Statistical Physics of Fracture, Friction and Earthquake
by Hikaru Kawamura, et al.
Publisher: arXiv 2011
Number of pages: 52
We review the present status of our research and understanding regarding the dynamics and the statistical properties of earthquakes, mainly from a statistical physical viewpoint. Emphasis is put both on the physics of friction and fracture, which provides a 'microscopic' basis of our understanding of an earthquake instability, and on the statistical physical modelling of earthquakes, which provides 'macroscopic' aspects of such phenomena.

We review a new interdisciplinary field between Geology and Physics: the study of the Earth's geo-neutrino flux. We describe competing models for the composition of the Earth, geological insights into the make up of the continental and oceanic crust.

The book deals with different topics aiming to mitigate geo-hazards: Seismic hazard analysis, Ground investigation for seismic design, assessment and remediation, Earthquake site response analysis and soil-structure interaction analysis.

This book presents the full suite of reflection profiles penetrating the whole crust carried in Australia. The set of reflection data provides an insight into the variations in crustal architecture in the varied geological domains.

Chronology is the backbone of history, and there is a saying stating there is no history without a chronology. Earths evolutionary history is built up by geochronology, i.e. time benchmarks upon which the geological history is built up step by step.
