The Geology of Earthquakes is a major contribution that brings together under one cover the many and complex elements of geology that are fundamental to earthquakes and seismology. Here are described and analyzed the basic causes of earthquakes, the resulting effects of earthquakes and faulting on the surface of the Earth, techniques of analyzing these effects, and engineering and public policy considerations for earthquake hazard mitigation. The three authors have played major roles in developing the fundamentals in both scientific and policy matters; thus they speak with an authority that few others could.
