  1. 1. Seismic imaging of deep crustal reflectivity in Sweden and Iceland

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Niklas Juhojuntti; Uppsala universitet.; [2001]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Geophysics; seismic; reflectivity; Moho; crust; signal; Geofysik; NATURAL SCIENCES Physics Other physics Geophysics; NATURVETENSKAP Fysik Övrig fysik Geofysik; Geofysik med inriktning mot seismologi; Geophysics with specialization in Seismology;

    Abstract : Seismic reflection profiling, originally developed by the petroleum industry, was adapted to systematic imaging of deep structures some 25 years ago. In continental areas, these measurements often show weakly reflective upper crust and strongly reflective lower crust. READ MORE

  2. 2. Prediction of Strong Ground Motion and Hazard Uncertainties

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Universitetsbiblioteket

    Author : Behrooz Tavakoli; Uppsala universitet.; [2003]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Geophysics; Disaggregation; Ground motion; Monte Carlo simulation; Seismic hazard; Geofysik; NATURAL SCIENCES Physics Other physics Geophysics; NATURVETENSKAP Fysik Övrig fysik Geofysik; Geofysik med inriktning mot seismologi; Geophysics with specialization in Seismology;

    Abstract : The purpose of this thesis is to provide a detailed description of recent methods and scientific basis for characterizing earthquake sources within a certain region with distinct tectonic environments. The focus will be on those characteristics that are most significant to the ground-shaking hazard and on how we can incorporate our current knowledge into hazard analyses for engineering design purposes.

  3. 3. Plane wave electromagnetic measurements for imaging fracture zones

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Lena Persson; Uppsala universitet.; [2001]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Geophysics; Electromagnetic Measurements Fracture Zones; Geofysik; NATURAL SCIENCES Physics Other physics Geophysics; NATURVETENSKAP Fysik Övrig fysik Geofysik; Geofysik med inriktning mot fasta jordens fysik; Geophysics with specialization in Solid Earth Physics;

    Abstract : Electromagnetic fields from distant radio transmitters interact with the resistivity structures in the earth. They can be regarded as plane-wave fields since their penetration depth is much smaller than their wavelength. READ MORE

  4. 4. High-Resolution Seismics Methods Applied to Till Covered Hard Rock Environments

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Björn Bergman; Uppsala universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Geophysics; High-Resolution; Reflection Seismics; Tomography; Nuclear waste repository; Bedrock; Sediments; Geofysik; NATURAL SCIENCES Physics Other physics Geophysics; NATURVETENSKAP Fysik Övrig fysik Geofysik;

    Abstract : Reflection seismic and seismic tomography methods can be used to image the upper kilometer of hard bedrock and the loose unconsolidated sediments covering it. Developments of these two methods and their application, as well as identifying issues concerning their usage, are the main focus of the thesis. READ MORE

  5. 5. Earthquake Sources and Hazard in northern Central America

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Diego José Cáceres Calix; Uppsala universitet.; [2003]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Geophysics; Northern Central America; Probabilistic Seismic Hazard; Body waveform modeling; Seismic Active Deformation; Earthquake Triggering; Geofysik; NATURAL SCIENCES Physics Other physics Geophysics; NATURVETENSKAP Fysik Övrig fysik Geofysik;

    Abstract : Northern Central America is a tectonically complex zone defined by its borders with Cocos and North America plates. The Middle America subduction zone and the strike-slip motion along the North America-Caribbean plate boundary, in that order, control most of its deformation. READ MORE
