the adjoining Rhenish Massif. Most of the stations are equipped with modern digital recording systems. Thus high-quality seismograms are available from the region east and southeast of the epicenter covering a distance range between 70 km and 144 km. From these data the source characteristics of the Liege mainshock and of its largest after= shock have been determined in order to get more information on the seismotectonic processes causing the Liege events. 2. Seismic Station Network During the period of 1976 to 1982 the seismic station network in the Lower Rhine Embayment and in the Rhenish Massif was consi= derably enlarged and mostly equipped with digital recording systems (Figure 1). At present there are more than twenty stations in operation. Most of them are operated by the Department of Earthquake Geology of the Geological Institute of the University of Cologne and the Geo= logical Survey of Nordrhein-Westfalen at Krefeld.

The Workshop on the Seismicity and Seismic Risk in the Off shore North Sea Area was intended to bring together experts from a variety of disciplines as well as interest groups with involve ment in siting, design and construction of offshore structures in the region. Participants came from the fields of geology, seismology, oceanography, geotechnical and structural engineering and risk analysis. The wide range of participant affiliations included institutes, Observatories, universities, oil companies, consultants and insurance firms. All nationalities around the North Sea were present, in addition to some experts from outside the region. All participants were present on the basis of personal invitation. The idea of organizing the Workshop stemmed from conside- tions, such as: the rapidly increasing material and personel investments and versatility of type of structures in the basin.during the past decade; - the present-day important role Jf the North Sea oil and gas production in the economy of Western Europe; and - the increase of potential environmental risks in the region. Although devastating earthquakes are almost unknown in the area and seismic hazard is not great, the seismic risk grows with the growing size and number of structures in the area. The study of the potential seismic risks, therefore, cannot be neglected any more. The siting and design of offshore platforms and submarine pipelines are controlled by the degree of their vulnerability as well as the seismic hazard. in the region.

A workshop on Induced Seismicity was organized during the 27th General Assembly of the International Association of Seismology and Physics of Earth's Interior (IASPEI) in Wellington, New Zealand during January 10-21, 1994. This volume presents a collection of 16 papers accepted for publication which accrued from this workshop. The first three papers address mining activity related to induced seismicity. The fourth paper deals with water injection induced seismic activity, while the remaining 12 papers treat several aspects of water reservoir induced earthquakes. Globally, the Koyna dam creating Shivajisagar Lake in Maharashtra, India, continues to be the most significant site of reservoir-induced earthquakes. With the increase in the number of cases of induced seismicity, there is a growing concern among planners, engineers, geophysicists and geologists to understand the environment conducive to this phenomenon. While the changes in pore-fluid pressure have been identified as the key factor in inducing earthquakes, the phenomenon itself is still poorly understood. This reality thus makes the study of the induced seismicity very important and this volume timely.

The second edition of Principles of Seismology has been extensively revised and updated to present a modern approach to observation seismology and the theory behind digital seismograms. It includes: a new chapter on Earthquakes, Earth's structure and dynamics; a considerably revised chapter on instrumentation, with new material on processing of modern digital seismograms and a list of website hosting data and seismological software; and 100 end-of-chapter problems. The fundamental physical concepts on which seismic theory is based are explained in full detail with step-by-step development of the mathematical derivations, demonstrating the relationship between motions recorded in digital seismograms and the mechanics of deformable bodies. With chapter introductions and summaries, numerous examples, newly drafted illustrations and new color figures, and an updated bibliography and reference list, this intermediate-level textbook is designed to help students develop the skills to tackle real research problems.

Annals of natural disasters have always caused common interest. Scientists and specialists of various domains, teachers, students, post-graduates, journalists .. and merely inquisitive can find useful and didactic information in such annals~ Sad experience of the natural disasters endured gives very important material for humanity. It allows us not only to understand better the phenomenon itself, but also to prepare ourselves for future cataclysms, which our "Mother-Nature" is so rich in. The book by Sergey Soloviev and a group of his collaborators represents a detailed description of tsunami waves and accompanying phenomena in the Mediterranean Sea over a period of approximately four thousand years. Sergey Soloviev, the founder and recognised leader of the Russian scientific school of tsunami researchers, was unable to see the publication of this book, passing away on March 9, 1994. However, his ample experience in investigation and systematisation of tsunami waves for the Pacific area [Soloviev and Go, 1974, 1975; Soloviev, Go and Kim, 1986] has been widely used in compiling this book. The Mediterranean coasts are the cradle of civilisation. Written accounts of past disasters in this region of the Earth are rather numerous and highly reliable. Therefore the results of the tsunami study in the Mediterranean Sea are of specific value both for the scientific community and for humanity at large.

This book presents a comprehensive treatment of earthquake hazards in Lebanon and its vicinity. A thorough review of the tectonics of the region is given alongside a re-assessment of the historical and instrumental earthquake records. Probabilistic seismic hazard analysis is undertaken and hazard maps are presented in terms of peak ground parameters as well as spectral ordinates (acceleration and displacement). Owing to their significance to the economy of Lebanon, the three cities of Beirut, Sidon and Tripoli are subjected to site-specific earthquake hazard assessment. The maps provided are the best available estimates of seismic hazards in Lebanon and are recommended for use in risk assessment. Also, the basis and framework for similar studies in the Levant are given. The rigorous and pragmatic approach adopted by the authors renders the book accessible to design engineers and researchers alike. Contents:Executive SummariesBackground to the StudyEarthquake Hazard — PreliminariesMagnitude Recurrence in Lebanon and Adjacent RegionsSynthesis of Seismicity and Rate InformationSelection of Attenuation RelationshipSource Zone Modelling and Recurrence RelationshipHazard MapsSite-Specific Hazard AssessmentsDeterministic Assessment of Seismic HazardConcluding Remarks on Seismic Hazard in Lebanon Readership: Senior undergraduates in civil engineering; graduate students in earthquake structural engineering, geotechnical engineering and engineering seismology.
