Product Description


"...an excellent new and updated edition. It wouldn't surprise me if this in turn remains a standard text for many years to come." Geological Magazine

"...fills a critical gap in the current literature and will be widely welcomed." Earthquake Spectra

Book Description

This radical revision of Professor Bullen's acclaimed and widely used text provides an introduction to modern seismological theory, with emphasis on both the physical models and the mathematical descriptions of earthquakes and their sources. The book assumes some background in classical physics and mathematics, including simple differential equations, linear algebra and probability theory. It will be suitable for use in undergraduate courses in geophysics, applied mechanics and geotechnology and for graduate courses in seismology and earthquake engineering. In addition, it will serve as a reference text on seismological problems for professionals concerned with earthquakes, Earth structure and wave motion.

The best summary of Seismology since Richter 31 Aug. 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Bullen and Bolt write a book which is small, but packed with information. This is a good reference book to carry with you in the field or to stock on your overcrowded shelf.
