New textbook on Seismic Hazard and Risk Analysis
This book describes the principles and procedures behind Probabilistic Seismic Hazard and Risk Analysis, explaining best practices and showing geologists, seismologists, geophysicists, and civil engineers the broader implications of their work. Focusing on procedures rather than the validity of detailed scientific models used for inputs, the book is broadly accessible to students and practitioners in earth sciences and engineering. Early chapters cover the essential elements and concepts of seismic hazard and risk analysis, while later chapters focus on more advanced topics. Appendices provide relevant background in probability and statistics. Each chapter includes worked examples and problem sets for which solutions are provided online. Computer codes are also provided to help replicate specific calculations.
