LITERATURE SURVEY OF AVAILABLE EARTHQUAKE HAZARD ASSESSMENT STUDIES RELATED TO NORTH EASTERN REGION (2015)
<p>The Northeast India region is one of the most active zones in the world; the region is jawed between the two arcs, the Himalayan arc to the north and the Indo-Burmese arc to the east. The region bounded by latitude 22-290N and longitude 90-980 E, produced ...
Filed under: Earthquake Engineering - Seismic Hazard AnalysisReference: ASSAM STATE DISASTER MANAGEMENT AUTHORITY GOVT. OF ASSAM GUWAHATI 2015
<p>The tunnel may have to be constructed across a faulted zone as it is not always possible to avoid crossing active faults. In these situations, the tunnel must tolerate the expected fault displacements and seismic action, and allow<br />only minor damages ...
Filed under: Tunnel Engineering - Tunnel Seismic DesignReference: 15WCEE
Howard K. A. , John B. E. et al.
The Topock quadrangle exposes a structurally complex part of the Colorado River extensional corridor and also exposes deposits that record landscape evolution during the history of the Colorado River. Paleoproterozoic gneisses and Mesoproterozoic granitoids ...

Caputo R. , Chatzipetros A. et al.
<p>The Greek Database of Seismogenic Sources (GreDaSS) is a repository of geological, tectonic and active-fault data for the Greek territory and its surroundings. In this report, we present the state-of-the-art of an on-going project devoted to the building ...

ACTIVE FAULTING AND EARTHQUAKE-INDUCED SLOPE FAILURES IN ARCHEOLOGICAL SITES: CASE STUDY OF DELPHI, GREECE (2011)
Valkaniotis S. , Papathanasiou G. et al.
The goal of this study is the evaluation of the potential of rockfall occurrence generated by seismic events in the vicinity of the archaeological site of Delphi, Greece.
EVOLUTION OF THE SEISMICITY IN THE EASTERN MARMARA SEA A DECADE BEFORE AND AFTER THE 17 AUGUST 1999 IZMIT EARTHQUAKE (2011)
Karabulut H. , Schmittbuhl J. et al.
<p>We review the long term evolution of seismicity in the eastern Marmara Sea over a decade, before and after the 1999 Mw 7.6 Izmit earthquake. We analyze large scale space-time variations of seismicity in the region and illustrate the impact of the recent ...
Peng Z. , Vidale J. E. et al.
<p>In this paper is performed a systematic survey of triggered tremor along the San Andreas Fault incentral California for the 31 teleseismic earthquakes with Mw 7.5 since 2001.</p>
ACTIVE FAULT AND PALEOSEISMIC INVESTIGATION: EVIDENCE OF A HISTORIC EARTHQUAKE ALONGCHANDIGARH FAULT IN THE FRONTAL HIMALAYAN ZONE, NW INDIA (2008)
Malik J. N. , Nakata T. et al.
The main aim of this paper is to document the geomorphic expression of active faulting based on remote sensingapproach and supplement the occurrence of one single large magnitude event 600 years or so ago along the Himalayan Frontal Thrust (HFT) as deduced ...

ACTIVE FAULT TRACES ALONG BHUJ FAULT AND KATROL HILL FAULT, AND TRENCHING SURVEY AT WANDHAY, KACHCHH, GUJARAT, INDIA (2008)
Morino M. , Malik J. N. et al.
In this paper, we document several new active fault traces along Katrol Hill Fault (KHF) as well as associated geomorphic features, fault exposure along newly identified Bhuj Fault (Morino et al communicated) and trench investigation at Wandhay site.
