Mitigating the Impact of Impending Earthquakes: Earthquake prognostics strategy transferred into practice

1st Edition

Klaus Brandes, Andreas Vogel
January 01, 1998

The concept of earthquake prognostics, originally initiated in the 80s by a Berlin-based group of scientists and experts, has been further developed at international seminars. The 6th international seminar held in 1991 at the Japanese-German Center in Berlin has considerably contributed towards...
