Gas Migration: Events Preceding Earthquakes
Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungThis breakthrough new book provides the theory and methodology for using gas migration to predict explosive gas buildup and earthquakes. It demonstrates gas migration's potential for vital applications in petroleum geology, seismology, and civil and environmental engineering.Gas Migration illustrates the possible connection between the rates of migration and tectonic activity. The changes in the rate of gas migration aid in the prediction of earthquakes and environmental hazards.With this information, civil engineers, petroleum geologists, seismologist, urban planners, and environmental specialists have a new and powerful conceptual basis and tool to predict explosions and earthquakes.
