  • Trenberth, Kevin E.; Fasullo, John T. (2013)
    Global warming first became evident beyond the bounds of natural variability in the 1970s, but increases in global mean surface temperatures have stalled in the 2000s. Increases in atmospheric greenhouse gases, notably ...
  • Kobeissi, Mohammed A.; El Samad, Omar.; Zahraman, Khaled.; Rachidi, Ibrahim. (2014)
    The presence of high indoor radon concentrations, Cx, is a major concern of the public worldwide. Measurements of indoor radon in South Lebanon have been achieved using CR-39 detectors. Cx values ranged between 30 and 122 ...
  • Universidad de Colima (University of Colima, 1998)
    This document contains abstracts of papers presented at the meeting.
  • Panel on Earthquake Problems Related to the Siting of Critical Facilities, Committee on Seismology Assembly of Mathematical and Physical Sciences, National Research Council (National Academy of Sciences, 1980)
    This report reviews the geologic and seismologic data base available for siting critical facilities and to offer recommendations, particularly of a long-term nature, for improving our ability to site them. Chapters provide ...
  • Field, Ned; Jones, Lucille Marker; Jordan, Tom; Benthien, Mark; Wald, Lisa A (Geological Survey (U.S.), 2001)
    A new Southern California Earthquake Center study has quantified how local geologic conditions affect the shaking experienced in an earthquake. The important geologic factors at a site are (1) softness of the rock or soil ...
  • Crone, Anthony J (Geological Survey (U.S.), 2007-04)
    This preliminary assessment of Afghanistan's seismic hazard incorporates data from thousands of earthquakes combined with data about historical accounts of earthquakes, information about active faults, and models of how ...
  • Swarzenski, Peter W; Campbell, Pamela L.; Poore, Richard Z; Osterman, Lisa E; Rosenbauer, Robert J (Geological Survey (U.S.), 2007)
    A rapid-response expedition was organized after the passage of Hurricane Katrina to investigate potential offshore environmental impacts and storm-induced sediment-transport processes. Both water-column and sediment samples ...

  • Kockelman, William J. (United States Department of the Interior Geological Survey., 1983)
    The purpose of this report is to illustrate some of the range and types of applications of geologic and seismologic information used by planners and decisionmakers to reduce earthquake hazards in Southern California. ...
  • Miller, K. G.; Kopp, R. E.; Horton, B. P.; Browning, J. V.; Kemp, A. C. (2013)
    An analysis of geological and historical sea-level records shows a significant rate of increase in sea-level rise since the nineteenth century. In New Jersey, it is extremely likely that sea-level rise in the twentieth ...
  • Clark, Nigel (2014)
    Recently, earth scientists have been discussing the idea of the ‘Anthropocene’ – a new geologic epoch defined by human geological agency. In its concern with the crossing of thresholds in Earth systems and the shift into ...
  • Crandell, Dwight R. (Geological Survey (U. S.), 1989)
    The deposits of an exceptionally large debris avalanche extend from the base of Mount Shasta volcano northward across the floor of Shasta Valley in northern California. The debris-avalanche deposits underlie an area of ...
  • United States. Federal Emergency Management Agency (United States. Federal Emergency Management Agency, 1988)
    The purpose of this report is to establish a common glossary of dam safety terms to be used, insofar as practicable, by the Federal agencies both within the agencies themselves as well as between agencies. The objective ...
  • Tilling, Robert I. (American Geophysical Union, 1988)
    The 43 papers in this collection are a representative sampling of the nearly 300 papers presented at an international symposium of the same name held in Hilo, Hawaii, in January 1987. Topics addressed include seismicity ...
  • Canadian Association for Earthquake Engineering (Canadian Association for Earthquake Engineering, 1995)
    The Kobe earthquake of January 17 killed over 5,000 people, injured about 30,000, left at least 300,000 homeless, and caused an estimated $100-$150 billion in damage. The disaster demonstrated that even the most technologically ...
  • United States. Federal Emergency Management Agency (United States. Federal Emergency Management Agency, 1992-02)
    In August 1988, a train derailment in northern California also damaged a petroleum pipeline which was buried along the railroad right-of-way. The result was a spill of the pipeline fluids in addition to the derailment (but ...
  • Gore, Rick (1995-04)
    The 1994 Northridge earthquake sent seismologists scrambling. Prediction:more frequent and damaging quakes. A supplement explains the West Coast's geologic tensions.
  • Rojstaczer, Stuart (Geological Survey (U.S.), 1994)
    Earthquakes have long been known to cause changes in the level of oceans, streams, lakes, and the water table. Hydrologic data sets collected from the Loma Prieta quake contain enough detail to enable hypotheses on the ...
