Earthquakes and Earthquake Engineering. LC Science Tracer Bullet.
Buydos, John F., Comp.
An earthquake is a shaking of the ground resulting from a disturbance in the earth's interior. Seismology is the (1) study of earthquakes; (2) origin, propagation, and energy of seismic phenomena; (3) prediction of these phenomena; and (4) investigation of the structure of the earth. Earthquake engineering or engineering seismology includes the study of the behavior of foundations and structures, materials used in their construction in response to earthquakes, and techniques that lessen the effects of earthquakes on structures. This publication lists relevant sources of information on earthquakes, seismology, and earthquake engineering. Listed in this bibliography are (1) introductory materials, (2) subject headings, (3) basic texts, (4) additional titles, (5) specialized titles, (6) handbooks, (7) bibliographies, (8) government publications, (9) conference proceedings, (10) abstracting and indexing services, (12) journals, (13) representative journal articles, (14) technical reports, (15) selected technical reports, (16) selected materials, and (17) additional sources of information.
